The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) in Dyfed-Powys is seeking new independent members to join its Joint Audit Committee.
The Joint Independent Audit Committee provides independent advice and assurance on the overall governance of the OPCC and Dyfed-Powys Police.
The Committee will review and scrutinise the adequacy and effectiveness of risk management, internal audit and control, and corporate governance arrangements of both organisations, as well as reviewing financial management and reporting.
The Committee comprises five independent members and the Police and Crime Commissioner and the Chief Constable are looking to appoint another two.
Applicants must have a good understanding and experience of public sector legislation and guidance and be politically neutral.
Carys Morgans, Chief of Staff and Monitoring Officer at the OPCC said “The Joint Audit Committee is a key component of the PCC and Chief Constable’s arrangements for corporate governance and this is a great opportunity for anyone who has an interest in this area and would like to help scrutinise the way that police finances operate.”
Applicants must be over the age of 18, live or work in the Dyfed-Powys area and be able to attend meetings during the working day.
The successful applicants will receive training and a daily allowance including expenses for travelling to Police Headquarters. Meetings are normally held on a quarterly basis.
Applicants will be subject to a police vetting check. Serving police officers or police staff are not eligible for this role.
Closing date for applications is 27 July 2021.
