Knowledge and Good Practice Manager – APCC

Association of Police and Crime Commissioners

Closing date: 20 April 2021


A unique opportunity has come up at the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners (APCC) to develop, drive and lead a knowledge and good practice sharing strategy, to support evidence-based and innovative PCC approaches to reducing crime, and to deliver on one of the key recommendations from the government’s review of the PCC role.

The APCC is the national membership organisation representing Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs), deputy mayors and other local policing bodies. We work across England and Wales to support PCCs to provide national leadership and drive strategic change in policing, criminal justice, and community safety.

This is a new role and an opportunity to have a real and lasting impact on our approach to knowledge and good practice. As well as developing and implementing a new strategy, you will also be producing a range of resources for PCCs and their offices, building and facilitating networks and identifying and making best use of the most effective platforms for knowledge sharing and dissemination.

You will be working closely with a range of national partners, including the Association of Police and Crime Commissioner Chief Executives (APACCE), College of Policing, and National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC). Within the APCC, you will work particularly closely with our communications and public affairs team to maximise the effective use of the APCC website and other tools (e.g. social media) for sharing good practice.

This is a rewarding and demanding role in a busy and high performing team. You will need to be a strategic thinker who can work well with others, and have excellent analytical and research skills, along with a track record of producing high quality and accessible briefings and similar products for a range of audiences. You’ll also need to be able to build good strong, collaborative relationships with partners and to be politically astute and aware. Ideally, you’ll already have a good working knowledge of policing and criminal justice policy, and, if not, you’ll need the ability to acquire this quickly.

If this role is of interest, we would love to hear from you.

This post is offered as a secondment opportunity or fixed term contract for 12 months with an opportunity to extend.

Salary: £40,000 to £45,000

Location: We are currently working remotely. Going forward, the postholder could be based in our London Westminster office and/or work remotely. There will be some travel involved in the role.
