Assistant Partnerships Officer    

We have an exciting opportunity within the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for an Assistant Partnerships Officer

What does the Partnership and Commissioning Team in the OPCC do?

Our team commissions services from a wide range of providers varying from large national organisations to smaller local providers, including organisations from the charity, independent, voluntary and community sectors.

Focusing on objectives from the Commissioner’s Police and Crime Plan, the team develops, manages and ensures the delivery of a variety of contracts, projects and services for Cumbria aiming to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour, help to prevent reoffending, support victims of crime and anti-social behaviour, raise awareness of issues and encourage reporting.

Our team combines problem solving, innovation and resourcefulness with empathy for the rights and wellbeing of the community, working in partnership to try and find creative solutions to complex challenges.  Our office is busy and vibrant, there is lots going on and always more to do.  Our team members care about what we do and support each other to achieve.

Does that sound interesting?

This role could see you working on a variety of projects, with a wide range of partners and stakeholders delivering positive change to Cumbria.  Every contract, project and initiative we manage brings its own set of unique challenges, every day is different, so you won’t get bored.  The work is largely office based, but some of your projects may require you to attend events or talk directly to members of the public.

Our team needs people with a broad set of skills, abilities, and experience, and with the right motivation, enthusiasm and initiative to make a difference to people’s lives.  Individuals with the right transferable skills, values, behaviours and attitude will be supported to develop and gain the relevant knowledge and understanding to be successful in their role.

Would you like to be part of our strong and dynamic team?
