Previous experience gained within government, military or law enforcement is highly desirable.

In response to COVID -19, these roles will be WFH full time until mid-late 2021, after which time there will be flexible home working with around a day a week in the office. Applicants therefore must be in a position to work from their home and have a secure workstation appropriate for home working for an extended period.

Responsibilities;

* Research and track a range of events and bad actors to build up intelligence pictures, identifying potential focal points through a range of sources, including AI (Artificial Intelligence) human intelligence (HUMINT) and Open Source (OSINT)

* Collate and validate information, evaluating the reliability of sources and credibility of intelligence.

* Use static and dynamic analysis techniques to contribute to reporting and our internal knowledge base

* Use various analytical techniques to assess and interpret potential intelligence data

* Liaise and collaborate with colleagues to gather further information to piece together the wider picture

* Develop relationships with customers to understand their intelligence requirements as part of the on-going intelligence cycle

* Produce well-written, well-structured, timely and impactful threat products and assessments in clear English, with minimal support, that meet the requirements of stakeholders

* Suggest and develop tooling to improve collection and analysis capabilities

* Develop expertise in specific online harm risk areas including Child Exploitation, Violent Extremism, Harmful & Dangerous and Mis/Dis Information

Essential Criteria;

* Previous experience of working within an intelligence role with first class report writing skills

* Knowledge of social media intelligence and analysis

* You will be working on critical and high-risk incidents so you'll need to be a natural problem-solver who can prioritise and identify problems and make quick, sound decisions

* Flexibility and creativity are key, as is a keen interest in data analysis and exploitation.

* You'll also have a passion for learning, as well as an interest in world current affairs.

* Enjoy working with a large range of data - analysing, distilling & interpreting it in order to produce insightful and impactful reports for our customers

* You will be a vital part of a multi-faceted team, you'll also need strong collaboration and negotiation skills, plus a talent for communicating clearly and succinctly

* Flexibility over working hours will be needed as you will be working 5 days over 7 which will include weekends and bank holidays and be required to work flexible shift patterns in core hours. Based on current resource levels this will likely result in working circa 8 weekends per year

The following language skills are highly desirable, though not essential; Russian, Arabic, German, Portuguese, Spanish, Turkish, Hindi, Urdu, Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese and Thai.

Competitive salaries + comprehensive benefits packages for all roles.
