We are looking for a full time (working hours can be negotiated) Quality and Performance Officer to be part of the busy Quality Team, which is led by the Quality and Performance Manager. The whole team is fully integrated across all forensic accreditations within Thames Valley Police but this particular role will primarily focus on the CTPSE Forensics.
The role holder will support the Quality and Performance Supervisor in the implementation of Quality Standards across all forensic services within Thames Valley Police, South East Region Organised Crime Unit (SEROCU), and in particular Counter Terrorism Policing South East (CTPSE), and in line with national Forensic Regulation will seek improvements to service delivery where possible. In addition, when directed, the role holder will maintain, audit, and review procedures within accredited Units to ensure compliance with the accreditation Standards, acting on and resolving any non-conformances.
The successful candidate will have previous experience of working within an ISO accredited environment, for example ISO17025, ISO17020, ideally having led internal audits, have proven experience in the preparation and delivery of training, and be able to build effective working relationships at all levels.
