Cambridgeshire Police Federation is recruiting a welfare officer to support members, the branch team and workplace representatives.

Branch chair Liz Groom said: “The Federation is committed to supporting the work of our reps and our membership every step of the way.

“This is an important new role that will allow us to grow and to improve the support that we can offer. It will also ensure we’re operating in an effective manner for the benefit of our members.”

The successful candidate will be responsible for working with Federation reps and co-ordinating welfare support for members.

They will be expected to build a relationship with the Force welfare officer and to work with them to identify issues affecting members.

Other responsibilities include attending occupational health appointments if a member requests support, and providing members with support and guidance.

Among the skills required, the post holder is expected to be computer literate, have good interpersonal and communications skills and experience of dealing with vulnerable people who may require instant support and guidance.

The Federation said it’s desirable but not essential that the post holder has worked in a policing background, has worked in a members’ services organisation and has an understanding of Cambridgeshire Police’s and the Federation’s policies, procedures and police and pension regulations.

The part-time role is for 24 hours a week, working in eight-hour day shifts. It’s an eight-month contract based at Yaxley.
