The Role

Would you like a role which makes a real world impact, protecting children from physical and sexual abuse? The protection of children and vulnerable users has been a fundamental part of Crisp’s mission since the company was formed; we are now looking for a talented and committed individual to lead our Child Protection intelligence production team in Leeds. The successful candidate will lead a team of analysts delivering intelligence on paedophiles, predators and abusers to our social media clients globally.

  • Lead a virtual team operating over international borders.

  • The successful candidate will demonstrate experience of delivery through staff and stakeholders.
  • They will be skilled at translating customer requirements into intelligence outputs.
  • Be a part of the Human Intelligence Leadership Team, ensuring Crisp’s intelligence delivery is seamless across all threat areas and clients. Teamwork is essential.

Essential Experience

  • A degree level qualification or equivalent experience.
  • Significant experience in a related role, or similar experience.

  • Great communicator, able to write pithily and with impact, and able to influence others.
