Communities Policy Officer – Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner 

If you get your energy from people, have experience working in partnership with the public and colleagues from other agencies and know how to inspire volunteers, then we need you.

A vacancy has arisen for a Communities Policy Officer in the Office of the Cambridgeshire Police and Crime Commissioner supporting the delivery of the Police and Crime Commissioner’s Police and Crime Plan and statutory responsibilities. 

Existing experience working within the criminal justice system, policing or community safety world would be a huge bonus, particularly in public engagement, and help you hit the ground running to what will be a fast-paced and varied role. 

One week you could be arranging a public meeting about rural crime; the next collating feedback from residents about local issues of crime and disorder and briefing senior decision makers. You will also play a key role in the office managing volunteers to deliver independent scrutiny on the Commissioner’s behalf – which will require attendance at the odd evening meeting. 

You will be part of a small but supportive team, currently working completely agile, but who will eventually be back at the Office of Police and Crime Commissioner based in Police Headquarters in Huntingdon for some of the working week.  You must be able to travel to the office, and around the county and elsewhere, for events and meetings to meet business need, once circumstances allow. 

The role is full time (37 hours) but flexible working arrangements will be considered to cover the full-time hours. 

If this sounds are like a job for you and want a quick chat please contact Nicky Phillipson, Director of Commissioning or Head of Engagement and Communications Catherine Kimberley via:
