Analyst – Interesting and varied work in crime and policing analysis, great team, flexible hours offered.

Do you want to make a difference to your community?  Do you want an interesting and varied workload?  Do you want to work for a department that recognises the value of its people?  If you have an inquisitive mind, great problem solving skills and top level analytical skills then we want to hear from you.

The Organisation:  Norfolk & Suffolk Constabularies are devoted to the safety and wellbeing of the people who live and work in both counties.  This is achieved by building on a wealth of traditional policing methods with innovative new approaches. Utilising technology and evidence-based research we create (nationally acclaimed) solutions to the issues faced in modern policing. Over 4,000 police staff and officers with a diverse range of skills and expertise work with partner agencies across the two counties to provide a quality service to the public. They are supported by an award-winning wellbeing service and a number of staff networks that provide support for groups that share similar characteristics, life experiences, values and beliefs. Both constabularies are committed to developing a diverse, equal and inclusive workforce that is representative of the communities they serve.

The Position:  We are looking for analysts to fill a range of posts in the Strategic, Business and Operational Services (SBOS) department, providing analytical support to the intelligence, strategic and performance functions across both constabularies. We will be recruiting into a range of contract types (permanent, temporary, full time and part time) and applicants who are successful but are not offered a post immediately will be held on a select list for six months. Applicants will be expected to have strong experience in applying analytical techniques in any field, which drive decision making within their organisation.  We are looking for people with a “can do” attitude, that are creative and have excellent interpersonal skills to join our highly regarded team.  If this sounds like you, please get in touch. SBOS is an exciting department that puts people at the heart of its vision, and the salary for our analysts is band E (£28,725 – £32,673). 

The Location:  The post will be based at either Norfolk or Suffolk Police Headquarters.
