190000LC Requisition #
Grade: Band D
Salary: £28,353 - £39,705
Closing Date: Sunday 27th October 2019 Midnight

Sitting at the heart of the West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit (WMCTU), the Business Improvement Team provides specialist expertise to drive the continued improvement of WMCTU service delivery. Understanding our Performance is vital to our strategy.

We now have an exciting opportunity for a performance professional to join the team. If you have the expertise and commitment, you’ll thrive in this managerial position and help to realise our ambitions.

With at least 3 years’ experience of effective Performance Analysis and Improvement, ideally at a corporate level, you’ll be able to demonstrate positive results.  Your ability to analyse and interpret complex information and produce persuasive written reports and presentations will be essential. We want you to be able to plan, organise and co-ordinate work and be capable of balancing competing demands and priorities.


You’ll be representing the WMCTU at a local, regional and national level and you must be comfortable working across portfolios with senior managers.


As a collaborative, dedicated and driven individual, you’ll be adaptable and ready to take on any analysis challenge as the Business Improvement Team plays its part in keeping people safe from terrorism.

This is a security cleared designated post. The preferred candidate will be required to undertake this vetting procedure.


If you have any queries regarding this role, please contact ct-employeeresourcing@west-midlands.pnn.police.uk.


“You must be a British citizen to work for the West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit. If you hold dual nationality, one component of which is British, you may also be considered. However, if successful, you may be asked to relinquish your non‐British nationality (and any entitlement you may have to a foreign nationality) as a condition of your confirmation of appointment with WMCTU. One of your parents should also be British or have substantial ties to the UK. In the latter instance; substantial ties means that your parent is a citizen of a British Overseas Territory, a Commonwealth citizen, US citizen, EEA citizen, British national or citizen overseas, and they would need to have demonstrable connections with the UK by way of family history or have been resident here for a substantial period of time.


If you're already married to, or cohabiting with, a person who isn't a British citizen, you may still be eligible for employment at the discretion of the Department. You should note however, that marriage to, or cohabitation with, a person who isn't a British citizen after appointment may, in some circumstances, result in the withdrawal of security clearance and subsequent transfer to another Department, or (if this is not possible or the officer does not wish to transfer) dismissal. Each case will be considered on its merits, taking into account the ties between the person involved and the United Kingdom.”


Diversity and Inclusion Vision: “Maximise the potential of people from all backgrounds through a culture of fairness and inclusion to deliver the best service for our communities”
