Could you create the latest crime-fighting technology?
As the challenge of fighting crime becomes increasingly complex, we’re turning to technology to give us a new edge. Our Technology, Research & Innovation team comes up with advanced technology to help our officers – and you can be at the heart of pioneering projects that help keep London safe.
From bespoke electronic communications systems to miniaturised solutions, our team creates innovative ideas to solve complex policing problems. You’ll be part of the Electronic Systems Development team, where you’ll tackle the entire project lifecycle: concept, development, prototyping, manufacture, assembly and test. It’s all about understanding what our officers need and coming up with brilliant, workable ideas. This could involve modifying existing technology or creating it from scratch. Either way, you’ll have a varied, hands-on role that could involve software and hardware development, project meetings and design reviews. You may even have the chance to join Met officers out into the field. You’ll certainly be working both independently and in project teams, so you’ll need to be comfortable collaborating and working on your own.
An experienced professional, you’ll have an HNC/HND or OCN/OND in Electronic or Electrical Engineering. Ideally, your expertise covers at least some of the following:
- General electronics
- Embedded systems including hardware and software
- Audio, communication and RF systems
- Schematic capture and PCB design
- Manufacturing techniques
With the people skills to work with suppliers, internal customers and our technical teams, you’ll thrive on the opportunity to innovate for our city.

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.
