Do you feel engaged and excited by the vision of West Midlands Police?  Do you have the energy, drive and skills for the role? Do you feel that you are personally aligned to our value set?

If so we have an exciting opportunity for you!

West Midlands Police is seeking an Assistant Chief Constable who has the ability to lead policing in one of Europe’s most diverse and challenging policing environments, serving 2.8 million people in an area rich in diversity, with around 30 per cent of its population from ethnic minority backgrounds. Birmingham is also the youngest city in Europe, with under 25’s accounting for nearly 40 per cent of its population.

Who we are looking for?

An Assistant Chief Constable who shares our Force values, embodies our Leadership Promise and has a real passion for people and communities. You will have a collaborative leadership style with a desire to lead and shape the future direction of the second largest force in England. Your appetite to work in a challenging and complex organisation will be key in ensuring that we achieve our strategic commitments to the communities of the West Midlands.

Ensuring diversity, both through the people who work for us and the way in which we serve and protect our communities, is a key priority for us. We are looking for someone who can drive forward our equality and diversity strategy, build trust and confidence and ensure an inclusive approach.

As a Force we have delivered a significant amount of innovative change, our focus is now on embedding the innovation and new ways of working that we have introduced. Preparation is also well underway for our role in Coventry City of Culture in 2021 and the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham in 2022. Becoming games ready is now a key milestone for us as we shift our focus from 2020 to 2022.
