‘New and exciting opportunities have arisen for officers with a passion for public service to provide independent and impartial advice to the Police and Crime Commissioner in support of a safer South Yorkshire’
The Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) is a directly elected official, accountable to the public of South Yorkshire for the delivery of efficient and effective policing and crime services.
He has a duty to involve and engage the public, and wider stakeholders, so that their views can be considered and fed into the design and delivery of services that support a safer South Yorkshire.
The PCC sets out the policing and crime priorities in his Police and Crime Plan and then determines the budget and level of council tax policing precept required to deliver that Plan. He is also responsible for commissioning victims’ services.
New roles have been created in the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner to work closely with the Force, partners, key stakeholders and other service providers to help the PCC fulfil his role and responsibilities.
The Senior Commissioning and Contracts Officer will be focussed on helping the PCC deliver the Police and Crime Plan priorities by commissioning and contract managing the various external organisations and service providers with which the PCC has contracts or grant funding arrangements.
In addition to this, you will be involved in providing information, advice and recommendations on emerging service requirements, identifying funding opportunities and developing collaborative approaches with geographic and / or thematic partners in order to deliver the best services to the people of South Yorkshire.
If you feel you have the passion and ambition to help build a safer South Yorkshire, and have the resilience necessary to work in a fast and ever-changing environment, then this could be a fantastic opportunity for you.
