We know that applying for a new job can be daunting, that’s why we have developed a number of recruitment events and workshops to help you through the recruitment process.
It is our aim to build our workforce to reflect the diversity of our communities by attracting the best talent from the widest pool of people. We have therefore developed events which are targeted to individuals from "under-represented" groups who are not accurately represented in our workforce. We are proud to use Positive Action to help us achieve this.
If you’re looking to join us but need help with your application, then register for one of our recruitment selection workshops.
Our workshops will offer you the chance to find out more about the recruitment and selection process for your preferred career. The recruitment team will go through the process step by step, from starting an application to joining us.
Please note, all of our recruitment workshops are being offered as Microsoft Teams online workshops. Please ensure you have access to an active email address and either a mobile phone or computer device.
Come along to our Encounter Kent Workshops, where will explain everything about the reality of policing, the benefits of joining Kent Police, the recruitment process, and how to submit a successful application!
This virtual career event has been tailored to women and those from ethnic minorities interested in a career as a police officer. Parents and guardians of young adults from these groups interested in joining within the next 12 to 18 months, are also welcome to attend.
During these sessions you will hear about the police officer entry routes and training that is provided on the PEQF (Policing Education Qualification Framework) and the other entry routes available.
The police fitness test is part of the recruitment process and involves you running a 15 metre track in time with bleeps which get increasingly faster.
At this preparation workshop we will:
Many employers use competency-based interviews to determine whether a candidate has specific skills related to the role that they are applying for. It is important to prepare for a competency-based interview as this can equip you with the confidence and knowledge that is needed to successfully convey why you would be the best fit for the role.
Our workshop will guide you through how to prepare for a competency based interview and give you competency-based interview tips.
If you have applied to join us as a police constable and are awaiting your senior interview then this workshop will help you to prepare.
