Police Officer Recruitment 2014

Recommended Posts

Surprised I hadn't seen a thread on this, so unless there's one elsewhere Derbyshire have opened for police officer recruitment on Tuesday 6th May however be quick as it closes on Friday 9th May

http://www.derbyshire.police.uk/Careers/A-Career-With-Us/Officer-Recruitment/Police-Officer-Vacancies.aspx

The Process

The first stage of the process is a compulsory online assessment which needs to be completed by all external applicants. This consists of three stages:

Stage 1: Online registration and a questionnaire to check you are eligible

Stage 2: Online test to assess whether you have the skills to be a police officer

Stage 3: Online test to assess whether you have the aptitude to be an excellent police officer

All candidates who demonstrate in Stage 1 that they are eligible to work as a police officer will be invited to take the assessment test at Stage 2. As we only have a limited number of application forms to allocate for places on courses in 2015 onwards, we are looking for the best candidates. Those who score well on the Stage 2 test will be invited to continue to Stage 3 and those who score most highly on Stage 3 will be allocated an application form.

To apply, you must complete Stage 1 of the online registration and eligibility questionnaire between 10am on Tuesday, May 6, 2014, and 3pm on Friday, May 9, 2014.

I have done the eligibility test only to be told that I don't meet the criteria because I don't have a formal level 3 qualification. I emailed recruitment stating that Im a special constable and asked if this was sufficient to which they said no as the winsor report states new pc applicant's must have a level 3 qualification or above.

I then emailed them back saying that it also states experience as a PCSO or Special Constable is also sufficient. The reply I got was that there's nothing they can do as they are following the rules of the report but I don't feel like they are. If they are going to follow something at least follow it properly.

I thought the police service was all about equal opportunities so them saying that somebody with an A-level in woodwork is more suitable to do the role of PC as me that actually does that role on a voluntary basis is bending the rules to suite I think.

Unlucky mate, plenty more times to apply. How did they tell you? Post, phone, e-mail? No feedback is rubbish!
