Counter Fraud Officer

Job Description

Would you like to help HM Land Registry (HMLR) deliver its ambitious new Counter Fraud Strategy – which will play a fundamental role in protecting the Land Register, a key part of the national economic infrastructure?

This is an exciting opportunity available in Gloucester, with a minimum requirement of 26 hours per week for part time hours up to full time hours of 37 hours per week.

Whilst HM Land Registry are in the process of developing a hybrid working culture, allowing employees to work both in a home and office environment, whilst meeting customer and organisational needs, there can be no guarantee that hybrid working will be available within CFG in the long term. The successful candidate will have an opportunity to realise any of these benefits, although initial induction into the role and training will require 100% face to face attendance in Gloucester. Induction is planned over a period of 6 months (extendable where required) and the degree of office attendance required will be reviewed over the course of this and may be amended based upon individual progress.

Some travel and overnight stays may be required to other HM Land Registry offices for internal meetings or training subject to current government guidance, and this should be taken into account when applying.

HMLR ensures people’s land and property rights are guaranteed and protected in one of the most active property markets in the world. As part of our highly regarded Counter Fraud Group (CFG) you could be contributing to this important and exciting work every day, operating against the ever-evolving, ever-changing fraud threat HMLR faces.

Counter Fraud Group plays a critical part in protecting the integrity of the register and undertakes an important role in the HMLR counter fraud strategy. The role involves cross departmental working, assessment of fraud risk and identification of risk controls, analysis of data and a need to understand fraud related issues.

The successful candidate will be able to analyse and evaluate data from various designated sources and produce appropriate outcomes to defend against fraud or illegality. You will deliver and assist in the development of counter-fraud policy and strategy within HMLR and to further the counter fraud strategy. You will work towards a relevant counter-fraud qualification and develop yourself against Government Counter Fraud Standards.


• 2 GCSE’s in Mathematics and English Language at Grade C/Level 4 or above or an equivalent qualification (O-Level at Grade C or above, CSE at Grade 1)


We'll assess you against these behaviours during the selection process:

  • Working Together
  • Making Effective Decisions
  • Managing a Quality Service

HM Land Registry offers competitive terms, conditions and benefits. We actively encourage career progression, training and development. You will have access to Civil Service pension and benefits arrangements, as well as flexible working – exactly what you would expect from a progressive employer such as the Civil Service.
