We can’t disclose explicit details but can tell you we’re leading advancements in emerging technologies to deliver bespoke solutions to niche and specialist areas of the Met. The only way you can appreciate our sophisticated technologies, and how we’re using them to protect the public and fight crime across London, is to see them for yourself.

This is a unique opportunity for an assistant electronics development engineer, 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 our own.

Delivery of our 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 Assistant Electronics Development Engineer, you will be part of the Electronics System Development (ESD) team developing niche electronic solutions to unique business issues.  A key attribute to being successful in the role will be an ability to work closely with Engineers from multiple disciplines. You will provide support to Electronic Development Engineers in their tasks of designing, building/prototyping, testing and evaluating electronic solutions.

Under the guidance of a development engineer, you will work in a team of engineers assisting in producing designs and turning these into fully functional products or systems for operational use in the field.  The work will include some design elements, building, prototyping, manufacture, assembly and exhaustively testing items before deployments and providing accurate test reports. 

The role is varied and on any typical day you may be involved in a number of activities including assisting with software and hardware development projects, assisting with or carrying out electronics design, testing, participating in project meetings, design reviews/workshops and meeting with customers or suppliers as well as helping with all aspects of the support to the ESD team.  You will also carry out the production of parts including the fabrication of PCBs, cables, assemblies etc. and the sourcing components / equipment where required for assembly into larger systems.

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.

Company

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.
