Behind the front line. Applying your skills. Supporting officers every day. As an ICT configuration analyst, you’ll be part of an expert team enabling Counter Terrorism Policing (CTP) to perform its vital work.
Based in a small team within Counter Terrorism Policing HQ (CTPHQ), you’ll provide asset and configuration management to the entire CTP network. Managing relevant databases, you’ll tackle all aspects of asset and configuration management covering both hardware and software. Accuracy will be critical, as will proven experience and good communication skills. With these talents, you’ll win the trust of colleagues as you liaise with the wider CTP network.
Day to day, you’ll take on a variety of tasks, from creating validation reports to managing user licence records for multiple 'Software as a Service' (SaaS) platforms. You’ll therefore need a proven track record in asset and configuration, including experience of asset and CMDB (configuration management database) management within an IT service management (ITSM) framework lead environment. As you’ll be acting as the main contact for asset and configuration matters, you’ll need to be good with people, too.
Organised, analytical and able to make decisions? Join us, and play your part in keeping the country safe.
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.
