Warwickshire PCC re-launches search for a Deputy

Philip Seccombe, Police and Crime Commissioner for Warwickshire

Warwickshire Police and Crime Commissioner Philip Seccombe has re-launched his search for a Deputy to work alongside him in delivering a safer Warwickshire in which to live, work and visit.

The role is being advertised widely and the final candidate will be selected on merit through a fair, objective and open process. Applications were previously sought last summer, but no successful candidate was found.

“I have said from the outset that I want to ensure that I appoint the person with the right skills for the job and not to simply make an appointment if I don’t feel the right candidate has come forward,” said Mr Seccombe. “This is an important post for the county and will be a challenging and rewarding job, so I’m looking for someone who has a determination to work hard on the public’s behalf as part of strong and professional team.

“Applicants need not be from a political or a policing background but they will need to demonstrate excellent social skills which will enable them to engage with all parts of society.

“The successful candidate will work with me to deliver the objectives in the Police and Crime Plan and hold the Chief Constable to account, thereby achieving my aim of reducing crime in Warwickshire and helping to make the county a safer place to live, work and visit.”

The post will be a paid a salary of £40,000 p.a. and applications will be considered on a full or part-time basis.  The post holder should be resident in Warwickshire.

More details of the role and an application pack can be found on the Warwickshire PCC website at www.warwickshire-pcc.gov.uk/your-pcc/vacancies/ and the deadline for applications is noon on Friday 7 April.

The appointment is subject to a confirmation hearing by the Warwickshire Police and Crime Panel and will be for the duration of the Commissioner’s term of office.
