Are you an accredited Counter Fraud Specialist looking for the next step in your career? Are you passionate about protecting public services from financial crime? If so, a career in Anti-Crime Services with 360 Assurance could be the right fit for you. We have an exciting opportunity for an ambitious individual to join our team.

This post is for a permanent position (we also have a fixed term 6 month contract advertised, if you are interested in a fixed term position please have a look at advert 313-A-21-95999-MA).

360 Assurance is an award-winning NHS service, hosted by Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust, providing counter fraud and security management services to NHS clients in South Yorkshire and the East Midlands.

As an accredited counter fraud specialist, you will work within a team that provides counter fraud support to a wide spectrum of NHS organisations, using your knowledge and experience across a range of topics including investigations, proactive exercises, fraud awareness training and human resources.

The role will see you:

  • Add value to the NHS: Preventing, detecting and investigating fraud, helping to assess a clients exposure to fraud risk, providing evidence-based feedback through reports and exercises and face to face presentations. Proposing practical solutions to support busy organisations as they seek to perform to the highest standards possible.
  • Take responsibility: Act as a nominated lead counter fraud specialist for named organisations, dealing directly with senior executives and non-executives to protect their organisations against fraud, bribery and corruption.
  • Work as part of a team: Work together with a multi-disciplinary team to deliver high quality investigation services for NHS clients.
  • Develop New Skills: While the post holder will primarily be involved in delivery of counter fraud services, there are opportunities to get involved in other aspects of our organisation’s work such as violence reduction training or HR disciplinary investigations.

Good verbal and written communication skills are essential, as are confidence and self-discipline. The post holder will be responsible for dealing directly with client executive and non-executive leaders and so candidates will be required to build strong relationships with colleagues and clients and be able to work on their own or as part of a team. The candidate will be able to adapt and prioritise as workload requires and will ensure timely delivery of high-quality investigations.

360 Assurance operates within the East Midlands and South Yorkshire with offices across these areas. Although based at one location, travel across the client base will be expected. We also operate a flexible working policy that includes the opportunity to work from home as and when appropriate to do so.

You will need to be a car driver to enable travel between NHS and other locations across the East Midlands and South Yorkshire (use of public transport is unlikely to be practical for this post).

For an informal discussion, please contact Craig Bevan-Davies, Assistant Director Anti-Crime Services, on 07785 445905 or Matt Curtis, Anti-Crime Team Manager, on 07920 138329.

We are committed to providing the best care that we can to our patients, and so some of our roles involve a Maths and English assessment. Where this is so, details will be shared with you as part of the recruitment process.

Details of our benefits, pledge and other important information about the application process, and working for us is contained in the documents linked to our advert.

For areas where our teams work to staffing rosters, rosters are set in advance at a team level and you will be joining an established roster. Your rostered shifts will be confirmed to you when arranging your start date. We will consider requests to vary working patterns in line with our flexible working policy.

To make the most of your application, we may consider successful applicants for vacancies for the same post in different locations where this is appropriate and meets our mutual requirements.

For all substantive roles the appointment of every new member of staff (excluding medical and dental staff) to a post is subject to a 6 month probationary period, details of which are in our Probation Policy.

We aim to develop a workforce that reflects our service users. To this end we actively implement equal opportunities in employment and service delivery and seek people who share our commitment. We strongly encourage applications from all sections of the community, particularly from underrepresented groups, including members of our black and minority ethnic communities. All jobs will require permission to work in the UK.

For all jobs the cost of undertaking a DBS disclosure at the required level will be met by the individual. This will be deducted from salary following commencement.

Requests from applicants to work alternative hours to those advertised may be considered.

Applicants who are currently ‘at risk’ within the local NHS, and meeting essential criteria will be given preference for interview over any other candidates who may apply for this post.
