Force seeks new Assistant Chief Constable for Northamptonshire
Main article content
An innovative and energetic Assistant Chief Constable (ACC) is being sought to join the Northamptonshire Police chief officer team, to help drive progress and continued improvement in the county’s policing services.
The successful candidate will share the Chief Constable’s vision and mission to provide an outstanding policing service, to fight crime and protect people, and will help lead Northamptonshire Police to the next level.
Chief Constable Nick Adderley said: “My ACCs are a critical part of the senior leadership team, integral to driving the future success of the Force. A forthcoming retirement means I’m now looking to recruit a new member of the team, someone with a real appetite to continue the improvement journey that we’re on.
“They’ll be a strong leader and skilled communicator, with commitment, drive and passion, and a dedication to serving the public. A forward thinker who is creative in their approach and style, who nurtures ideas and leads by collaboration not authority.
“I’m looking for an individual who can bring humour to our serious and pressurised business, with the energy to bring people with them and nurture the talent that I see every day across my organisation.
“Crucially, they will be genuinely passionate about improving the levels of trust and confidence our communities have in us, and will join us in our mission to fight crime and protect people, and deliver a consistent and quality service to those who turn to us for help.”
The Force is inviting applications from both existing and prospective candidates who have passed the Senior Police National Assessment Centre and the Strategic Command Course. The successful candidate will join five-strong chief officer team in March 2022 following the retirement of one of the incumbent assistant chief constables.
