SALARY: £105,600 plus allowances (including a generous removal and relocation package)

The Northern Ireland Policing Board (the Board) is seeking to appoint a number of inspirational leaders as Assistant Chief Constables within the PSNI to support the Chief Constable, Deputy Chief Constable and Chief Operating Officer in delivering the PSNI vision of ‘keeping people safe’ and role modelling the values of ‘we care, we listen, we act’.

The successful candidates will already have demonstrated a breadth and depth of operational command experience and have a proven track record of leading people and performance, role modelling values and driving change in policing.

They should be strong, visible and resilient leaders who will work with the community, colleagues, partner organisations and stakeholders to support the delivery of the PSNI’s neighbourhood policing, crime prevention and organisational culture transformation strategies.

The successful candidates should be comfortable representing the organisation at all levels, with strong relationship management skills, an ability to motivate and inspire people, encouraging innovative thinking and a problem solving mind-set to get the best out of officers and staff.

If you have the skills, professionalism and enthusiasm needed for one of these key roles the Board looks forward to hearing from you.

Candidates must have successfully completed the Strategic Command Course (SCC) or its equivalent and have extensive operational command experience.

For the right candidates these posts offer a unique opportunity to make a significant difference to the PSNI, to policing and to the people of Northern Ireland.
