Job description: Service Care Solutions are looking for a Regional SPOC (Single Point Of Contact) to work as a International Crime Co-Coordinator in light of Britain's upcoming withdrawal from the European Union (Brexit)

The NPCC have been asked by the Home Office to provide a short-term Brexit contingency that can be stood up by the 29th March 2019. The International Crime Co-Ordination Centre "Brexit" has been designed to cover the loss of EU tools.

New posts of Regional SPOCs have become available within the contingency response to Brexit. Candidates will have responsibility for a Regional Operational Command Unit (ROCU) area working directly to the Detective Inspector of Operations. Their function will be to work with local forces in the ROCU area to help deliver the key communications and messaging to officers, provide support, measure compliance and uptake contingency solutions.

Intentions are for a number of candidates to start imminently. The recruitment process is designed around a "No Deal" scenario, therefore any changes or outcomes in the political negotiations may influence the structure of this unit accordingly.

-Attending management meetings, liaise daily with Risk/Management/Grip and Pace meetings to understand high risk/high profile cases and mitigate any identified risks.
-Raising concerns to the Central Unit of non-compliance.
-Advising and supporting Regional Force Coordinators, providing resilience to their role.
-Working with Risk Trainers to understand what training gaps exist within UK police forces and providing input to training packages.
-Continually monitoring how UK police forces within their geographical areas perform in their thematic areas. If performance or issues identified by the Regional Force Coordinators, working with UK police forces to raise awareness and rectify relevant issues.
-Identifying opportunities in which the four Coordination Units can improve its service.
-Working with stakeholders, such as the Home Office, NCA, CPS, ACRO and all other operational partners.
-Providing expertise and specialist advice in relation to foreign national offending to key internal and external stakeholders as well as Senior Leaders.
-A good working knowledge of EU law enforcement measures; SISII, EAW, ECRIS, Europol, Eurojust, etc
