The post holder will be expected to represent RBG within wider London Trading Standards groups. Experience in conducting complex investigations (including e-crime) is essential, along with an understanding of the importance of intelligence in a modern service and the ability to work as part of a team. This role will also give you the opportunity to be involved in other aspects of Trading Standards work on a day to day basis. The Royal Borough of Greenwich is a diverse and exciting place to work and the team are well regarded for making a real difference to the community and our legitimate business.
