UK advertising for crypto crime-fighting role at $50K salary

UK seeks crypto crime-fighter with $50K salary

The National Crime Agency (NCA) in the United Kingdom is seeking to hire a cryptocurrency investigator to join its National Cyber Crime Unit (NCCU) Crypto Cell.

The dedicated unit will focus on investigating UK cyber incidents involving cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin.

The investigator will be responsible for providing strategic and tactical advice to investigators handling cases involving cryptocurrencies, as well as identifying and recovering seed phrases and conducting advanced tracing through blockchains.

The position requires knowledge of cryptocurrencies and experience with blockchain forensic investigations in serious and organized crime cases.

The annual salary for the role is between £40,200 ($48,200) and £43,705 ($52,400), and applications will be accepted until January 10, 2023.

The NCA’s efforts to increase regulatory focus on cryptocurrencies in the UK come as the government works to eliminate “dirty money” in the country and introduced a bill in September 2022 to crack down on money laundering and fraud, including expanding authorities’ ability to seize illicitly-used cryptocurrencies.
