Lead Investigator - Birmingham & Wakefield - £30k - no experience req'd


New on CivvyJobs.com:

You could be talking to the Chief Constable, a witness or a bereaved mother. But could you remain independent?

We're now launching a second round of recruitment for these crucial roles, which investigate serious and sensitive complaints and allegations of misconduct made against the police. They are suitable for

people who can maintain focus, objectivity and impartiality in a complex and high-profile search for important details. And who can deal sensitively and empathetically with people in difficult circumstances.

Joining our Investigations team as either an Investigator or a Lead Investigator, you'll lead or support a broad range of cases. You'll identify and collect evidence to analyse, assess and determine the facts. Along the way, you'll speak searchingly yet sensitively to bereaved families, complainants, police officers and local communities. You'll be a reassuring presence throughout the process. Ultimately, we'll look to you to produce clear and balanced reports with recommendations. We are a completely independent organisation and we'll expect you to be too.

No inside knowledge or experience of the police is necessary. Your ability to think impartially is more important than any specific qualifications, so we need you to have experience in conducting investigations in the public, private or voluntary sector - from planning and scoping, to interviewing and presenting evidence. The ability to assess evidence in situations with serious consequences is crucial at both levels.
