Applications open for Lancashire Police Audit Committee positions

Lancashire's Police and Crime Commissioner and the Constabulary's Chief Constable are looking to recruit independent members for their Joint Audit Committee.

A new chair for the Audit Committee was successfully recruited earlier this year, and now Clive Grunshaw and Steve Finnigan are seeking to appoint four members to serve on the committee.

The people appointed will help play a vital role in ensuring public money is spent wisely and proper controls are in place for the two organisations, which have a net budget of more than £260 million.

As committee members, they will be expected to ensure the committee provides advice and support to the Police and Crime Commissioner and Chief Constable to ensure governance arrangements are adequate and sound across both organisations. The committee's role includes ensuring there are correct governance, risk, internal control and financial arrangements in place.

Applicants will need to demonstrate they have the correct skills and experience to take on this role, and will be paid a daily rate for attending meetings in line with the Home Office Tribunal Rates. The committee meets at least four times a year.

• An information pack with further details and an application form can be requested by emailing sophie.carter@lancashire.pnn.police.uk. The closing date for applications is 10th January 2014, with interviews scheduled to be held on Wednesday, February 5.
