Do you want a new challenge or to develop yourself? Would you like to learn Holmes skills, and be involved in major investigations? Would you like to join a great team of dedicated Investigators?


Applications are invited for PIP level 2 investigator roles within Operation Pandect – Historical Investigation unit, based in both Hartlepool and South Bank Middlesbrough. We are seeking motivated, keen, hard working staff to join the team.


What is Operation Pandect?

Operation Pandect is the overarching name for the investigations being undertaken by the historical investigation unit. The unit is funded by the Home Office, and was set up with a policing special grant to investigate 3 outstanding unsolved murder investigations as well as serious, non recent offences of sexual exploitation under a specific part of Operation Pandect called Operation Dean.


Positions are currently available on Operation Resolute, Operation Ardent and Operation Dean, which are the remaining live enquiries following successful prosecutions in Op Rosa in 2020, and Op Seyton in 2021. Please click here for more information about these operations.



We are seeking conscientious, dedicated and inquiring individuals to ensure a professional investigative and supportive service is delivered to the community.

Duties will include interviewing witnesses and suspects and producing accurate written statements in a form suitable for use as evidence in court proceedings.

The successful candidate will have excellent problem solving, communication and decision making skills. PIP Level 2 accreditation or the recognised equivalent is essential to the role.  Candidates appointed who possess the equivalent qualification must gain the College of Policing PIP 2 accreditation as soon as possible once in post.  This will include attending relevant training and producing a portfolio of evidence.

The role requires the selected individual to work a shift pattern between the hours of Monday to Sunday from 0800 to 1800.

Flexibility will be essential due to the nature and demands of this role. You should expect on occasion to work beyond your normal scheduled working hours and also to travel around the force areas and beyond.
