Counter Fraud Officer
The Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) is the organisation through which the Mayor of London exercises his role as the Police and Crime Commissioner for London and is led by the Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime. MOPAC undertakes a broad range of statutory duties and works closely with the Mayor of London, Deputy Mayor and Metropolitan Police Service to deliver the priorities that will create safer London communities.
This is an exciting time to join MOPAC, to drive the delivery of a new Police and Crime Plan for London. We are a dedicated, professional, highly skilled workforce and are committed to equality and diversity.
You’ll be joining the MOPAC Directorate of Audit, Risk and Assurance, a well-respected unit that has the interesting and challenging job of providing the internal audit service for a number of clients including the Metropolitan Police Service, the London Fire Brigade and the Greater London Authority.
For you this offers a huge variety of challenges and the opportunity to make a big impact across our client base. You’ll plan and lead a wide range of counter fraud work, conducting investigations into alleged fraud, irregularities or misconduct, discussing your findings with middle and senior managers, and highlighting any incidents through clear, high-quality reporting.
As well as having significant experience as an investigator, preferably gained undertaking complex and/or sensitive fraud and complaints investigations, practical knowledge of criminal justice practice is also desirable. This may be supported by a relevant qualification. Either way you’ll be the kind of person who has an analytical and enquiring mind, and the personal qualities and credibility to operate effectively as a representative of MOPAC.
The role provides career progression opportunities that could take the salary from a Grade 6 at £39,273 per annum, to a Grade 5 at £46,362 per annum depending on qualification, business needs and experience.
Political Restriction; Under the Local Government and Housing Act 1989 (as amended by the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011) all members of staff of the MOPAC will be politically restricted without the right to apply for an exemption.
You will be expected to undergo the necessary security vetting.
