FAQ

When is my local force likely to open recruitment?

We have an email alert system and we use it to notify our subscribers as soon as a job comes up that meets their criteria.

Sometimes a force announces that an application date for new officers will open on a given future date, in which case we will send out 2 alerts. One when the announcement is made, and the second when the recruitment window opens.

Please note that many positions have no advance warning however and jobs are simply posted when the application window opens.

I want to be a mounted officer / dog handler

To work in any of the specialist areas in policing such as these, you have to join as a new recruit and go through the training to become a police constable. After you have completed approximately two years and assuming you have passed your probation, then you can apply for vacancies in specialist teams.

I want to offer my services as a translator

Most forces use agencies on an "as needed" basis. For regular work you would be better registering with one of these agencies, as forces rarely employ full or part time translators.
