Link not working? You can find the details of all NCA recruitment posts on the Civil Service Jobs website.
There's no such thing as a 'typical' NCA officer. The breadth of our capabilities mean that we recruit people from virtually every walk of life, from police to project management, crime analysis to commercial procurement. Our diversity is one of our greatest strengths.
Some of our roles require particular qualifications - for example, a vacancy for an experienced investigator may require you to have PIP2. Where that's the case the advert will make it clear. For many roles however we're looking for the right skills and qualities you may have developed from life experience as much as your professional background.
There's no upper age limit to becoming an NCA officer, but you must be at least 18 years old. All new starters undergo a health screening as part of pre-employment checks to check that you're fit enough to perform in the role. As long as you're fit enough and have the skills and experience we're looking for then age isn't a barrier.
You must however meet Civil Service nationality standards to join the NCA. We’ll normally only appoint nationals from the UK, Republic of Ireland, the Commonwealth and the European Economic Area. You also should not have spent significant periods of time abroad immediately prior to your applications.
These requirements should be met for all NCA posts. Specific nationality and residency requirements for specialist roles will be listed in the advert.
On occasion we recruit for entry-level investigator and intelligence career pathways. From time to time we also offer student placements. All vacancies will be listed on this page and on the Civil Service Jobs website.
While there isn't an NCA-specific graduate scheme we’re part of the Civil Service Fast Stream for graduates. For details of this please see the Civil Service Fast Stream website.
We also offer placements for Armed Forces personnel facing medical discharge under our Wounded, Injured and Sick Service Personnel (WIS) programme. The WIS scheme, launched in 2010 to provide placements to troops on rehabilitation programmes, helps veterans in the transition from military to civilian life, while providing the NCA with a unique source of acumen and life experience.
If you’re leaving the Armed Forces on medical grounds and are interested in a placement with us speak with your Career Transition Partnership Manager or Commanding Officer.
We have locations all over the country. Some roles have to be based at specific locations whereas others are more flexible.
The best way to see if any roles are in your area is to search for roles at the NCA on the Civil Service Jobs website and filter by location.
Wherever you start out, we commit to developing and supporting all our officers and offer career pathways that maximise potential. An NCA officer can take on many roles in different areas over the course of a career with us.
Throughout your career you’ll have access to the very best training and development - from initial induction to professional development, management skills and specialist training.
As an agency that works from a national to global level, we also offer some unique and interesting opportunities in the law enforcement field.
We’re committed to the principles of equality and diversity, and welcome all applications. Flexible working options are considered, dependent on the duties of the role in question. All appointments are based on merit.
