Development Officer: Victim and Witness Services 

Salary: £25,000 - £35,000 based on Experience
Fixed Term for 12 months
Based at The Lawns, Cottingham

An opportunity has arisen within the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for a Development Officer: Victim and Witness Services. The role is available as a fixed-term temporary opportunity for 12 months; or as a secondment opportunity to people working within the Criminal Justice or victim and witness support services sector.

You will monitor emerging government guidance and legislation, working with stakeholders on effective information sharing to produce a performance framework. Alongside this, you will research and report to the Police and Crime Commissioner and the Local Criminal Justice Board on how we will deliver the Victim and Witness Services Hub in Humberside, producing a plan that sets out how the programme of change will build up from smarter commissioning in the short term into the longer term vision.

We are looking for someone with the credibility to work effectively with a range of partners, acting as a catalyst for change. You will have strong communication skills and the ability to explain complex concepts to a range of diverse audiences; including members of the public, professional colleagues and heads of services audiences ranging from the general public to executives. You will be familiar with the criminal justice environment and have experience in effectively delivering change. You will be self-motivated and comfortable working without direct supervision to design and implement a plan with limited resources to a tight timescale.

We have a flexible and welcoming environment, encouraging and supporting innovative and agile ways of working with an ethos of being an ‘Employer of Choice’.

We welcome applications to join us for 12 months on a fixed-term basis or from people working within Criminal Justice partner agencies to join us on secondment.
