Policy Support Officer – APCC

Association of Police and Crime Commissioners

Closing date: 20 April 2021


This is an exciting opportunity to work for the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners (APCC) at the heart of Westminster in our busy policy team. The APCC is the national membership organisation representing Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs), deputy mayors and other local policing bodies. We support PCCs to provide national leadership and to drive strategic change in policing, criminal justice, and community safety.

We are seeking a Policy Support Officer to work with our busy APCC policy team, with a particular focus on supporting our ‘Safer Communities’ programme of work, which covers issues including fire governance, prevention, local policing, victims and criminal justice.

You will play a critical role in the team, supporting the Senior Policy Managers by undertaking research and analysis, tracking down data and information, drafting briefings and other policy documents, helping to develop policy positions, and building your knowledge of key policing issues.

You will work with Police and Crime Commissioners and other senior police stakeholders, including providing secretariat support for meetings of our APCC portfolios and working groups. You will work with our communications team to ensure that this work is effectively disseminated and promoted, and with our corporate team to ensure we are accountable to our members and to help support the team to monitor and report on its progress in delivering our Business Plan.

This is an excellent opportunity to gain experience working with policy professionals in a high pressure, high profile policy environment. You will need excellent interpersonal and communication skills, to be comfortable working with senior officials and politicians and be able to balance competing demands and pressures and to work on your own initiative. We will ensure that you have plenty of opportunity to develop your skills, competencies, and knowledge in a supportive environment and with guidance and support from the Senior Policy Managers.

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