Closing Date: April 16th, 2015

Location: Cambourne (with regular travel across Cambridgeshire)

Full time, 18 month contract

Salary Scale £21,780 – £23,790

Closing date: 16 April 2015

Do you think you have what it takes to help improve local accountability of Cambridgeshire Police to the public? Do you want to make a positive impact on community safety in your area through the use of voluntary organisations and others? Are you interested in a challenging, responsible and public-facing role?

If you are a proactive, highly organised team player with excellent written and verbal communication skills who is able to multi-task, then the Office of the Cambridgeshire Police and Crime Commissioner would like to hear from you.

Cambridgeshire Police and Crime Commissioner Sir Graham Bright is looking for a committed individual to join his busy team in the role of Outreach Worker for the areas of Peterborough and Fenland. The Commissioner’s role is to work with police and partners to ensure they effectively tackle the local crime and disorder which affects each neighbourhood and matters most to the people who live and work there.

One of the core responsibilities of this role is to listen to the public as individuals and collectively, such as parish councils, and to work in partnership with local agencies and voluntary organisations to identify and deliver shared solutions to local crime and anti-social behaviour problems in priority areas.

The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner is based in Cambourne, but as Outreach Worker most of your time will be spent meeting people across Peterborough and Fenland. The successful candidate will be self-motivated. Working hours are standard office hours (9 until 5, Monday to Friday) but a flexible working scheme is operated. There will be a requirement for some evening/ weekend work.
