"We are by no means a failing police service, we are improving, but if people want a challenge and to prove their capabilities, this will be a good job for them.
"There is a long way to go, but my gut feeling is we will end up with a high-calibre candidate to replace Tim Hollis, who is an incredibly hard act to follow."
Interviews are due to take place on January 22 and 23. Mr Grove's chosen candidate will go before the police and crime panel for a confirmation hearing in February.
The panel has the power to veto his choice.
