Researcher (Counter Corruption Unit) - JRN 30241
 

The role
An opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and motivated individual to deliver a research service to support The Counter Corruption Department.

You will be involved in data collection, tactical and strategic research and the preparation of reports for the Chief Officer team, the Independent Office for Police Conduct and Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary.  

The role is unique in that you will be conducting research and analysis to identify and investigate internal and external corruption threats to Northumbria Police. You will assist the operational team to investigate corrupt staff and those who seek to corrupt staff, supporting prosecution where appropriate. 

 In return for your dedication and experience, we offer 23 days’ leave, excluding bank holidays, increasing to 28 days for 5 years+ service.  We support our people inside and out of work – offering a very competitive pension scheme, childcare vouchers, and discounts on shopping and eating out thanks to the Blue Light Card. And to take care of your physical and mental well-being, we’ve invested in extensive paid sick leave, trained mental health first aiders on-site, an employee advice service and access to gyms in some stations. 


What will I be doing?
Your key responsibilities will include extracting and preparing qualitative and quantitative data for analysis from a variety of sources and your research and data collection will contribute to the compilation of reports, organisational learning and performance.

 
What do I need?
Ideally educated to A level standard or with appropriate relevant research experience, you will be an excellent communicator and have the ability to collate and present large volumes of complex information both internally and externally.

To be effective in this role you will have experience of working with large data sets using Microsoft Excel and other Microsoft Office applications. Experience of IBM i2 software would be desirable, although not essential and you will have the ability to become proficient in a range of bespoke software. You will have the ability to work independently and creatively, with a keen attention to detail.
