Welcome from the Chief Constable and Chief Fire Officer

As the Chief Constable of Northamptonshire Police, the Chief Fire Officer of Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service and the joint Director for Enabling Services, we are committed to working together to deliver unrivalled policing and fire and rescue services across our county to fight crime, protect people and keep our communities safe. Delivering first-class enabling services is crucial to delivering this.

Working alongside and under the governance of the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner, we aim to provide the most efficient and effective services possible, putting people first and continually seeking to develop and grow, through hard work, innovation and collaboration.

Significant change and progress has been made; however, there is still much more to be done. We have a clear vision to bring together functions across police and fire, enabling the frontlines of both organisations to deliver better services to the public. A programme of change is underway and benefits are beginning to be realised for the organisations. We believe that people are at the heart of the services we provide and therefore place a strong emphasis on getting the right leader for our joint Human Resources function. We need someone who understands how to deliver culture change, how to lead across functions and who is technically adept and understands both employee relations and organisational development.

We are looking for someone who is able to match excellent human resource management with organisational need, someone who recognises opportunities and is able to capitalise on them for the benefit of the public that we serve. The right candidate will be able to bring change at pace, matching the visions of the organisation. We need someone who can work and deliver within different cultural environments, who is creative and innovative and not constrained by traditional ways of working. We need someone who outwardly displays passion, loyalty, commitment, drive and leadership, with a great sense of humour and most importantly a desire to serve the public.

There has never been a more exciting time to be a part of the senior teams of Northamptonshire Police and Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service, with growth in numbers, new and innovative processes and thinking, and a determination from across both services to be at the vanguard of blue light collaboration.

If this is you, we look forward to meeting you and sharing in the success of these exciting times.

Nick Adderley, Chief Constable - Paul Bullen, Director of Enabling Services - Darren Dovey, Chief Fire Officer
