The Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) is the organisation through which the Mayor of London exercises his role as the Police and Crime Commissioner for London and is led by the Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime. MOPAC undertakes a broad range of statutory duties and works closely with the Mayor of London, Deputy Mayor and Metropolitan Police Service to deliver the priorities that will create safer London communities.

 

The Mayor of London has appointed the first ever Victims Commissioner for London, who is leading the way on representing the needs and voice of victims across the criminal justice system.

 

With this new appointment comes the opportunity of being able to help steer and support the direction of this important area. In this newly created role you will be working closely with the Victims Commissioner to drive change across the capital and to ensure that the victims’ voice plays a part in the shaping of strategies, policies, legislation and services that directly impact the victim’s journey: from reporting the crime to sentence and post sentencing.

 

Therefore, we are looking to appoint a Policy Support Officer for a fixed term or secondment (until June 2020) to offer research, support and advice. The role holder will be expected to have awareness of social research, have a keen understanding of national and regional issues, particularly as they relate to the needs and rights of victims of crime, and an ability to demonstrate political awareness.

 

This post will be based within the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) which is the organisation through which the Mayor of London exercises his role as the Police and Crime Commissioner for London.

We welcome applications from everyone regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, faith or disability.  Reasonable adjustments will be made to working arrangements to accommodate a person with a disability who otherwise would be prevented from undertaking the work.

 

Political Restriction; under the Local Government and Housing Act 1989 (as amended by the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011) all members of staff of the MOPAC will be politically restricted without the right to apply for an exemption.

 

The successful candidates will be expected to undergo the necessary security vetting which may take up to 8 weeks to be completed. Applicants will also need to have resided in the UK continuously for at least the last three years.
