Use your engineering skills to help us protect London

Engineers are becoming ever-more crucial to the Met’s everyday work. They help frontline officers by providing everything from recording and video equipment to communication systems and data storage. We now need a reliable Communications & Electronics Officer for our Engineering Infrastructure & Operational Support (EIOS) team. Join us in an incredibly varied role that can take you out of the workshop and into Met operations.

This is a chance to work across several engineering subjects and really use your initiative. Your task will be to provide the technology officers need in their work every day. You’ll use your expertise to create the best possible solutions and also lead and improve a key technical area, including purchasing processes, and maintenance and support.

We’re looking for working knowledge of at least some of the following subjects:

  • Cisco networking
  • IT software and hardware
  • Video and audio standards and compression techniques
  • Video and audio recording including NVRs and mass storage of data
  • Video monitoring systems
  • Transmission systems including frequency spectrum
  • Modulation methods
  • Antennas
  • IP radio
  • Mobile phone networks (2G, 3G, 4G)
  • BT services
  • Optical fibre
  • GPS
  • Electrical and electronic principles.

You’ll also bring an HNC or degree (or equivalent) in a relevant Engineering subject. Along with this technical expertise, you’ll have true team spirit and understand the importance of your work. And as you may be needed on operations, you must have a flexible approach to hours and be willing to join an on-call rota.

To apply, please visit our website by clicking on the Apply button below, to download a role specific information pack. Applications will be via a detailed CV, Personal Statement and online application form.

Completed applications must be returned by 29th November 2019.

We view diversity as fundamental to our success. To tackle today’s complex policing challenges, we need a workforce made up from all of London’s communities. Applications from across the community are therefore essential.

As a Disability Confident Committed Employer the Met have committed to ensuring that disabled people and those with long term health conditions have the opportunities to fulfil their potential and realise their aspirations.


London covers 620 square miles and is home to millions of people speaking over 300 different languages. In this most vibrant and complex of cities, this presents an ever-evolving challenge for the Met when fighting to reduce crime - and the fear of crime.

Forging close relationships, building trust and understanding the issues within London’s different communities all form part of the fundamental platform on which effective, credible policing is built.

As a result, we must continue to recruit the brightest and the best people from every background and use the full spectrum of their skills, knowledge and experience to make London safer for everybody.
