The post-holder will also work closely with the Office of Police and Crime Commissioner for social media posts that reflect current issues, projects and news within the OPCC as well as re-posting partner agency output.

The post-holder must be able to work under pressure as some of the posts and media releases will be 'live' from events  to the various media outlets the OPCC engage with. Therefore knowledge and relevant experience inputting across a range of social media platforms will be essential.
The post-holder will also manage media requests from press agencies and local and national media outlets requiring to speak to the Police and Crime Commissioner.

It is expected the post-holder will be educated to a degree level and have previous experience working in a communications environment.
The Office of Police and Crime Commissioner is a small team that covers a wide range of activities from commissioning victim related services including the PCC managed Signpost victim’s support centre to working on police related projects the Police and Crime Commissioner requires under their Police and crime plan.
