Independent Members for Joint Police & Crime Commisioner and Chief Constable Audit Committee

Allowances and expenses will be paid.

Are you a person with the highest levels of integrity and accountability?

Can you bring fresh and analytical thinking to two key public service organisations and speak your mind openly? Do you have a strong commitment to public service?

If so, we need people like you to become one of three new Independent Members of our Joint Police & Crime Commissioner and Chief Constable Audit Committee.

As part of this role you will be examining inspection reports, by internal and external auditors, on matters including governance, key systems of control, asset management, people, data management and finance within these two organisations. You will also be directly advising the PCC and Chief on risk management. Therefore, experience and understanding of risk management and audit activity would be particularly valuable.

This vital work will help the Police & Crime Commissioner and Chief Constable of Avon and Somerset Police to adhere to the best governance practices in their roles overseeing policing in our area and discharging their statutory responsibilities.

The committee is an important, independent means of enhancing public trust and confidence in the governance of the office of the Police & Crime Commissioner and Avon and Somerset Police.

You will be required to attend four audit committee meetings a year and you will be provided with expert training and a full induction to the Office of the Police Crime Commissioner and the Constabulary.

We are ambitious in Avon and Somerset to be an outstanding police force that keeps people safe, protects the most vulnerable and successfully addresses a wide range of policing challenges.

We must understand and meet the needs of a diverse range of communities, ranging from the vibrant cities of Bristol and Bath to the rural landscapes of Somerset.
