Dip your toes into the world of policing…

Five exceptional individuals are being recruited to put the world of police dogs, firearms, neighbourhood policing and major crime under the microscope as part of an independent audit committee.

The committee looks at all aspects of policing and advises the Police and Crime Commissioner and the Chief Constable of Cleveland Police about governance and risk.

This could be anything from assessing Taser use across the force to  ensuring key Financial Controls are in place.

The group of five meets at least four times a year, and the PCC and Chief are seeking to appoint a Chair and four members, including a Vice Chair, for the next four years.

In line with guidance established when the PCC was first elected, the chair will receive an annual allowance of £3,400, the Vice Chair will receive £2,100 and other members receive £1,500.

Chief of Staff for the Office of Police and Crime Commissioner, Simon Dennis, said: “This is an integral role at the helm of policing so it’s really important that we attract the right people for the job.

“The Audit Committee plays a key role in enhancing public trust and confidence and assisting the Commissioner to hold Cleveland Police to account.

“The successful candidate must be able to demonstrate experience and knowledge of corporate governance issues and will have a passion for providing an excellent service to the people of Cleveland.”  

Further information on the roles and details on how to apply are available at http://www.cleveland.pcc.police.uk/Information/Joint-Independent-Audit-Committee-Recruitment.aspx

Closing date for applications is 1st October and prospective candidates are invited to attend the next meeting of the Joint Audit Committee on Thursday 21st September at 10:30am at Ladgate Lane.
