Role will not be an immediate start due to security vetting timescales, this may be useful if you have a notice period anyway or aren't available straight away etc

Law enforcement client has a specific project to be completed which requires a digital forensics officer to create case files, "compounds" and "webreview" files on the "NUIX" system in relation to a major, long running ICU investigation which encompasses more than 20 terrabytes of information. CPS will not consider any kind of charging decision until they are content that the digital forensics work on this investigation is complete, including all the CPIA disclosure checks that need to be carried out.

Support to ICU case teams on processing digital devices uplifted in the context of recent investigations. In particular, the operation is under pressure to ensure that digital material is processed as quickly as possible. Increased capacity within the ICU DF team is vital due to the existing volume of digital forensics work being undertaken on ICU casework. DF work must be done according to specific, methodical and nationally recognised steps - shortcuts are not available. To speed up work requires more people to do the work rather than any kind of smarter or more efficient approach.

Sound understanding of the NUIX digital forensics platform, including: processing material, creating compounds, creating subsets, creating Web Review files and being able to explain and document all processes undertaken.

Able to demonstrate excellent interpersonal communication skills.

Good legislative knowledge e.g. ECHR, RIPA, Data Protection, Discrimination, etc., and knowledge of national standards on Digital Forensics, specifically ISO 17025 and the Forensic Science Regulators Codes of Practice.

Work effectively with minimum supervision whilst remaining team focused. Ability to work under pressure, prioritise workloads and produce accurate work within tight deadlines. Flexible approach to working hours. Able to evidence self-motivation and use of own initiative. Excellent time management skills.
