Job description

Education Team x2 - CEOP - HP1008701DB
1 x Permanent, 1 x 2 Year Fixed Term Placement

Location: London

Would you like the opportunity to contribute to the safeguarding children against the threat of child sexual exploitation and abuse?

The CEOP Command is a high-profile part of the National Crime Agency, attracting significant attention from Ministers, parliament and a wide range of stakeholders both in the UK and abroad.

As an Education Officer you will be part of a small and dynamic team whose role it is to:

Helping to maintain and develop CEOPs education programme Thinkuknow.

Translate the very latest research and intelligence into educational resources used with millions of UK children.

Support projects developing new educational resources, such as lesson plans and activities for use in schools.

Maintain the Thinkuknow website, creating relevant content on a weekly basis for children and young people, parents, carers and professionals.

Design and deliver training on the very latest developments in children's online safety to professionals from across the children’s workforce on the CEOP Ambassador course and represent CEOP at national forums when requested.

As with all roles in CEOP, this role may involve some infrequent exposure to child abuse material. Officers must therefore undertake a psychological wellbeing assessment before taking up post and at regular intervals once in the role.

Salary: The salary for this position is £25,713.  Where existing Civil Servants apply on transfer to the NCA at the equivalent grade, pay principles on Civil Service transfers will apply.

Additional London Weighting Allowance of £3,258.

This role is open to External candidates & Civil Servants on lateral & promotion basis.

About the NCA
Serious and organised crime is one of the gravest threats to the UK's national security. The National Crime Agency sits at the heart of the law enforcement response, protecting the public by disrupting and bringing to justice those serious and organised criminals who pose the highest risk to the UK.

We identify and disrupt serious and organised crime by investigating and securing the prosecution of those responsible. We also lead, support and coordinate work across law enforcement, locally, regionally and nationally to reduce the impact of serious and organised crime on the UK’s communities and deter people from becoming involved in such activity.

NCA officers work at the forefront of law enforcement, building the best possible intelligence picture of all serious and organised crime threats; relentlessly pursuing the most serious and dangerous offenders; and developing and delivering specialist capabilities on behalf of law enforcement and other partners.

There's no such thing as a typical NCA officer. We come from different backgrounds and cultures, speak many language and have diverse skills and experiences. What we have in common is dedication and a commitment to protecting the public from serious and organised crime.
