Chief Constable Recruitment

Chief Constable epaulettes and Warwickshire Police cap badgeAn opportunity has arisen for an exceptional individual to become Warwickshire Police’s new Chief Constable.

The Police and Crime Commissioner has launched the process to find a dynamic and inspirational leader to help shape the next chapter of the delivery of public services to the benefit of communities in Warwickshire.

After a period of change and redevelopment Warwickshire is now re-established as a standalone force, moving forward with full operational independence. Record-levels of officer numbers are in place to provide extra resilience and reassurance to communities.

At Warwickshire you will find an opportunity to make your mark, working with an engaged and committed workforce, implementing and embedding the improvements and new ways of working that are now in train.

You will work closely with the Police and Crime Commissioner to be accountable for the effective planning and delivery of the Police and Crime Plan, while also enjoying the opportunity to form partnerships, both strategically and operationally within the county and further afield.

As this advertisement goes live, the elections for the next Police and Crime Commissioner term of office are due to take place on May 6. The Commissioner has therefore timed the application process to enable whoever the electorate chooses for the next term of office to be able to decide on the appointment as one of their first major decisions.

The Police and Crime Commissioner and Warwickshire Police are committed to equality and diversity and welcome applications from all suitably qualified candidates, particularly those from under-represented groups.

The closing date for applications is 11 May 2021.
