Counter Terrorism Police
Data is key to Counter Terrorism Policing (CTP) and its importance is only set to grow. As a Data Standards Manager, you’ll make sure our data standards are maintained to the highest level, transforming our critical security mission and helping CTP to perform at its best.
This is your opportunity to play an integral role in the development of our data standards across the UK. As a Data Standards Manager, you’ll help us transform the way we use and apply data, so we can get the most from it and keep the country safe.
You’ll join us at the heart of the CTP network, CTPHQ. Here, you’ll contribute to our vision: to make CTP a data-centric organisation, sharing information with our network to protect against any threat. The key is to support a common data model that’s aligned with those of our strategic partners across the wider law enforcement landscape. As well as connecting with these partners, you’ll recommend data standards to improve the use and reuse of CTP data across all new and existing applications.
Your expertise will be crucial, as you review current standards, maintain a data standards catalogue and ensure we comply with legal regulations. Experience is therefore essential as well as good communication skills.
In return, we can offer a rewarding job, a competitive salary and a Civil Service pension. You’ll also benefit from excellent career and professional development.
