Build the Assurance and Learning function that 20,000 officers need.

London is home to almost nine million people across 32 boroughs. We use every possible means to keep them safe and bring criminals to justice. You’ll contribute to this by creating a new function to help police officers right across the Met — the UK’s largest police service.

We’ll look to you to deliver compliance with standards and policy, capture learning and drive improvement in working practices. Within our Frontline Policing Delivery Unit you’ll establish and lead a new unit of small, high performing teams spanning three interlinked functions. It’s here that you’ll work to provide insight on some of the Met’s most important challenges, and support in making progress against them.

The three teams will report directly into you, providing key observations and recommendations on high risk, high harm processes and procedures for strategic assessment in line with priorities. As the Head of FLPDU Assurance and Audit, you will also work with the Director of FLDPU, Chief Officers Group and Strategy & Governance to deliver an evidence-based performance, risk,  assurance and learning service as part of an annual governance cycle.

By developing and implementing solid approaches, you will provide a business intelligence service to recognise emerging risks, identify and implement organisational learning, steer FLP direction, provide level 2 and level 3 assurance and inform decision-making at all levels.

You’ll need to bring us a good understanding of the strategic environment in which we operate, and how an evidence-based performance, risk and assurance environment in a corporate setting applies to operational policing.

A strong influencer, stakeholder manager, leader and negotiator, you will have the ability to build working relationships with senior colleagues and peers. In addition, you will need a professional or postgraduate qualification in a statistical, analytical, social science, business management, risk management, assurance or related discipline, or equivalent knowledge and high-level experience.
