Chair of the Police Remuneration Review Body and National Crime Agency Remuneration Review Body

Do you want to play a leading role in chairing a Body who is responsible for advising the government on a range of issues relating to police pay and conditions, impacting police officers in England and Wales?

Time commitment: Full attendance for Review Body duties is expected. The combination of meetings and visits will be around 25 days per annum for the Chair. Meetings are currently being held remotely due to the current Covid-19 restrictions. It is likely some meetings will continue to be held remotely when the restrictions are lifted.

Remuneration: £350 per day, along with reimbursement for reasonable travel and subsistence costs.

The Police and National Crime Agency Remuneration Review Bodies were established in 2014, and provide independent advice to the government on police pay and conditions and pay of National Crime Agency (NCA) officers with operational powers. 

Police officers are subject to restrictions on their industrial rights, including a prohibition on their right to strike; the same is also true of NCA officers designated with operational powers. Therefore, it is essential that the Review Body can inspire the confidence of officers from both workforces.

We are seeking a new Chair to lead the Board forward in a time of considerable change for policing. The role will provide an influential and intellectually stimulating challenge for the right individual contributing to recruiting, retaining and motivating an effective NCA and police workforce. As PNCARRB Chair you will bring your own expertise to the Review Bodies, alongside a high degree of analytical ability, strong communication skills, and an understanding of the issues facing complex organisations.

The Chair will show leadership skills, a good understanding of policing stakeholders, and the political awareness necessary to guide a diverse Board effectively. It is essential you have senior chairing experience as the Chair will strive to make decision by reaching consensus, taking into account different views, while maintaining respect and consensus. The Chair position is a rare opportunity to lead a body whose work impacts on all police officers in England and Wales.

Appointment will be for a minimum of three years. For more information about the roles please visit:

The closing date for receipt of applications is 23:00 hours on 27 June 2021.

We value and promote diversity and are committed to equality of opportunity for all. Appointment will be made on merit following an open, fair and transparent competition.
