Essex Police seeks to offer unique and varied opportunities to its workforce.

Essex is a rapidly expanding county; many rural areas being developed into large conurbations.  The changing shape of the county presents significant challenges to Essex Police and its employees.

Essex Police collaborates with Kent Police in a number of areas and continues to develop strong working partnerships with local agencies and authorities. Essex Police seeks to offer unique and varied opportunities to its workforce.

Our commitment to promoting fairness and equality is underpinned by our Positive Action programme. In line with equality legislation, Positive Action initiative offers under-represented groups additional support to ensure equality of opportunity for the recruitment process is fair for everyone.

The networks are for those with similar characteristics and are used for skill sharing, information sharing, progression opportunities and sometimes friendship in what can be a challenging environment. Anyone who works for Essex Police can join all networks at any point in their career, and contribute as much or as little to the network as desired.

Flexible working and part time working will be considered on an individual’s basis and considering the organisational needs.

An opportunity to join a specialist capability, unique to ROCU’s is now open to applicants, that would like to be a part of identifying and disrupting organised criminals operating across the eastern region.

Key Responsibilities:

  • To complete lines of enquiry into Child Sexual Exploitation and Abuse.
  • Liaison with national and international partners to develop intelligence and identify safeguarding risks.
  • Review and develop sensitive intelligence to identify perpetrators of online child sexual abuse.
  • Build evidential packages to support prosecution of child sexual offences.
  • Support to the on-line deployment of undercover officers in identifying those with a sexual interest in children and support to any deployment relating to a child sexual abuse crime in action.
  • Handling of exhibits, recording of sensitive unused material 

Hours of work: The individual will need to be able to work Monday to Friday between the hours of 0800 – 1600. Some flexibility will be required in working hours to meet operational demands.
