The Job

Financial Investigation Officers required

Government client is recruiting for a Financial Investigation Officer with experience of conducting financial investigations under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 including, cash detention, confiscation, part 5 (civil recovery), listed assets and account freezing order investigations. Experience of taking these
financial investigations through the associated Court hearings is also required.


Essential: Current or recent POCC accreditation as a Financial Investigator and Confiscator.


* Experience of drafting summaries / statements in criminal and civil
proceedings and attending Court to give evidence.
* Experience of analysing complex financial data and the presentation of such in
an evidential format for Court and the completion and service of financial
orders.
* Experience of applying the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 in criminal
investigations.


There are 3 roles, 1 in each of the following locations: Cardiff, Manchester, Hounslow.
**It's critical to highlight the fact that the contractors will be supporting staff in more than once office and therefore the role requires flexibility and a willingness to travel occasionally. Some of the mentoring can be done remotely via MS Teams, but some of the more complex work the trainees undertake will benefit from having someone sat beside them. For context, the Manchester command also covers Liverpool, Belfast, Durham and Leeds; Cardiff also covers East Midlands and Hounslow also covers Croydon.
Please note the roles are office based up to 5 days a week (some hybrid when possible)


This role is required to support the development of newly trained financial investigators as they progress through the FI pathway. Current FI accreditation is desirable but not essential as candidates must have significant experience of working on POCA investigations and if not holding current FI accreditation candidates will have held FI accreditation recently, they will be expected to proactively share their POCA knowledge with FIs across multiple CFI locations and therefore some travelling will be required.

ESSENTIAL:
* Experience of conducting financial investigations under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 including, cash detention, confiscation, part 5 (civil recovery), listed assets and account freezing order investigations. Experience of taking these financial investigations through the associated Court hearings is also required.
* Experience of drafting summaries / statements in criminal and civil proceedings and attending Court to give evidence.
* Experience of analysing complex financial data and the presentation of such in an evidential format for Court and the completion and service of financial orders.
* Experience of applying the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 in criminal investigations.


Security Clearance: SC clearance (vetting will be required prior to start, so if not available just yet could work in your favour.)
Interview Process: MS Teams
