About the Role
Are you looking for a new career opportunity in a fast developing, forward thinking, and ambitious organisation? Demonstrating that you are an innovative, supportive, positive and flexible person, you will play a key role in delivering the Council’s community safety action plan. We are an ambitious team working to reduce and maintain low levels of crime and anti-social behaviour in the Borough, helping residents and visitors feel safe whether at home, outdoors or at work.
About the Person
With a proven track record in partnership work across the public and voluntary sectors you’ll also need experience of developing and delivering activities to successfully reduce crime and anti-social behaviour.
You will have excellent written and verbal communication skills, as well as strong negotiating and influencing skills, and be able to effectively chair multi-agency meetings. You will be well organised, with a problem solving approach, and able to deliver work to a deadline. You will also have line management responsibility for the Anti-Social Behaviour Officer.
Ideally you will have a good knowledge of statutory community safety obligations and antisocial behaviour legislation.
In exchange for your expertise, experience and enthusiasm, we will offer support in continuing your personal and career development, in addition to providing a wide range of employment linked benefits.
We provide you with competitive annual leave, and contribute 15% towards the LGPS pension scheme. You will also have access to a range of discounts including local and high street stores, and salary sacrifice schemes including a cycle lease scheme, and ‘Better’ leisure centre membership.
For an informal discussion about the role, please call Sarah Crosbie, Partnerships Team Leader, on 01737 276516.
We are proud to support the guaranteed interview schemes for those meeting the essential criteria for the role, under the Disability Confident employer scheme for disabled candidates, and the ‘Veteran’s scheme’ for ex-armed forces candidates.
