The Police and Crime Commissioner and the Chief Constable for Gloucestershire have established a Joint Independent Audit Committee and a vacancy exists for a member of that committee.
The Joint Independent Audit Committee is a key component of the corporate governance of the Police and Crime Commissioner and the Chief Constable. The Committee provides independent review of the effectiveness of governance, risk management and control frameworks, financial reporting and annual governance processes, as well as internal and external audits.
Applications are sought from individuals from across the County who:
- Have an awareness of corporate governance and an understanding of the role of an audit committee
- Are objective; can demonstrate independent thinking and are able to constructively challenge the Police and Crime Commissioner and the Chief Constable.
- Are committed to the principle of public accountability
Whilst financial awareness is desirable, accounting experience and an accounting qualification are not essential.
The Committee comprises three members meeting around four times a year.
The appointment will be for an initial period of four years. An allowance plus reasonable expenses are paid for attendance.
Applicants must be independent of the Police and Crime Commissioner, the Police and Crime Panel and the Chief Constable, and must not be employed by the Police or partner organisations.
If you would like an application pack please telephone 01452 754348 or email PCC@gloucestershire.police.uk.
The closing date for receipt of completed applications is Thursday, 23rd February 2017.
