Investigators | £18,981 plus 10% shift allowance
The Investigation Management Unit (IMU) is recruiting Investigators.
The post in the Investigation Management Unit is a challenging and interesting crime management role, speaking with Kent Officers in the investigation of crime allegations. It is key that all the information gained from the scene of a crime is recorded accurately and efficiently onto the crime recording system.
We’re seeking highly motivated individuals, capable of working to exacting standards to provide a high quality of service to the customer. You’ll need to evidence typing speeds to a minimum of 30 words per minute, coupled with the ability to accurately record information on computerised systems. If you’re thorough, methodical, good at developing working relationships and have a good eye for detail, then why not consider a new career working at the heart of investigations at the Investigation Management Unit.
This isn’t a 9 to 5 role and as such IMU Investigators will be required to work a shift pattern over seven days a week. View the shift patterns.
Your main responsibilities will include:
Previous experience, while advantageous is not essential as a nine-week training programme is in place and you’ll be supported by a coaching process during your initial stages of employment until you are confident enough to work independently.
This is an important and challenging role which is key to driving force performance in Kent Police - so why not consider this as a new career?
There will be two intake cohorts scheduled to commence on in May and October 2013.
To be considered, you’ll need to attend a mandatory briefing session in Maidstone on Thursday 24 January 2013 at 7pm. This is an opportunity for you to learn as much about the role and the organisation as you need to, and make sure it’s the right role for you. There will also be an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have and meet members of the IMU Management Team.
Once you’ve attended the briefing, you’ll be invited to sit an audio and typing skills test, and undergo a basic investigation exercise. It may sound daunting, but members of the Force Recruitment Team and the IMU Team will be on hand to guide you through the process.
Dates for these tests will be week commencing Monday 4 February 2013. Time slots will be allocated.
If you meet the required standard at this stage, we’ll invite you back to attend an interview as well as a hearing an eyesight test. Interviews are currently scheduled to take place week commencing 11 February 2013, but we’ll give you as much notice as possible when confirming your interview date and time.
As with any police role, there's also a full security vetting process that we’ll need to complete before we can appoint you.
Please note, Kent Police operates an e-recruitment process and as such communication will be made with you via email where possible during the recruitment process. Please ensure you check your email regularly for confirmation and assessment notification.
The closing date for the receipt of applications is Friday 4 January 2013.
