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

Based at The Lawns, Cottingham (agile working available)

This role is hosted by the OPCC on behalf of the Humber Violence Prevention Partnership, a Home Office-funded Violence Reduction Unit (VRU), and the Yorkshire and the Humber Rehabilitation Partnership, a partnership of PCCs and HM Prison and Probation Service.

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 who will embrace our values of Ambition, Brave, Connecting, Compassion and Trust.

We are looking for a talented individual to carry out analysis of data and information from a wide range of sources, in support of two multi-agency partnerships:

  • The new Violence Reduction Unit (VRU) for the Humber area, which will lead and coordinate the local response to serious violence through an evidence-based whole-system approach (also known as a public health approach).


  • The Yorkshire and the Humber Rehabilitation Partnership (YatH RP), a collaboration of PCCs and HM Prison and Probation Service that seeks to reduce reoffending across the region.

You will be based in the VRU’s evidence and evaluation team at the OPCC, but spend 40% of your time supporting the YatH RP – offering the opportunity to work with a larger number of partners across the wider region.

For the VRU, you will carry out analysis of serious violence trends and drivers in the Humber area, using data from a wide range of sources, and explore the impact of our interventions.  Your work will be used by senior local decision-makers to help the VRU set its strategy and prioritise its resources, and where relevant will be shared with the Home Office, other VRUs across the UK and the public.  You will be working with analysts from across the local public sector and in central government, together with academic and practitioner experts, to help address a major problem facing society.

For the YatH RP, you will support the Business Change Manager to provide information products to the multi-disciplinary senior management boards, with a focus on Employment, Accommodation and Rehabilitative Outcomes.  This is a diverse role and you may be asked to complete process mapping, quantitative and qualitatively analyse data, and assist in any shared procurement projects.     

You should have a track record of working with complex data and information sets and producing analytical reports to a broad range of stakeholders, excellent reasoning and analytical skills, and the ability to communicate complex issues in a simple and easy to understand 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. That is our priority.

We do need someone to be professionally astute, an ambassador for the OPCC and VRU in working with a broad range of stakeholders, confident in their abilities, and able to understand and challenge complex information.

Any experience of working with statutory operating frameworks in a public sector setting would be advantageous. In addition, as the data you will we working with will often be sensitive and shared from partners, a knowledge of data protection would also be beneficial,

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.

If you are interested in this challenging and exciting role, you can get further information by contacting Richard Kendall, VRU Director (, 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 Tuesday 26 July 2022, 5.30pm.
