September/ October Recruitment

Recommended Posts

Hyper0307

Hi All,

Just wondering if anyone has applied for the current Police Officer openings ( September/ October 2017) in Northumbria?

I have completed the first stage which was some basic details and recieved an email back inviting me to go to an engagement event within the next two weeks. Has anyone had experience of these events within this force that could shed some light on it for me?

Also this is probably a daft question but can anyone set out the way the recruitment process works from that initial registration all the way through till a solid job offer providing your successful at all stages? I've been doing non stop research since I applied and although I've got a fair idea what lies in store I'm still not certain on what is required when etc?

 

Thanks in advance guys :)

Hey. 

I've applied for the Police Constable recruitment with Northumbria this year, yes. 

The Engagement Event is a new stage to the recruitment process which wasn't included last year. I did contact HR to try and get more information from them about what it would include, but they just regurgitated what was already available on the website. I imagine it is just a chance to introduce yourself and ask questions you may have directly to the recruitment team, serving officers etc. 

The recruitment process is a long one and can take anywhere from 6-12 months (even 12-24 months in some cases but I haven't heard of this ever happen at Northumbria). Last year there was a pre-application document available which gave more information on each stage. It appears that it has been taken down from the Northumbria Police website now (possibly due to it being outdated with relation to the additional recruitment stages introduced this year) but I did download it last year, which I've attached to this post, if you're still interested in having a read - just bare in mind that it won't include the newly introduced stages.

I hope this helps you out a little mate.

Thanks Chris, that's what I was thinking, it is a good step to meet, ask questions and have a chat with the right people. 

Such a long process but I'm just going to take each step as it comes and try to be as ready as I can. Trying to absorb as much information as possible along the way!

Good luck for the process mate!

Team assessment went well, through to SEARCH now! ? What about you? 

I’m not sure what I expected I was so nervous but it kind of did what I thought it would. Total baby step into what SEARCH will be like but any steps a useful one right??

Yes, also made it through. Wasn’t as bad as I thought. As it’s so new it was a step into the unknown, at least the SEARCH has plenty of info and tips floating around.

Got my pre briefing on Monday so hopefully get a date soon after.
