Part Time


The Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland and the Chief Constable (CC) are looking for members of the public with a good understanding and experience of public sector legislation and guidance, who are politically neutral, to sit as independent members of the Joint Audit, Risk and Assurance Panel (JARAP). They are looking to appoint two new JARAP members for (up to) a four-year period to March 2025.

The JARAP is an important, independent means of enhancing public trust and confidence in the governance of the Office of the Police & Crime Commissioner and Leicestershire Police. The purpose of the panel is to provide the independent scrutiny of risk management, performance management, and financial management and governance arrangements. Also, to oversee all audit arrangements, the reviewing of financial statements and ensuring that appropriate risk controls and assurances are in place.

To be successful in this role, you will already have knowledge or interest in local community issues and will be able to demonstrate previous experience in a local or community leadership role. You will be passionate about wanting to make an impact for local residence and will use your enquiring and inquisitive nature to ask questions to gain a clear insight, which will then allow you to stimulate debate and positive change as part of the panel.

You will have excellent communication skills and be confident in speaking up and actively participating in meetings, alongside an ability to examine evidence and complex documentation. In this role it is also essential that you are able to take an independent and unbiased view and maintain the highest level of integrity, accountability and honesty in the actions you take.

Candidates are required to be over the age of 18, live or work in the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland area and be able to attend meetings at Leicestershire Police Headquarters during the working day (currently appropriate Covid 19 related remote procedures apply). The Panel Members will be subject to a police vetting check. Serving police officers or police staff are not eligible for this role.

The successful applicants will receive training, be paid an annual allowance and able to claim reasonable expenses. The current schedule is based on six meetings each year.

At Leicestershire Office of the Police and Crime Commissioners and the Leicestershire Police we are committed to better reflecting the communities that we serve. We encourage applications from our under represented communities including all ethnic or religious backgrounds, LGBTQ+, women and those with disabilities.
