Vacancy - Assurance Officer

Assurance Officer for

The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC), Humberside

Salary: Band D £27,500 - £32,000 

Based at The Lawns, Cottingham (agile working available) 

The OPCC has a strong focus on employing people that best fit with the ethos and culture of our team and are looking for someone that will embrace our values of Ambition, Brave, Connecting, Compassion and Trust.

We are looking for an Assurance Officer to support the OPCC to develop its assurance function and ensure we meet our statutory requirements.

We have high ambitions for ourselves and our communities so you will look to help us ensure progression towards the delivery of our Police and Crime Plan, annual Activity Plan and our statutory business as usual.

We are looking for someone with great verbal and written skills, and competence in using our systems – this includes the ability to easily pick up the requirements of our Pentana system and help us to further develop its capabilities.  You will be dealing with a diverse range of information and people, and possess the ability to understand, interpret and summarise things in a timely manner.

Whilst it would be great to have someone who knows who we are, what we do and who we work with, it isn’t our greatest requirement.  We want the right person.  We can easily give you the context of our working environment.  We need the right skillset and values, and a real ‘can do’ attitude.  That is our priority.

Any experience of working with statutory operating frameworks in a public sector or third sector setting would be advantageous.

You will be required to work out of the main OPCC office based at The Lawns, Cottingham, although we work to the ethos of being an ‘Employer of Choice’ and therefore do operate agile working which can accommodate flexible working requests.

You will work direct to the Head of Assurance and Statutory Duties. You will work collaboratively with other colleagues in the team.

If you are interested in this challenging and exciting role, you can get further information by contacting Paul Wainwright, Head of Assurance and Statutory Duties (, to arrange an informal conversation.

Should you wish to apply, you can do so by sending a covering letter and CV indicating what you think you could bring to the role and how you meet the requirements of the role profile.  This should be sent by email to  You should also complete the Monitoring Questionnaire and submit with your application.

The closing date for this vacancy is Thursday 23 June 2022, midday.
