Joint Independent Audit Committee

Closing date: 25 February 2019

Helping to improve Fire and Police services in North Yorkshire

The Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner wants to establish an Independent Audit Committee to ensure that excellent governance arrangements are in place for the North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service.

An Independent Audit Committee is already in place for North Yorkshire Police but the Commissioner is looking at options to either extend the scope of this Committee to include ‘Fire’ or running a separate Committee to deal specifically with ‘Fire’.

We are looking for articulate, experienced professionals to help govern Fire, Police and the Commissioner’s office to join the Joint Independent Audit Committee(s)  covering Police, Fire and/or both committees.

As an independent member, you should have a financial, accountancy, risk-management or audit background and have experience in corporate governance, ideally in the public sector.

The Joint Independent Audit Committee is specifically looking for people with skills in the following areas:

  • Risk management
  • Treasury management
  • Audit governance
  • Accountancy

The Committee(s) 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.

Julia Mulligan said:

“The Joint Independent Audit Committee(s) are a central part of our governance process. But rather than being a dry committee talking numbers and complex management speak, this committee is a living, breathing group of people who proactively help shape how we do business in North Yorkshire.

“If you are interested in this type of work I would encourage you to come forward and apply for role, and help make policing and fire in North Yorkshire even better.”

Independent Chair – North Yorkshire Stop and Search and Use of Force Scrutiny Panel

The Independent Chair of the Stop and Search and Use of Force Scrutiny Panel will support the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner in building transparency of, and public confidence in, how North Yorkshire Police use stop and search and use of force powers. The panel will scrutinise the appropriate use of these powers, identifying good practice and areas for learning, making recommendations to the police for improvement of policy, procedure and practice.

The selection criteria will be based on personal qualities rather than professional qualifications.

Stop and search lay observer scheme

Monitoring the use of Stop and Search requires the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner to provide opportunities for members of the public to accompany police officers on patrol when they might deploy stop and search powers.

‘Lay observation’ allows a process of two-way learning to take place, bringing the police closer to the public. In this way, the Lay Observer Scheme will mean:

  • Members of the public are provided with the opportunity to see stop and search in action;
  • The police have the opportunity to demonstrate their use of stop and search;
  • The public has the opportunity to provide feedback to the police based upon their observations.
