An exciting opportunity has arisen to become a regional Analyst within Avon and Somerset Constabulary.  You will provide quality analysis to inform and influence the decision making for the tactical and strategic police response of the regional unit.

There are multiple roles in multiple locations across the region.

The role can progress to S01 grade once IPP accreditation has been achieved and once a number of criteria has been evidenced against the SO1 role profile through an internal auditable process.  Therefore the role is graded Scale 6 / S01.

In this role, your Main Responsibilities will be:

  • To scan, select and evaluate information from a range of sources and apply appropriate analytical techniques to identify trends and patterns and highlight threat and risk and emerging issues.
  • To produce quality written and visual analytical products which demonstrate an ability to develop inferences, test hypothesis, identify knowledge gaps and make recommendations to inform the policing response.
  • To disseminate the results of analysis through the appropriate presentation methods, including appropriate visual investigative analysis techniques where possible, to police and partners both local, regional and national.
  • Identifying and developing evidential and intelligence links between offenders and offences at a local and regional level. Presenting and explaining analysis to Courts as a Professional Witness as required.

Skills, Experience and Qualifications required:

  • A degree with a high proportion of data interpretation or significant experience of analysing and evaluating data for presentation or equivalent work experience.
  • Excellent communication skills, both written and oral with experience of preparing and presenting high level analytical reports on complex issues.
  • Computer literacy detail knowledge and evidence of your ability to use spreadsheets and databases.
  • Ability to make recommendations with accurate and well defined analysis.
  • Experience of working with minimal supervision and using your own initiative in a dynamic environment with changing priorities.
  • It would also be desirable to have worked in a similar analytical environment in a large scale organisation or security environment and have knowledge and understanding of the CONTEST Strategy.

In order to apply you must have a 5 year ‘checkable history’ in the UK – ideally this means that you would have been resident in the UK for the last 5 years.

You must be a British citizen to work for the department. If you hold dual nationality, one component of which is British, you may also be considered. However, if successful, you may be asked to relinquish your nonBritish nationality (and any entitlement you may have to a foreign nationality) as a condition of your confirmation of appointment with the department.  One of your parents should also be British or have substantial ties to the UK. In the latter instance; substantial ties means that your parent is a citizen of a British Overseas Territory, a Commonwealth citizen, US citizen, EEA citizen, British national or citizen overseas, and they would need to have demonstrable connections with the UK by way of family history or have been resident here for a substantial period of time. 

If you’re already married to, or cohabiting with, a person who isn’t a British citizen, you may still be eligible for employment at the discretion of the department. You should note however, that marriage to, or cohabitation with, a person who isn’t a British citizen after appointment may, in some circumstances, result in the withdrawal of security clearance and subsequent transfer to another department, or (if this is not possible or the officer does not wish to transfer) dismissal. Each case will be considered on its merits, taking into account the ties between the person involved and the United Kingdom.

Work on a bank or public holiday as part of the normal working week will be compensated in line with conditions of service.
