Do you want to play a key role in shaping the landscape of the policing and fire & rescue services?
HM Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services (HMICFRS) is an independent body that inspects and reports to the public on the efficiency and effectiveness of police forces in England and Wales, fire & rescue authorities in England and national law enforcement agencies. It aims to ensure that the public and their elected representatives can hold inspected organisations to account by monitoring trends, challenging practice and identifying areas for improvement, and making performance information accessible.
The principal role of HMICFRS is undertaking the all-force inspections of policing in England and Wales, and of all fire & rescue authorities in England; providing the public with a clear, consistent and independent view of the quality of services in their local area. The post encompasses the dual roles of His Majesty’s Inspector of Constabulary and Inspector of Fire & Rescue Authorities in England and Wales. The post holder will also contribute to the corporate leadership of HMICFRS, working closely with the Chief Inspector to ensure that the inspectorate transformation programme is implemented successfully.
The successful candidate will have the capability to carry out rigorous inspections, be a first-class communicator with a successful track record of managing relations with a complex range of stakeholders, and a proven ability to develop and implement robust governance arrangements and monitor performance.
It is essential that the collective experience of the HMIs covers the breadth of the work of the Inspectorate. Given the current composition of the board, applications for this vacancy are particularly welcomed from candidates with experience of the wider Criminal Justice sector, or more broadly in governance or assurance roles.
This full-time appointment is made by HM The King on the recommendation of the Home Secretary. The initial term of office will be for a period of up to five years.
