Help Counter Terrorism Policing perform at its best.
The Joint Counter Terrorism, Prison and Probation Hub (JCTPPH) is a multiagency unit for the Met. It aims to coordinate efficient intelligence that enables more effective management of national security risk by extremist offenders (known as pathfinder cases) in prisons or on probation supervision in the community. As hub coordination team manager, you’ll lead a dynamic team that provides vital coordination both internally and externally with partners, customers and suppliers.
In this key role, you’ll get the exciting opportunity to support some of the most pressing challenges in Counter Terrorism Policing (CTP) today. Working alongside the detective chief inspector and JCTPPH capability leads, you’ll deliver the business and personnel coordination functions, in line with its mission.
You’ll be responsible for a variety of functions, including everything from onboarding and off boarding staff, to managing personnel processes, such as vetting and recruitment, and the JCTPPH shared mailboxes. You’ll also provide key support to the chief of staff across a variety of functions including procurement and producing management information. Your day to day will bring you into contact with a wide range of contacts. Therefore, strong communication skills, both verbal and written, are vital.
You’ll be involved in event management and facilitation, all while being the link between agencies and regions. You’ll also be responsible for department budgets and weekly or monthly management reports. More than that, you’ll make sure the team’s wellbeing is prioritised within a supportive, inclusive culture.
Experience of working in CTP, prisons or probation is not essential. Instead, we’re looking for someone with excellent organisation and people skills. Someone highly motivated, proactive and confident managing a team, and who will become a positive role model for everyone around them.
Now more than ever is the time to join the Met. We want our team to be representative of our country and are looking to recruit people who understand and reflect the diverse communities we engage with every day.
Besides the rewarding nature of the job itself, a competitive salary and a civil service pension, you'll also benefit from excellent career and professional development. If you’re looking to advance, we’ll support your progress.
Please note that some UK travel will be required.
