“To find the right person we are willing to look beyond the conventional.”
In his Police and Crime Plan, Rupert Matthews, the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland clearly sets out his ambitions for policing and community safety in the region. To help make those ambitions a reality, he is seeking a highly motivated Chief Executive who shares those ambitions to join and lead his team.
As well as leading a team of 23, and overseeing the Office budget of just over £6m, the Chief Executive will relish working closely with the Chief Constable and his team, partners, local authorities, charities and the third sector across the region.
This is a vital role, helping the PCC to hold the Chief Constable and the Police Service to account for the use of its c.£236m budget.
To succeed, you will need to be politically astute, and someone who can establish and build strong relationships, and team spirit, within the Office of the PCC and beyond. Someone who will nurture team members, allowing them to maximise their potential. Someone who will also deliver on the implementation of the Police and Crime Plan.
You will have significant experience operating at a comparable leadership level, with high levels of integrity. The role offers an opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of other people, providing stimulating professional interest and challenge.
