The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner
Commissioning and Policy Officer
£35,484 – £39,585 depending on experience
Maternity cover, one year fixed term contract or secondment, full time
The Police & Crime Commissioner (PCC) has wide ranging responsibilities for setting the priorities and budget of the Constabulary, holding the Chief Constable to account for delivery of the Police and Crime Plan. The PCC also has wider responsibilities across criminal justice and community safety and commissions a wide range of services for both victims and offenders in order to support delivery of the Plan.
The focus of the Commissioning and Policy Officer will be on serious violence, in particular leading and supporting the work of the violence reduction units across Avon and Somerset. Both these roles involve building strong working relationships with senior colleagues to develop effective multi-agency solutions. As such previous experience of working in this way and delivering positive outcomes would be desirable.
Educated to degree level or equivalent, you ideally will have experience in commissioning, scrutiny work, developing initiatives, preparation of briefing documents and strategic partnership working. Confident, innovative and flexible, you will have excellent communication skills.
The OPCC has a strong focus on employing people that best fit with the ethos and culture of our team and are looking for someone that will embrace our values of Openness, Partnership, Compassion and Courage.
If this sounds like you, and you relish a challenge, then we’d like to hear from you.
