Policy and Data Analyst (Joint Projects) – APCC

Association of Police and Crime Commissioners

Closing date: 20 April 2021


This is an exciting opportunity for a data and policy analyst to play a key role in shaping the national approach to policing, working at the heart of a new Joint Projects team with the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners (APCC) and the National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC) and to support their engagement with the Home Office’s national policing governance boards, including the National Policing Board (NPB) and its sub-boards.

Employed by the APCC, you will play an important role in providing expertise through the development and use of analytical products to inform and assist strategic decision-making by the APCC, NPCC and other national strategic partners, including enabling the sector to inform and influence the work of the NPB and its sub-boards.

You will produce clear and accessible written and verbal briefings and presentations to enable policing and other leaders to engage with complex data and information, identify priorities and develop evidence-based solutions to national strategic challenges.

More generally, you will work with colleagues in the Joint Projects Team, APCC and NPCC to improve awareness of and access to evidence, research, and analysis across the policing family.  This will include supporting knowledge management and good practice sharing.

This is an excellent opportunity to gain experience working with a new team in a high pressure, high profile policy environment.

You will need good policy and partnership experience, excellent interpersonal and communication skills and be comfortable working with senior stakeholders.  You will need to be able to balance competing demands and to work well in a team as well as on your own initiative. We will ensure that you have excellent opportunities to develop your skills, competencies, and knowledge with guidance and support from senior staff.

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. The National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) is a key national coordination body for law enforcement in the UK and the representative body for chief officers.

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 until March 2022 with an opportunity to extend.

Salary: £32,000 to £38,000

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