Financial Investigator - SW ROCU Criminal Finances Team x 4

Criminal Finances Team is a multi agency partnership leading on major money laundering investigations and maximising asset recovery opportunities against organised crime groups.

 Your role will include planning and preparation of financial investigations including confiscation investigations under POCA, presenting case material including financial statements and attending court if necessary. You will be required to investigate money laundering disclosures made by financial institutions under the relevant acts and provide guidance and support to the SW ROCU in all matters relating to financial investigation.

 Although it is not essential to be a trained financial investigator with accredited powers of part 2,5,8 under POCA to apply for this post, it would be advantageous.  There will be a requirement to work towards this accreditation once in role if not already accredited.

 Experience of interviewing to obtain information in an inquisitive but tactful manner and good communication skills to present the information in an objective, impartial style is essential to the role.

 The SW ROCU was established in September 2010 to disrupt serious and organised crime across the South West of England. It is made up of the five forces in the region – Avon and Somerset, Devon and Cornwall, Dorset, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire – to work across the county borders. It brings together the capability and funding to gather intelligence, crack serious and organised crime networks and seize the assets of the criminals involved.

 The ROCU consists of 12 capabilities: Regional Integrated Confidential Unit, Criminal Finances Team (including Fraud Team and Asset Confiscation Team), Operations Team, Cyber Crime Unit, Prison Intelligence Unit, Protected Persons Service, GAIN, OPSY, Technical Surveillance Unit and the Regional Undercover Unit. In addition to this, the ROCU also hosts the following fixed term Police Transformation Funded capabilities: Regional Child Sexual Exploitation, Regional Modern Slavery, Regional Organised Crime Threat Assessment (ROCTA), Assisting Offenders and Disruptions Team.

 The ROCU also works in close partnership with the National Crime Agency (NCA), Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC), United Kingdom Border Force (UKBF), the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) and the HM Prisons and Probation Service (HMPPS).
