You can expect to work alongside a number of similar professionals in a busy environment. You will be required to have a flexible approach as you will be required to travel outside the Force area on occasions. You will generally be required to work office hours 37 hours per week Monday to Friday. There will be regular occasions where you will be required to work later and occasionally at weekends.  You will also be required to form part of an on-call rota.

•             Interview.

This is a demanding, exciting job which is challenging but also very rewarding.

You must be a British citizen to work for the West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit. If you hold dual nationality, one component of which is British, you may also be considered. However, if successful, you may be asked to relinquish your non‐British nationality (and any entitlement you may have to a foreign nationality) as a condition of your confirmation of appointment with WMCTU. One of your parents should also be British or have substantial ties to the UK. In the latter instance; substantial ties means that your parent is a citizen of a British Overseas Territory, a Commonwealth citizen, US citizen, EEA citizen, British national or citizen overseas, and they would need to have demonstrable connections with the UK by way of family history or have been resident here for a substantial period of time.”

If you're already married to, or cohabiting with, a person who isn't a British citizen, you may still be eligible for employment at the discretion of the Department. You should note however, that marriage to, or cohabitation with, a person who isn't a British citizen after appointment may, in some circumstances, result in the withdrawal of security clearance and subsequent transfer to another Department, or (if this is not possible or the officer does not wish to transfer) dismissal. Each case will be considered on its merits, taking into account the ties between the person involved and the United Kingdom.

The role will be based at a location close to the NEC.
