All Police Jobs lists all jobs from all police forces in England and Wales.
As part of that process, we identify any words used that have been shown to have gender bias; words that have been shown to be more attractive to potential applicants of a specific gender.
For an understanding of the words identified, please see the previous blog.
We have looked at all 11,800 job vacancies that have been advertised by police forces between 1st April 2022 and March 31st 2023. Our findings have been published in a report, that is available for free. Simply get in touch if you would like a copy.
We have broken down the use of gendered language by region, job type, and seniority, for both officer and staff roles.
Subscribing forces can see their own analysis of their use of gender bias in recruitment advertising, but we have kept individual forces anonymous in the overall report. Our aim is to inform and help, not name and shame.
