Motorcycle Activity Engagement Co-ordinator

We are welcoming applications for the role of Motorcycle Activity Engagement Co-ordinator with Devon & Cornwall Police based at the following location(s): Exeter Police Station 

Salary: Grade 7 - Starts at £34,968 rising by yearly increments to a maximum of £39,036 per annum 
Please note that the above salary is based on working 37 hours per week. If this role is part-time or you are appointed on a part-time basis your salary will be prorated to reflect this. Exceptions to starting salary may apply if you are an existing Devon and Cornwall or Dorset Police Staff employee substantively posted to a role at the same grade.

Type of employment:
Fixed Term 

Type of working arrangement: Hybrid Worker -  Hybrid working is a form of flexible working where workers spend some of their time working remotely (usually, but not necessarily, from home) and some in the employer's workspace.
If you are not currently a police staff employee and are successful for this post, you will be offered a Fixed Term contract.

Please note that applicants applying for an internal or external secondment should seek support from their current line manager for their temporary release from their substantive role before applying. External secondment requests will need to be supported by the Force Executive. At the end of the secondment the successful applicant(s) would return to their substantive role. However, if in the meantime the releasing department is subject to review, the successful applicant(s) would be included in that review as if still in post.
Hours per week: this role is 37 hours per week. However we welcome applications from individuals wishing to work on a part-time basis and are willing to consider flexible working patterns subject to business need.
Allowances: This role attracts no allowances.

The principal responsibility of the Motorcycle Activity Engagement Co-ordinator is to provide back-office management of the varying motorcycling commitments to support the Force motorcycle strategy, and to ensure a seamless combined approach between D&C Police, VZSW, National BikeSafe, Adecco and the partner organisations of IAM and RoSPA.

The postholder will also be required to plan and attend road safety and motorcycling events and education venues, on a motorcycle to provide a comprehensive insight into safer motorcycling.

The prevention of motorcycle casualties is a priority for the Vision Zero South West Partnership, with around 25% of the total number of people killed or seriously injured on Devon & Cornwall roads being on powered two wheelers. The post holder will be responsible for co-ordinating all preventative activity aimed at reducing casualties and engaging with motorcyclists to improve rider skills and awareness. This dynamic role will also lead on the delivery of initiatives such as Bikesafe and will shape the development of innovative inputs aimed at reducing the risks posed to motorcyclists.

This is a new and unique role designed to counter the disproportionate number of motorcyclists killed or seriously injured within our peninsular. A time-based assessment and review of the post will continue throughout the term with consideration to convert the fixed term into a permanent contract. Whilst the postholder would have an advantage having developed the role, there is no guarantee the post will be made a permanent position, and there is no guarantee that the incumbent postholder would be transferred to the permanent position, the selection of which would be subject of employment recruitment policy and regulations in place at the time.
