Wiltshire Police are looking for new recruits (from 18 Nov)

Recommended Posts


On Tuesday 18 November 2014 Wiltshire Police will once again be offering opportunities for people who are seeking a career as a police officer.

The last recruitment campaign took place in November 2013. The on-line application will be open for eleven days until Friday 28 November, so people can apply any time within that period.

Wiltshire Police are running another recruitment process this year in their search for dedicated people with the right skills, knowledge and experience to join the devoted team of police officers who provide an excellent policing service across the county.

Chief Constable Pat Geenty said; “I am delighted that we are in a position to recruit additional police officers. Although the service is facing many challenges, policing remains an excellent career choice.

“It offers an exceptionally diverse career in public service, offering individuals the chance to make a real difference to local communities.”

Police and Crime Commissioner for Wiltshire and Swindon, Angus Macpherson said: “We are looking for people who have a clear commitment to serve the public.

“We want to recruit people of high integrity who can willingly sign up to the Values and Behaviours which are now part of the DNA of Wiltshire Police.

“We are looking for intelligent people who will be conscientious in carrying out their duties.

“I hope that the force will select candidates who possess emotional intelligence because they will be dealing with a wide range of people and often at times of stress or personal crisis.

“We are also once again encouraging applications from minority ethnic communities, as they are presently under-represented within Wiltshire Police.”

Applications are welcomed from both current Wiltshire Police staff and from members of the public.

Applicants must be aged between 18 and 57 and be able to prove the following qualifications:

Level 3 qualification (A Level Grade E) or above, in any subject or equivalent
GCSEs A*- C in English Language or Literature or equivalent, CSE English Grade 1, O Level English Grade C or above
GCSE Maths A* - E, or functional/numeracy skills Level 2 or equivalent.
The initial salary will be £19,383 per year as specified in the Winsor recommendations.

In addition, all applicants must:

Be physically fit and in good health - you will be required to pass a medical examination and fitness test
Have good unaided vision and must not suffer from any morbid eye conditions. Severe colour vision deficiencies would not pass the eyesight test
Be a British Citizen or a member of the European Community, European Economic Area, Commonwealth Citizen or be a foreign national who is resident in the UK, free of restrictions and with unrestricted leave to remain
Have lived in the UK for three years prior to the date the application is made
Hold a full UK driving licence by the date of appointment (start date)

All applicants should also be aware that:

There is no maximum or minimum height restriction
They will have samples of their DNA and their fingerprints taken as part of the vetting process and a search against any outstanding crimes will be made before an appointment is made
All police officer candidates will be subject to alcohol and drugs misuse testing before an appointment is made
If you are or ever have been a member of the BNP or similar organisations (Combat 18, National Front etc.) your application will be rejected
Convictions or cautions will not necessarily preclude you from appointment. It will depend on their nature and the circumstances of the offence. Failure to disclose convictions or cautions will, however, result in your application being terminated
Tattoos will not necessarily preclude you from appointment. However there are limitations on the design and location of the tattoo. This will be assessed in the application process.
Applicants must apply via the online pre-assessment tool which can only be hosted on the following browsers; Internet Explorer 7 or above, Firefox 3.6, Google Chrome 8, Safari 5 (Mac and PC). The online pre-assessment tool has not been developed for mobile platforms (iPads, tablets, iPhones etc.) so applicants will need to use a laptop or desktop computer.
