Student Officer Recruitment

We're recruiting Police Constables could you be one of them?

If you're enthusiastic, adaptable, compassionate, collaborative and 18 or over, then you may be who we're looking for.

You need to be prepared for a varied job; a job that is as much about supporting victims, providing reassurance and building relationships as it is about flashing lights and handcuffing offenders.

It's a unique role with unique demands that are ever-changing. You need to be adaptable to change and ready to think on your feet.

If you are interested in becoming a Police Officer, you need to complete the Registration of Interest Stage which is open from 09:30am on Thursday 13th September 2018 and closes at 23:55pm on Monday 17th September 2018. You can only register your interest during this window.

Following the Registration stage, all applicants will be assessed and then all eligible candidates will be invited to the next stage in line with the timetable displayed in the Guidance Notes Document (attached below).

Applicants from BAME, Disabled and LGBT+ communities are especially encouraged to apply.
