Job Description

Be at the heart of keeping London safe and delivering the Mayor's priorities. The Mayor's Office for Policing and Crime is responsible for overseeing the work of the largest and most famous police service in the country, protecting one of the world's greatest cities. We commission vital services to prevent crime and offending, and to help victims of crime to recover from their experiences. We bring partners and communities together to tackle the crime and safety challenges unique to a global city. We're looking for an individual with exceptional judgement, influence, experience and leadership skills to join us as our new Chief Executive Officer. As our CEO you'll support the Mayor of London by leading and managing our staff in overseeing the performance of the Metropolitan Police Service; agreeing the policing budget; delivering policies, convening partners and commissioning services to make our capital safer for all. Your work will affect the lives of millions of Londoners. It will influence billions of pounds of public spending. You will engage with the most senior politicians and police officers in the country, and with London's many diverse communities to understand the issues that affect them. Your work will be in the public eye locally, nationally and internationally. About us The Mayor's Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) is the organisation through which the Mayor of London exercises his role as the Police and Crime Commissioner of London. We work to deliver the Mayor's ambitious agenda for making our city safer for all, and to fulfil his statutory responsibilities for the maintenance of an efficient and effective police service for the nation's capital. We are headed by the Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime (DMPC) who is looking for a new Chief Executive to support in delivering the Mayor's priorities for policing and safety.

We convene partners and stakeholders to work together to improve the safety of Londoners and to intervene and prevent crime. Reducing violence - including violence against women and girls, keeping children safe, standing up to hate, intolerance and extremism and building trust and confidence in communities are just some of the critical issues facing London. As CEO you'll lead and manage MOPAC in tackling these issues through supporting the Metropolitan Police, criminal justice agencies, London boroughs and the voluntary sector to reduce crime and protect victims across London. You'll influence and engage with a wide variety of stakeholders and government bodies to ensure highly collaborative working relationships in the public domain, notably with the Greater London Authority (GLA) and Violence Reduction Unit (VRU) where you'll work across City Hall to deliver the Mayor's priorities on policing and safety.
