Chief Constable – Cambridgeshire Constabulary

Closing Date: May 18th, 2023

Cambridgeshire Constabulary is looking for a new Chief Constable who can provide inspirational and innovative leadership to staff and officers across the organisation.

If the following attributes describe you then we want to hear from you:

  • Are you an exemplary inspirational Chief or Deputy Officer who has vision and determination to deliver against the Police and Crime Plan?
  • Does your leadership style include a focus on people and integrity?
  • Do you prioritise listening and responding to the public?
  • Do you have a proven track record of fighting crime and crime prevention?

As Chief Constable of Cambridgeshire Constabulary you will be both a leader and a role model. You will bring your strong personal values of integrity, transparency, impartiality, and commitment to public service to the role. You will have the passion and purpose to inspire officers and staff of today and tomorrow.

It is essential that you have a strong commitment to the values of integrity, fairness and respect. Public confidence in the integrity of UK policing is low with communities losing trust as a result of some recent and high-profile cases. It will be your responsibility as Chief Constable to ensure Cambridgeshire’s officers and staff adopt the highest ethical standards.

A significant part of the role will be an ability to ensure/deliver successful collaborative working with the Police and Crime Commissioner and other external partners, so strong communication skills and media experience are essential.

As Chief Constable you will set the strategic vision for the Constabulary based on a strong analytical understanding of performance data.

All this is needed to ensure the Constabulary is a force that is trusted – one that we can all be proud of.

This is a first-class opportunity for existing Chief Constables and Deputy Chief Constables to make a difference to the communities of Cambridgeshire.

An Information Pack and Application Form can be obtained by emailing Matilda Henry (

There is also an opportunity to visit Cambridgeshire Constabulary Headquarters in Hinchingbrooke, Huntingdon, or have an informal conversation with the Police and Crime Commissioner, or his Chief Executive, before applying. Please enquire with the contact above.

The closing date for applications is 17:00 on Tuesday 23rd May 2023.
