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

Salary: Band D £28,080 - £32,673 / Band C £33,693 - £39,309 (dependent on experience)

Based at The Lawns, Cottingham (agile working available)

This role is hosted by the OPCC on behalf of the Humber Violence Prevention Partnership, a new Home Office-funded Violence Reduction Unit (VRU).

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.

The OPCC is working with partners to establish a new multi-agency 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).

We are looking for an experienced Power BI Developer to join the VRU’s evidence and evaluation team to lead the development of Power BI products that explain the impact and causes of serious violence in the Humber area, and the effectiveness of the VRU’s work to address it.

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.

You should have a track record of developing high quality Power BI products for a variety of audiences, together with a desire to innovate, try new approaches and further develop your skills.  You will be able to understand and present complex information in a visually appealing way, and manage a diverse portfolio of work.

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.

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 Thursday 18 August 2022, 12.00 noon.
