Job Details

Over recent years, a series of terrorist incidents have highlighted the vital role that Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS) play in the fight against terrorism. This has led to significant investment in the sector, bringing with it new opportunities to enhance and expand our capacity and capability to manage the risk posed by terrorist offenders.

The Joint Extremism Unit is now seeking talent to join its new National Counter Terrorism (CT) Communication Controls Centre. Based in the North-East of England, the Centre will become a 'centre of excellence’ for the management of official communications (i.e., visits, telephone calls, mail) relating to terrorist prisoners, providing specialist advice and guidance to staff involved in this work across the wider Service.

As a Communications Hub Business Administrator, in addition to providing activity defined within the Administration Hub roles and responsibilities, you will be responsible for:

  • Coordinating the application for and deployment of communication controls of terrorist prisoners
  • Monitoring terrorist prisoners telephone calls and email/mail
  • Working with cross government agencies to assess the suitability of contact between terrorist prisoners and people or organisations in the community
  • Maintaining accurate and detailed logs to ensure consistent application of powers available to HMPPS under the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act.

We are seeking staff who thrive in a challenging and varied role, who are highly vigilant and have a good attention to detail. Analytical skills and those proficient in the use of IT are desirable as are applications from those with existing experience of monitoring communications. Previous experience is not essential however, as full training will be provided. This is a complex area of work and as such we require individuals who have high levels of integrity with an ability to manage potentially sensitive information.

This role is based at a site in Jarrow where the post-holder will be required to work on a daily basis.
