Vacancy - Senior Policy Officer

Senior Policy Officer for

The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC), Humberside

Salary: Band C – starting salary £33k rising to £38,500

Based at The Lawns, Cottingham (agile working available)

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 Ambition, Brave, Connecting, Compassion and Trust.  We are looking for a dynamic officer with a ‘can do’ approach to provide an efficient and effective range of policy support services and resilience to the Chief Executive and leadership team. You will be dealing with a broad scope of work, spinning many plates, working to conflicting deadlines, looking for opportunities we can take to improve further.  This will be a demanding role but your work will provide the opportunity for making a difference to the safety of our community. You will also have the opportunity to join a great team with a wide range of benefits.

Whilst it would be great to have someone that knows who we are and what we do, who we work with, it isn’t our greatest requirement.  We want the right person.  We can easily give you the context of our working environment. We need the right skillset and values. That is our priority. We do need someone to be professionally astute, an ambassador for the OPCC in working with a broad range of stakeholders, confident in their abilities, able to understand complex information and summarise this succinctly in briefing reports, be IT savvy and able to demonstrate that you can pick up new systems quickly to make best use of our performance and risk management platform. Any experience of working in a statutory environment would be advantageous, particularly in understanding the criminal justice / community safety landscape. Undertaking research, scoping and horizon scanning would be a principle part of the role and any evidence of experience in this area would be useful.

You will work direct to the Head of Assurance and Statutory Duties but much of your work will be in supporting the Chief Executive. If you are interested in this challenging and exciting role, you can get further information by contacting the Head of Assurance and Statutory Duties for an informal conversation. Paul Wainwright –  

Should you wish to apply you can do so through sending a cover letter and CV indicating what you think you could bring to the role and how you meet the requirements of the role profile for the attention of Paul Wainwright by email using the address above.  You should also complete the Monitoring Questionnaire and submit with your application.

The closing date for this vacancy is Sunday 9th May 2021 midnight.

All posts of the OPCC require staff to operate as ‘politically restricted’ and are subject to police vetting.
