What we are looking for:

We are looking for a Project Support Officer (Education) to lead on establishing strong and effective working links with partners and communities and building strong and trusting relationships between key stakeholders and individuals on behalf of the Violence Reduction Unit.

About us:

It is an exciting time for the OPCC Commissioner here in Nottinghamshire. The Police and Crime Commissioner has an ambitious Police and Crime Plan (Make Notts Safe Plan) and our Office is working to deliver that plan. Collectively, we all play a part in working to ensure that there are fewer victims of crime, that we support those who have offended to desist and stabilise, and that there is greater trust and confidence in the police.


Who we are looking for:

We are looking for enthusiastic and committed individuals who will work as a team and with our partners to make meaningful change for the people of Nottinghamshire.

You will be interested in public sector and delivering positive outcomes for victims, survivors, and communities across Nottinghamshire. You should have a good awareness of building positive networks for young people that support diversion from criminal behaviour and engagement in pro-social activities.

It would be helpful for you to have knowledge of political environments and the role of Police and Crime Commissioner, as well as experience of supporting delivery and good business administration in a pressured environment.  It will be helpful for you to have experience of working with a range of customers, stakeholders at all levels and partner agencies.

We want our workforce to represent the communities we serve, creating a culture where everyone feels safe and is welcomed, and we are committed to equality, diversity and inclusion.

Why you should work for us:

You will be welcomed by talented colleagues who work as a team. Working in our Office offers professional satisfaction as well as the opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of other people. It will provide stimulating professional interest and challenge and ensure delivery of services across a wide range of culturally diverse towns, city and rural communities, tailored to maximise local impact and to help ensure that everyone feels safe wherever they are based. Against this complex backdrop you will work with integrity, leading and working collaboratively with others, on behalf of all our communities.

We are committed to supporting the continuous professional development of our team members, including their learning and development needs.

We also support agile, flexible and hybrid working options, and are open to applications from candidates who need or wish to work part time hours.
