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.

Find out more about the recruitment and selection process for our police officer entry routes. The recruitment team will go through the process step by step, from completing an application to joining us.
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). You will also hear from our serving officers who are female and from an ethnic minority background. They will be talking about their experiences of joining the police, what encouraged them to join, their careers so far and how they have been supported as an under-represented individual.
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.
