Merseyside’s Police Commissioner, Jane Kennedy, is seeking to recruit an experienced Chief Executive to work alongside her to ensure that her strategies, vision and priorities are realised, and that her duties and responsibilities are carried out effectively and efficiently.
The Chief Executive will also act as the Monitoring Officer, with responsibility for the legal decisions of the Commissioner.
This is an exciting opportunity to help the Commissioner shape and implement her strategic vision for policing and to ensure that the police services provided are reflective of the needs of the communities who live, work and visit Merseyside.
You will be a strategic thinker who will be able to develop effective and dynamic working relationships both internally within the police service and externally with other key policing and community safety partners.
Reporting to the Commissioner, you will provide oversight and scrutiny in all matters relating to the police’s strategic and financial performance, the delivery of the Commissioner’s Police and Crime Plan and the commissioning of services. You will also assist the Commissioner in holding the Chief Constable to account.
