Deputy Chief Fire Officer

£104,823 - £110,906 inclusive of operational allowance.

The Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire is looking to appoint an inspirational Deputy Chief Fire Officer who will work closely with our newly appointed Chief Fire Officer and continue the work of modernising the way in which North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service currently operates.

North Yorkshire is one of only four Services under the Commissioner model and in shared governance arrangements with the Police, bringing unique opportunities to drive collaboration and change. The Service has an ambitious programme of transformational change and collaboration already underway, making this an exciting time to join and support with leading the Service. You will be heavily involved in shaping the future delivery of the Service to ensure our communities remain some of the safest in which to live and work. This includes embedding the work of our shared enabling services across Fire, Police and the OPFCC through Enable North Yorkshire.

 

If you're the person we're looking for, you'll have:

  • The leadership style that motivates and inspires those around you, building confidence, trust and stability amongst the workforce.
  • An authentic and engaging communication style, with the ability to build and maintain strong working partnerships both inside the Service and across the partnership landscape.
  • You will value and not discourage difference, with a passion and commitment to drive forward transformation in respect of equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) priorities.
  • You will have the determination and passion to see through your vision for the Service providing clarity to all.
  • You'll be a strategic thinker, with experience of leading complex transformational change programmes and will thrive on achieving results through teamwork.

Eligibility

Applicants must be persons of significant calibre with proven strategic management experience, at competent Area Manager level or above, display strong evidence of operating at a strategic level within a Fire and Rescue Service, and with the commensurate high level of skills.

 

The provision of Incident Command leadership is essential and applicants must be capable to operate at Strategic Commander level, and hold an accredited ICL L4 or equivalent qualification to apply. Applicants are also required to evidence relevant academic achievement or to demonstrate equivalent experience.

 

The role is based in Northallerton but the applicant will be expected to travel across North Yorkshire and the City of York to meet the requirements of the role and the Continuous Duty System.
