Have you thought about joining the NCA?
Who are we and what do we do?

Many of you may wish to continue to serve your country and be at the forefront of law enforcement. At the NCA we deal with criminals who pose the biggest threat to the UK public and national security; this could be anything from human trafficking, firearms, drug dealing, or the exploitation of children to money laundering, high-end fraud and corruption.

NCA officers relentlessly pursue the most serious and dangerous offenders and develop and deliver specialist capabilities on behalf of law enforcement and other partners.

There is no such thing as a ‘typical’ NCA officer. The breadth of our capabilities means that we recruit people from virtually every walk of life; from the armed forces to the police and the private sector. Our diversity is one of our greatest strengths. What we all have in common is our dedication and commitment to protecting the public from serious and organised crime.

One of our most recent successes was where the NCA breached and dismantled a leading encrypted communication network – EnCro Chat, allowing us to discover ‘kingpin’ criminals previously thought to be above the law. Our international presence enables us to work with our policing and security partners across borders to relentlessly track down criminals and fugitives.

Why should joining the NCA be your next career move?

The NCA is committed to the Armed Forces Covenance, and even operates a wounded, injured and sick programme aimed at Service personnel who’re currently undergoing rehabilitation and resettlement from the armed forces.

We believe that ex-military candidates offer a unique set of skills and experience that bring diversity to our agency. We take on Service leavers from a variety of backgrounds including engineering, information technology, intelligence, firearms, surveillance and analytics.

We equip our officers with the right skills, workplaces and technology to lead the UK’s response to serious and organised crime. As part of the civil service there are many benefits of working for the NCA, including flexible working patterns and occupational sick pay, as well as a generous annual leave entitlement.

We’re also focused on growing our own talent and take your career development very seriously, enabling you to build a really successful career with the Agency and wider civil service.

Our next round of recruitment activity launches October 2020
