Are you an experienced Chief Executive Officer with a strong sense of civic duty?

Are you passionate about the importance of accountability, fairness and equality in policing and criminal justice services?

Come and join us and you could play a vital role in an organisation that provides a voice, on these key issues, to people living and working in our area.

The opportunity has arisen for an Interim Chief Executive Officer within Avon and Somerset’s Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) based in Portishead.

The OPCC, and its elected commissioner, sets the strategy for policing in the area, oversees governance of the police service, commissions victim support services and co-ordinates innovative change projects across criminal justice partner agencies. 

This exciting and varied role will involve:

  • Supporting and advising the Commissioner, and leading the team, in effective delivery of key priorities in the Police & Crime Plan.
  • Leading the OPCC team through PCC election in May 2020
  • Overseeing engagement strategy across the organisation.
  • Facilitating effective and appropriate scrutiny of the police force. 
  • Being the statutory monitoring officer of the elected Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC).


You will be a dynamic, confident, leader who is not afraid to challenge and takes an analytical and problem solving approach to complex issues.

You will be used to a demanding workload, and have a successful track record of managing multiple work streams, people, resources and a busy schedule - which may require working flexible hours (including some evenings).

You will be adept at managing and maintaining essential relationships with key stakeholders at high levels across all public sector agencies and local, as well as central, government.

You will have strong influencing and advocacy skills and an abundance of experience in corporate governance strategy and legislation in the setting of a large and complex organisation.

You must be a person with the highest levels of integrity and the ability to make objective decisions in the public interest.

If this sounds like you, and you relish a challenge, then we’d like to hear from you.
