Chair of Joint Audit Committee

Closing Date: August 4th, 2017

Cambridgeshire Police & Crime Commissioner and Chief Constable – Chair for Joint Audit Committee

Appointment of an Independent Chair

The Police and Crime Commissioner and Chief Constable are seeking an individual with the highest level of integrity and accountability to become Chair of the Joint Audit Committee as an Independent Member.

We want the people of Cambridgeshire to have confidence in their police force and to feel safe. Performance is currently good with overall crime levels continuing to fall and detection rates steadily improving.

The Joint Audit Committee is an important, independent means of enhancing public trust and confidence in the governance of the Office of the Police & Crime Commissioner and Cambridgeshire Constabulary. The purpose of the Committee is to ensure that appropriate risk controls and assurances are in place and to oversee all audit arrangements.

The Chair is responsible for providing leadership to the Joint Audit Committee.

You will be a strategic thinker with the ability to analyse and interpret complex information and then challenge constructively. Experience of leading, conducting or reviewing audit activity is essential. Knowledge of the challenges of local policing and Blue Light collaboration (i.e. emergency services working together) would also be an advantage.

For the Chair – An allowance of £2,600 per year (for additional responsibilities and based on 6 days a year) and expenses will be paid. Income tax and National Insurance will be deductible from all payments. The appointment is for a term of four years.
