Use your skills to keep the country safe

It’s as important as ever that the UK is protected from evolving terrorist threats. As a NaCTSO (National Counter Terrorism Security Office) Advisor, you’ll play a crucial part in keeping the country safe. Your main task will be to develop vital security products and policies to help safeguard key sites. Join our dedicated team and make your skills count.


As part of a specialist team within CTPHQ (Counter Terrorism Policing Headquarters), you’ll shape protective security for key areas such as weapons of terrorism. You’ll work closely with government departments, the policing network and emergency services to set and deliver CT policy, representing NaCTSO on working groups and committees.

You’ll also deliver training and quality assurance for the UK national network of Counter Terrorism Security Advisors (CTSA) and Counter Terrorism Awareness Advisors (CTAA). With your leadership, they’ll offer consistent, specialist CT security guidance to sites across the UK.

Meanwhile, you’ll be supporting the National Co-ordinator for Protect and Prepare (NCPP), managing national workstreams and ensuring the public NaCTSO website delivers guidance as effectively as possible. It’s a role that may involve extensive travel within the UK and occasionally abroad.

To join us at this level, you’ll need experience in protective security, counter terrorism, CBRN or scientific threats research and you will be used to researching and formulating policy and creating high quality presentations and reports. If you’re an accredited Counter Terrorist Security Advisor (CTSA) or have practical experience of protective security within CBRNE threat, we’d definitely like to hear from you.
