Chief Constable Recruitment

As Police and Crime Commissioner, Mark is looking for a dynamic, forward thinking, chief police officer who can work with him and key partners in a constructive and positive way to deliver policing and partnership working, in alignment with the Police and Crime Plan.

West Yorkshire is home to the fourth largest and one of the busiest police forces in England and Wales with a budget of around £550m and is rich in diversity, of people, landscape, economy and culture. You will see the beauty and diversity in our county and some areas which present great challenges, but also real opportunities to make a positive difference.

We have some interesting, unique and exciting plans going forward, so this vacancy is a fantastic opportunity for anyone looking to serve as Chief Constable in a large metropolitan area, who wants to work with us to further progress the Force.

We are looking for candidates that bring, in equal measure, proven operational delivery, along with strong leadership ability, that will build on our culture of fairness and openness to ensure we represent the communities we serve.
