Vacancy - Partnerships Officer (Youth and Early Intervention)
Partnerships Officer (Youth and Early Intervention) for
The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC), Humberside
Salary: Band D (£28,080 - £32,673)
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 a Partnerships Officer to progress our ambitious programme of interventions for young people in or at risk of entering the criminal justice system. Your work will include co-ordinating a new education partnership and working with Youth Offending Teams, local authorities, charities and other organisations to develop projects that keep young people away from harm.
We have high ambitions for ourselves and our communities, so you will work with our partners to promote effective interventions that link together to improve outcomes for the people the PCC represents. You will consider where opportunities may arise for improvement and to do more.
You should have a track record of working with multiple partners, and will be able to build good working relationships to identify opportunity, overlap and gaps; negotiate change; and deal with problems as they arise. You will be a critical thinker, able to challenge constructively and work collaboratively to secure the best outcomes and make the best use of public funds.
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 an ambassador for the OPCC in working with a broad range of stakeholders, confident in their abilities, able to understand and challenge complex information.
Experience of working in or with schools, services or agencies that support young people in a public sector or third sector setting would be advantageous. Existing knowledge of the needs and issues faced by children and young people in our area would also be valuable.
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 Michael Richmond, Partnerships Manager (firstname.lastname@example.org) 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 email@example.com. You should also complete the Monitoring Questionnaire and submit with your application.
The closing date for this vacancy is Monday 5th September 2022, 12 noon.
