Encouraging a greater diversity of candidates for directly elected roles is the vision behind a new scheme inviting local people to follow Sue Mountstevens in her role as Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC).
Ms Mountstevens is offering local people the opportunity to shadow her, to give a better insight into the role as the area’s elected PCC.
The scheme is open to all but it is hoped that under-represented groups – women, BME, LGBT and disability – will consider applying to ensure greater representation from across the communities of Avon and Somerset.
If you are interested in the PCC’s Shadowing Scheme, you need to be aged 18 years and over, you must not have ever been convicted of an imprisonable offence and have lived or worked in the Avon and Somerset area for at least three years.
