Staffordshire Police open recruitment process for new officers for 2016


Staffordshire Police are today (Monday 24 August) starting the recruitment process for a number of new police constables to join the force in 2016.

Chief Constable Jane Sawyers said “Few jobs are more rewarding and challenging than that of a police officer. From day one you’ll be helping to fight crime and protect the public.

“As a police constable, you’ll have the opportunity to learn new skills, meet people and set out on a career path that could see you specialise as a firearms officer, dog handler, traffic officer, detective or the trusted, familiar face of policing in the community.

“We need people who are good communicators with a calm, confident personality; problem solvers; team players; and people who easily build relationships, respect other people and appreciate views from communities across the county. We find these in people from all communities and we therefore welcome applications from individuals from all backgrounds who can demonstrate these skills and attributes.”

Those who want to become a police officer must complete an on-line pre-application questionnaire which can be found here. Those who are eligible to apply after completing the pre-application questionnaire
will be sent an application pack.

The pre-application questionnaire will close on Friday 4th Sept at midday, all those wishing to apply must have completed this process before the deadline. We strongly recommend that anyone who is considering applying, should spend plenty of time on the questionnaire. It not only confirms eligibility to apply, but also helps applicants to understand some of the demands of the role of police constable.
