Candidates for the £195,483 job have until 25 April to send in their applications.

"This is a high profile role, policing in the most challenging operational environment in the United Kingdom and Ireland," the advertisement said.

"We are looking for an individual with considerable operational experience and sound business skills, capable of delivering continuous improvement in the context of a reducing budget."

The position as Northern Ireland's top police officer became vacant when Matt Baggott announced his intention to retire this year from the post after almost five years.

Applicants are required to have at least two years' experience in another police service at Assistant Chief Constable level and a proven track record in achieving results.

The Policing Board continued: "Accountable to the Board on all aspects of policing in NI, the new Chief Constable will work closely with the board in setting the future priorities for policing over the next five years.

"The Board's vision is to ensure the delivery of an effective, efficient, impartial, representative and accountable policing service which secures the confidence of the whole community.

"The successful applicant will have the leadership, professional and people skills to lead officers and staff in ensuring Northern Ireland becomes safer and stronger."

An application pack can be requested by contacting 02890 408 519.
