POLICE PLAN OF ACTION ON INCLUSION AND RACE
Police leaders have committed to a plan of action to build a more inclusive police service, and address negative disparities for Black people interacting with, or working in, policing in England and Wales.
On the basis of evidenced negative disparities and historically lower rates of trust and confidence in policing, the immediate focus will be on the experiences and concerns of Black people.
The Police Plan of Action on Inclusion and Race is being led by the National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) and the College of Policing, with partners from across policing, including Police and Crime Commissioners and staff associations. A supporting programme will run for at least two years to deliver the plan of action.
We are seeking a Stakeholder Engagement Manager to lead and manage engagement with an exceptionally wide and diverse pool of stakeholders as part of the ambitious police plan of action.
It is essential to the success of the programme that key stakeholders receive an appropriate level of information and understand how they can support and influence the programme. The Stakeholder Engagement Manager will design effective processes, products and plans to enable this crucial two-way dialogue.
The Stakeholder Manager will need to build strong partnerships and influence stakeholders to generate support including race equality groups, scrutiny groups, community groups, parliamentary select committees, campaigners, politicians and police officers and staff.
You’ll give strategic and tactical advice and create engaging, impactive products and content to support the communication of the programme and its progress in various stakeholder forums.
You’ll have proven experience of being able to identify, engage and build effective partnerships with key stakeholders to deliver tangible outputs.
You’ll have a good understanding of the principles and practicalities of effective stakeholder engagement including confidence in stakeholder mapping. You’ll be confident in using insight and analysis to shape strategies and evaluating impact.
Strong organisational, planning and project delivery skills are essential with the ability to manage multiple strands of work while delivering to tight deadlines and working under pressure.
Excellent written communication skills across a variety of channels and audiences and ability to plan, create and commission high quality content are key skills.
You’ll have an interest in and understanding of race and inclusion issues and be motivated by contributing to the aims of the programme and bringing about positive change.
