Seeing is believing. And that’s the only way you’ll really get to know about our sophisticated technologies and how we’re using them to fight crime in the capital. We don’t say much, for obvious reasons, but suffice to say that we’re leading advancements in emerging technologies to deliver bespoke electronic and ICT solutions in specialist areas to make London safer.

This is an outstanding opportunity for an experienced Electronics Development Manager, with hands on electronic experience, who wants to really develop and progress their engineering skills, working in an exciting engineering and science environment, offering excellent employee benefits and delivering operational technology solutions to make London safer.

The Technology, Research and Innovation (TRI) team keeps the Met at the cutting-edge of tech. Its 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.

Delivery of these solutions involves the complete lifecycle from developing requirements with customers, producing design solutions and turning these designs into a fully functional product or system for operational use.

As an Electronics Development Manager, you will be part of the Electronics System Development (ESD) team who develop niche electronic solutions to unique business issues. You will provide day to day hands on leadership and mentoring to an Electronics Development Team, in the laboratory, to enable them to effectively deliver bespoke electronic products and systems fit for operational use in the field. This will involve the role holder using all of their hands-on electronics development and engineering skills to effectively steer and manage the team in the laboratory, to successfully deliver solutions on time to meet operational deadlines.

Working closely with a team of Development Engineers and Assistant Development Engineers, the Electronics Development Manager shall be responsible for developing requirements and managing the team to deliver robust solutions. The work will include the management of full lifecycle electronic design from concept all the way through to fully functional products or systems for operational use in the field, including support and when necessary, to end of life. The role holder will also be responsible for producing design and project plans, project documentation, managing external manufacturers and providing hands-on expert assistance to the team.

The role holder may also be offered the opportunity to participate in occasional operational or field work alongside operational colleagues and officers.

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.
