Can you see yourself as a Staffordshire police officer?


POLICE officer recruitment in Staffordshire is changing and new recruits will join policing as an apprentice or as an existing graduate.

Student officers will learn on the job as well as studying at university for a degree or post graduate diploma whilst they are serving as officers.

Policing is a job like no other and you will need to have a passion for public service, excellent people skills, the ability to build relationships and work in a team and the commitment to make a difference to the lives of the rural and urban communities of Staffordshire.

A Staffordshire Police spokesman said: “We anticipate new student officers joining us in May/June 2019 and onwards and they will train and study over either a two or three year period, depending on which entry route applies.

“New officers will receive a starting salary of between £18k and £23k depending on the entry route, previous qualifications and/or recognised prior learning.

“We are committed to building a vibrant and diverse workforce and particularly welcome applications from under-represented groups within the community. If you are from an under-represented group and would like to discuss your application, please email your contact details to [email protected].”
