Policy and Partnership Manager (Joint Projects) – APCC
Association of Police and Crime Commissioners
Closing date: 20 April 2021
This is an exciting opportunity for a policy and partnership specialist 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 a critical role in contributing to the design and delivery of a programme of joint project work that brings together the APCC, NPCC, Home Office and other policing partners to work more effectively together as a policing partnership / system, and to develop strategy and identify investment priorities for national policing capabilities.
You will work with both the APCC and NPCC to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of national policing and criminal justice programmes by supporting the improvement of co-ordination and collaboration across APCC policy portfolios, NPCC co-ordination committees and HO programmes.
This is a rewarding and demanding role, and an excellent opportunity to gain experience working with a new team in a high pressure, high profile policy environment.
You will need strong 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.

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.
