The Northamptonshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner (PFCC) and Chief Constable of Northamptonshire Police are recruiting two new members to join their Joint Independent Audit Committee.
This exciting opportunity allows you the chance to help make Northamptonshire a safer place to live by providing independent advice and assurance on the governance of the Office of the PFCC, Northamptonshire Police, and Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service.
The Joint Independent Audit Committee performs a statutory function and has been vital to ensure best practice and adherence to policies along with maintenance of good governance.
Members will also scrutinise the adequacy and effectiveness of risk management, internal audit and control and corporate governance arrangements of both organisations, as well as reviewing financial management and reporting.
Successful applicants to join the committee will receive training, an annual allowance of £3,000 and expenses, and will be subject to a police vetting check.
Applicants must be able to demonstrate a connection with Northamptonshire, have a good awareness and understanding of the public sector, and knowledge of best practice in audit and corporate governance.
Applications are encouraged from individuals with project management, estates and information technology skills and experience.
The closing date for applications is 5pm on November 1, 2021. You can find out more about the role of the Committee and download a copy of the information pack here.
