Interested in being Greater Sudbury's next chief of police? You'll have to get your resume together and contact your references by Jan. 17, the deadline to apply stipulated in the job ad released by Odgers Berndtson, the headhunting firm the city hired to come up with a list of candidates.

“Centrally located in northeastern Ontario, the City of Greater Sudbury offers a rich mix of urban, suburban, rural and wilderness environments,” the ad reads. “The city serves as a regional hub for many Ontario residents who live in nearby communities.

“To serve this unique community, the Greater Sudbury Police Services Board is seeking a chief of police whose leadership will inspire the trust and confidence of the service and the community.”

To be considered, candidates must have executive experience in policing, and be capable of leading the city's 264 police officers, 111 support staff and more than 300 volunteers. Understanding the needs and challenges of living in the North is also key, the ad says, particularly a city like Sudbury, which has a mix of urban and rural areas.

“Sound and reasoned judgment, combined with strategic decision making and a philosophy that supports a contemporary management style, will be key attributes to successfully managing complex issues and relationships, both internally and externally,” the ad continues. “Above all, you will be an enthusiastic and persuasive leader that inspires excellence and accountability as the service proactively embraces the opportunities in the coming years.”

Police chief hopefuls can contact Amanda Bugatto, of Odgers Berndtson, at 416-366-1990. You can also submit your application online – again, by Jan. 17 -- at www.odgersberndtson.ca/en/careers/12114.

The new chief will replace Frank Elsner, who took up his post as the top cop in Victoria, B.C., last week. Ward 5 Coun. Ron Dupuis, who chairs the city's police services board, says they hope to have a new chief in place by the spring.
