Sussex Police is recruiting for an assistant chief constable - with an annual wage packet of £95,000 plus expenses.

The force, which plans to shut numerous stations and needs to save millions, yesterday (WED) advertised the post on its website as a replacement for Assistant Chief Constable Robin Merrett who recently retired.

The successful candidate would be the second highest-ranking officer in Sussex.

Giles York is currently Temporary Chief Constable following former Chief Constable Martin Richards' retirement in February.

Sussex Police recruit for the Assistant Chief Constable, while Chief Constable is appointed by the Police and Crime Commissioner.

Describing the possible candidate, the force said they needed to be “dynamic”, have “exceptional business acumen”, and “a high degree of sensitivity to the concerns of the public,” the job advert said.

Perhaps you should make your mind up whether you're talking about the deputy chief constable job, or the assistant chief constable? But, if you think that's a lot, check out the rates payable in East Sussex Fire & Rescue , a much smaller organisation: http://www.hastingso
