Special Constable Interview

Recommended Posts

Golf Delta


I am currently registered for the Metropolitan Police Special Constable assessment centre on the 25th January. I have been preparing over the past week for the interview attempting to come up with situations I have faced during my experiences which will effectively demonstrate that I possess the qualities they are looking for as well as researching the boroughs I have chosen and just general knowledge about the force. I have also purchased a book recommended from this forum by Richard McMunn: Police Special Constable Interview - Questions and Answers, which have provided a number of answers to competency based questions - these have been very helpful.

However, as I'm sure you're all aware, the key 'Driver Areas' change over recruitment phases and as such the responses aren't specific to the current driver areas for this recruitment phase. The core areas which have been sent through for the assessment on Wednesday are:

- Operational Effectiveness

- Organisational Influence

- Resource Management

Would it be possible for someone to provide me with what they would consider ideal responses (either by PM or via reply) to these areas which will be assessed to ensure my responses and planned previous experiences will tick the boxes required.

Your assistance would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Have you downloaded the driver document? It breaks each down with descriptors of what the MPS considers positive requirements of each. My advice is to split the paragraphs into bullet points and make sure your examples cover the majority of points you identify.
