Set the standards for application development – and help protect the country

Today, more than ever before, an agile approach to terrorist threats and attacks is important. Here at the Counter Terrorism Policing ICT function, we work on projects, systems and processes of national significance and importance – and we need a National Application Lead to help us establish and grow our Application Development function.

It’s your chance to use your knowledge and coding skills to help keep the nation safe. As part of our Architecture Team, you’ll develop national network architecture standards to create apps of the highest quality. You’ll be the lead developer across all applications developed in-house, ensuring that all applications follow set standards. A natural leader, you’ll provide mentoring and support to less experienced members of the team.

We’ll look to you to generate a set of architectural models that are aligned to best practice and sustainable within the NCTPHQ ICT environment. Alongside working with the Architecture Team to ensure that all the processes and models are suitable for widespread adoption, you’ll design, code and maintain national applications that support our business services and users.

You’ll come to us with a sound understanding of IT architecture, systems and standards in policing – and the drive to do something great for the country. Your significant expertise in application architectures, ideally evidenced by Microsoft Certification, will be matched by a proven track record of owning and implementing application standards. It’s important that you can use these standards and documentation to produce secure systems. The ability to code in a range of languages – including C# and Javascript- will be essential.

To apply, please visit our website to download a role specific information pack and application form via the 'Apply' button.

Completed applications must be submitted by Thursday 1st February 2018.

We view diversity as fundamental to our success. To tackle today’s complex policing challenges, we need a workforce made up from all of London’s communities. Applications from across the community are therefore essential.

Apply your intelligence to counter terrorism policing.
