With over 1500 highly trained police officers and police staff, we are a specialist armed police service, responsible for providing armed police protection to licenced civil nuclear facilities in the UK and civil nuclear material in transit in the UK and internationally.  We are committed to drive people, process and systems improvement to support the operation and build a collaborative and collegiate working environment to further expand and diversify the work that we do.  With the recent appointment of our new Chief Constable, we are now looking to appoint a new Deputy Chief Constable.

You will lead the Capability Directorate of the CNC to deliver the operational capability required to meet our strategic intent.  Ensuring a consistent state of preparedness to engender public confidence in the protection provided by the vigilance of the organisation in its role as an armed police force, and in providing counter terrorism firearms support to Home Office Forces at times of mutual aid, whilst sustaining the core strategic responsibilities to stakeholders. 

You will bring experience of a senior leadership role within a firearms command environment, with a successful track record of leading transformational change and providing innovative leadership as part of a senior executive team.  This is a high-risk environment, where safety and security are paramount and so experience of working in an environment of this nature is critical.    We are continuing to build a collaborative and engaging culture, and value the contributions of uniform and non-uniform staff alike on our journey of transformational change.  There are exciting times ahead with opportunities for continuous improvement of the business.
