Seeing is believing. And that’s the only way you’ll really get to know about our sophisticated technologies and how they’re helping to fight crime in the capital. We can’t say much, for obvious reasons, but suffice to say that we’re leading advancements in emerging technologies to deliver bespoke ICT and electronic solutions in specialist areas such as biometrics, imaging, communications and secure systems. You can be at the heart of these innovations as a Senior Project Manager.

Technology, Research and Innovation (TRI) is responsible for keeping the Metropolitan Police Service at the forefront of new and emerging technologies. The team’s work is highly innovative and no two projects are ever the same. Some initiatives involve undertaking research with academia or exploring new off-the-shelf technologies. Others involve modifying commercially available products, or creating a whole new solution from scratch.

As a Senior Project Manager, you’ll be delivering these innovative solutions for specialist and sensitive parts of the MPS and Counter Terrorism network using trusted suppliers and TRI engineers. Many of the projects are high value and high impact.

Delivery of solutions involves the complete lifecycle, from developing requirements with customers and producing design solutions, to creating a fully functional product or system for operational use. Running multiple projects in parallel, you’ll act as the focal point for project management in TRI.

In all cases you should expect to work in an environment of considerable complexity and sensitivity, managing high-profile stakeholders with conflicting priorities. That calls for proven experience of managing programmes of large-scale tech projects at a senior level. With an HND/HNC (minimum) in IT or a related discipline, you’ll have the necessary technical expertise. You’ll marry this knowledge with excellent communication skills, so you can work with a range of contacts. And, as an experienced team leader, you’ll inspire others to deliver.

Discover a fascinating role that’s essential to the success of the Met. As part of our team, you can expect a range of benefits plus excellent training and the chance to develop.

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.
