Chief Executive and Monitoring Officer

Closing Date: January 18th, 2021

This is a particularly exciting yet challenging time to join the Cambridgeshire Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC).

That is why we are seeking an exemplary and inspirational Chief Executive and Monitoring Officer whose personal qualities are just as important as their senior leadership experience.   As an exceptional leader you will be at the forefront of inspiring, influencing and enabling others to deliver their work, whether this is those within the OPCC or our partners locally, regionally or nationally.

We have elections for Police and Crime Commissioners coming up in 2021 and a new Police and Crime Plan to deliver. Equally, in the face of economic and social pressures there are challenges and difficult decisions to be made by the Police and Crime Commissioner, Cambridgeshire Constabulary, and our partners.   This means there is lots to be done now and in the future.

A key part of your role will be to advise and support the Police and Crime Commissioner on strategic governance and oversight in order to hold the Chief Constable to account for ensuring the Constabulary are working in the most effective and efficient way.

Your drive and determination to be a system leader, playing an active role working across a number of agendas at any one time, means you will need to see the bigger picture.   Using your negotiating and influencing skills you will build strong and wide-ranging relationships to work collaboratively with partners to achieve outcomes.

As Monitoring Officer, you will have an eye for the finer detail, ensuring statutory processes, procedures and governance requirements are in place to ensure openness, accountability, integrity and public confidence.

As no two days are the same in the OPCC you will need personal resilience and the ability to flex, adapt and work at pace whilst providing clear direction and certainty in decision making. You will be a role model to OPCC staff promoting a ‘one team approach’ and a culture of empowerment and enablement, whilst at the same ensuring their professionalism in the work they do in support of the Commissioner.

If you believe you have the qualities, skills and experience we are looking for then we would like to hear from you.
