Police Officer - Specialist Transferees/Rejoiners - 1881806, - Ref:1881806


Greater Manchester Police (GMP) is a tremendously powerful force for good in our communities. We’re an organisation that comprises a great number of officers and staff who are committed, professional, compassionate and courageous, who do things every single day that most either could not, or would not do.
We’re looking for hard-working, dedicated individuals who will join us on our mission to rapidly move GMP into a place where it is objectively recognised as a force that does the basics brilliantly.
We are here to take the fight to criminals, to keep people and their families safe from those who would do them harm and to work with others to solve problems in our communities to reduce and prevent offending.
With a new Chief Constable; strengthened executive leadership; clear direction and a renewed commitment to giving everything we can to improve services to our communities, there has never been a better time to join team GMP.

About Greater Manchester

Greater Manchester is one of the largest policing areas within England and Wales covering an area of nearly 500 square miles. It is home to approximately 2.8 million people, forming 1.2 million households. This makes Greater Manchester the second largest city region in the UK and home to almost 5% of the UK population.

While the region has some rural and remote areas, it is a predominantly urban conurbation that comprises the two cities of Manchester and Salford, surrounded by eight large metropolitan areas which are: Bolton, Bury, Oldham, Rochdale, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford, and Wigan.

Although a single functioning economic area, one of the hallmarks of Greater Manchester is its great variety and diversity: whether in its people (its residents, student populations, those who travel in for work, and those who choose to visit); or its places (its neighbourhoods, town centres, amenities, cultural attractions and green spaces).

Please note that you must be employed by a Home Office Force in order to apply.

Regrettably, we cannot accept applications from officers working for the Civil Nuclear Constabulary (CNC).

The Equality Act 2010 makes it unlawful to discriminate against a disabled person in all areas of employment, including recruitment. The Police Service welcomes people with disabilities and will do its best to make reasonable adjustments to the working arrangements and/ or the working environment providing it is possible to do so.

If you have a disability and you require support with your application, please let us know so we can consider and support you with any reasonable adjustments you may require.

Should you require reasonable adjustments during the recruitment process, please let us know during the selection process.
