Criminality involved in the organised exploitation of the vulnerable continues to evolve, and in some cases, thrive. Significant work is already being undertaken by UK law enforcement to tackle organised exploitation such as county lines, human trafficking, modern slavery, child sexual exploitation, and child sexual abuse; however, this landscape is complex, and requires a sophisticated solution.

The TOEX Programme, a national project between the NPCC and NCA, aims to enhance the local, regional and national response to organised exploitation, as part of a whole systems approach. The programme will deliver this by improving regional intelligence, to inform operational tasking, coordination and capability development; and prioritising limited resources on the highest-harm threats.  This will enable more coherent and joined-up law enforcement activity with an evidence-based approach to activity across the 4Ps – protect, pursue, prevent, and prepare.

Grant funded to the 31st March 2022, the TOEX Data Technician vacancies represent a unique opportunity to join a cutting-edge programme, which will deliver a first of its kind, in the form of a threat neutral intelligence and performance framework that stretches across all types of organised exploitation. The successful candidates will have a personal development plan, which will build on their current knowledge and skills – and provide a clear learning pathway to realise their full potential.
