Are you ready for a new challenge? Do you want to take your career to the next level? Are you looking for an opportunity to embrace your motivation and innovation for driving improvements in policing? Then we have an exciting opportunity for you...
The National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) brings UK police leaders together to set direction in policing and drive progress for the public. It enables Chief Constables and their forces to work collectively and collaboratively to help policing coordinate operations, reform, improve, and provide value for money.
Policing is operating in a time of global change and uncertainty, the public and our staff need a service which is responsive, able to tackle future challenges and embrace opportunity. The NPCC aims to support our operationally independent Chief Officers in their ambition to meet this need. We have been able to do this by adhering to the NPCC principles of coordination, collaboration and communication, through the strength of our policing network and effective partnership working.
The Organisational Development and Change (ODC) team has responsibility for driving continuous improvement across the NPCC, delivering projects of work, and giving advice and guidance to ensure development activity is in line with NPCC and wider policing strategies. The team works with a wide range of internal and external stakeholders to ensure the NPCC is able to support chief officers in the constantly evolving areas of national policing.
We are seeking to recruit an experienced project manager, who will have responsibility for leading on multiple projects across the NPCC landscape. Working at the centre of policing, on the biggest issues for the service, this is an exciting and challenging role where you can make a real difference. You will be required to manage your own portfolio of work, and lead projects utilising your own initiative. You will be highly solutions focused and a skilled problem solver who utilises your excellent project management skills to deliver projects from inception to delivery, with the support of the ODC team. You will regularly manage complex, high profile, politically sensitive work where decisions and delivery have national implications with the potential to impact on the reputation of the whole police service. You will need excellent interpersonal skills to establish and maintain credibility and effective working relationships with police chiefs, senior stakeholders and other NPCC staff.
The successful candidate would be part of an innovative team and would need to have the following experience and skills:
This is an exciting opportunity within NPCC, within a fast-paced environment and an ever-growing organisation.
