To build the world’s biggest online police station, we need you.

UK Policing is transforming the way it delivers services. The ambition is to use digital channels to make the experience of contacting the police as helpful, personal and reassuring as approaching an officer in the street. We plan to create the world’s biggest online police station to serve the British public. But we can’t do it without an experienced Finance & Commercial Manager.

This is a chance to play a vital role in the roll-out of our national policing platform (the SOH or Single Online Home). You’ll assess contracts and finance during the delivery and build phase of the project, and also as we manage the site in the future. It will be down to you to assess SOH finances against strategy to ensure the project meets budgets and brings expected benefits. And you’ll also act as a Contract Manager, spotting risks, evaluating data and maximizing performance.

The project’s success relies on the collaboration of stakeholders, suppliers, finance teams and all the forces involved. You’ll therefore be a link, interacting with all parties, managing the Section 22 Agreement and helping to co-ordinate funding and invoicing activities.  

We’re therefore looking for a CCAB-qualified (or equivalent) professional with fantastic people skills. You should be equipped to work with senior managers up to board-level, and deal with central government and national organisations. You’ll also need good technical knowledge of finance, management and reporting. We’ll expect you to know about best practice contract management, public sector procurement rules and G Cloud. Beyond this, you’ll need to be analytical and team-focused with an organised approach. A strategic thinker, you’ll be highly motivated and determined to hit deadlines.  

To apply, please visit our website to download a role specific information pack. Applications will be via a detailed CV, Personal Statement and online application form.

Completed applications must be returned by 18th October 2019.

We view diversity as fundamental to our success. To tackle today’s complex policing challenges, we need a workforce made up from all of London’s communities. Applications from across the community are therefore essential.
