Do you want to influence positive change within Wiltshire and Swindon? Have you got experience of working with a wide range of partners and the public?
Angus Macpherson, Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Wiltshire and Swindon, is recruiting a Deputy PCC to provide strategic advice and insight on a wide range of topics and support him in engaging and consulting with the public.
This is an excellent opportunity for someone with senior experience in governance, who understands the challenges within policing and the criminal justice system.
Mr Macpherson said: "Since the introduction of PCCs in 2012 the role and responsibilities have been greatly expanded by the Government.
"I agree with the idea of giving local communities more say over policing and the justice system and it is crucial that I hear back from the public.
"I am committed to stepping up engagement and there simply aren't enough hours in the day for me to meet the communities I represent.
"The estimated population of Wiltshire and Swindon now exceeds 700,000 and it takes seven MPs to represent the people who live here.
"To ensure the public are getting the very best service and have more interaction with my office I have decided that the time is right to appoint a Deputy PCC."
The successful applicant will work 14 hours a week and will be paid £18,000 pa. It will be a fixed term contract until the next PCC elections in May 2020.
Candidates are expected to share Angus Macpherson's vision and values for successful policing and criminal justice.
Sixteen of the 41 PCCs in England and Wales currently have deputies. The mayors of London and Greater Manchester each have a Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime.
