The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) is committed to reflect the communities it serves. The diversity of an organisation has a direct impact on the quality of the service we provide to local people.
Each staff member brings valuable skills, experiences and knowledge to the organisation. These are enriched and enhanced by the differences in:
- Disability and Neurodiversity
- Sexual orientation
An inclusive workforce ensures we are able to support the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) in supporting our communities by:
- Employing people from different backgrounds. This gives us a better understanding of the lifestyles, beliefs and cultures of local people living in our communities.
- Employing people who can speak different languages. This means we can communicate more effectively with local people living in our communities.
- Employing people from different communities. This builds trust and increases understanding between the OPCC, the police service and our communities.
We want to encourage people of diverse backgrounds, life experience and beliefs who share our values and are committed to making a difference, to come and work for us. Find out more about current jobs and volunteering opportunities.
