The Metropolitan Police Authority (MPA)has announced the potential to recruit an additional Deputy Assistant Commissioner as part of its current senior officer recruitment process
The MPA is currently advertising for a Deputy Assistant Commissioner in the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS). However, following discussions between the Chair of the Authority and the Commissioner, it has written to potential candidates to inform them it is possible that more than one appointment will be made if there are sufficient suitable candidates.
The letter says if any Commander or Assistant Chief Constable (and above) is considering applying, they need to be aware of this change.
The successful candidates will need to have an outstanding track record at Association of Chief Police Officer (ACPO) level, with the ability to manage significant resources and challenges, drive performance, embrace change and implement reform. Imagination, innovative thinking, people skills and a genuine commitment to playing a major role in the policing of London are essential, as is the ability to work closely with colleagues to deliver total policing.
Anyone intending to apply should inform their Chief Constable/Commissioner and regional Her Majesty’s Inspector of Constabulary (HMIC) immediately.
The MPA and MPS are equal opportunities employers fully committed to diversity and expect all applicants to have an understanding of, and commitment to, equal opportunities and diversity. As part of their commitment to drive cultural change, they have adopted the Equality Standard. In order to support their work in this area, the post holder will be expected to champion equality and diversity within their area of responsibility and within the organisation, to monitor and report progress and challenge any areas of poor performance.
