Police Officers

Sussex Police has launched its recruitment for 2 new programmes to bring people with more diverse backgrounds and new perspectives into policing. 

The Direct Entry programme nationally will see 20 experienced leaders from the private, public and third sectors to join policing as a Superintendent while the graduate Fast Track programme is seeking 82 recruits to be promoted from Constable to Inspector within three years.  Sussex Police are looking to recruit 1 Direct Entry Superintendent and 3 Fast Track Constable to Inspectors in the first year.

Fast Track Programme

Location:      Sussex

Salary:           Constable starting £19,191 per annum (as at April 2014)

                        Inspector starting £47,256 per annum (as at April 2014)

Are you a graduate, police special or police staff looking for a rewarding career with progression? Do you have the ambition, determination and vision to accelerate into the senior ranks of the police service? If so, the Fast Track programme may be for you.

The Fast Track (Police Constable to Inspector) is an accelerated 3 year promotion and development programme which equips the most talented graduates with the skills, knowledge and experience to advance to the rank of Inspector within 3 years.

Although exciting, intense and varied, being a police officer is not a 9 to 5 job. It involves unpredictable hours, potentially long shifts and working in situations with high risk - you will be expected to tackle danger head on while other members of the public turn away. You will have to justify and account for your actions to make sure you are working ethically, proportionally and to the standards the public expect. 

The 3 year programme will be a blend of classroom learning, delivered at regional training centres, and operational training and development in Sussex. Candidates will be supported to learn what it takes to become a police officer and to quickly put that into practice.

You need a 2:1 degree to be eligible to apply. To apply please on the following link; https://static.wcn.co.uk/company/wyp/COP.html

Please be advised the applications are kindly being hosted by West Yorkshire Police on their WCN system.

Shortlisted candidates will be invited to interview and interviews are likely to take place weeks commencing 9th and 16th June 2014. Candidates successful at interview will progress to the next stage of the selection process which is a 2 day National Assessment Centre run by College of Policing; this will take place between 14th and 26th July 2014. Sussex Police will be informed of the outcome of the Assessment Centre in early August and will confirm successful candidates shortly afterwards. Appointments into these roles will commence on Monday 29th September 2014

Direct Entry (Superintendent) Programme

Location:      National training to be delivered by College of Policing

                      Followed by posting within Sussex area

Salary:           £62,922 per annum (as at April 2014)

Are you an exceptional senior manager with proven experience in turning strategy into reality, setting standards across a department or organisation?  Do you bring innovative thinking to your role? Does your leadership inspire confidence and loyalty? Do you have the ambition and ability to help shape policing?

The Sussex Police Direct Entry (Superintendent) Programme is designed to attract highly talented leaders from outside the police service to come into policing at a senior rank, bringing with them fresh perspectives and new ideas. Candidates will be trained over 18 months; given coaching and mentoring to equip them with the skills to excel as Superintendents and beyond.

As a direct entrant at the rank of Superintendent, you will already be confident leading teams with focus and vision and comfortable making tough decisions under pressure. You will need to be fit and healthy, possess a high level of personal integrity and hold an exceptional ability to understand and influence people from all walks of life.

To apply please click on the following link; https://static.wcn.co.uk/company/wyp/COP.html

Shortlisted candidates will be invited to interview. Before the interview takes place, shortlisted candidates will be invited to attend a Familiarisation Day at Sussex Police Headquarters in Lewes.  This is not part of the selection process but is an opportunity to hear from colleagues across the force about what is happening in Sussex now and in the future. Interviews will then follow, likely during weeks commencing 23rd and 30th June 2014. Candidates successful at interview will progress to the next stage of the selection process which is a 3 day National Assessment Centre run by College of Policing; this will take place between 14th and 26th July 2014. Sussex Police will be informed of the outcome of the Assessment Centre in early August and we will confirm successful candidates shortly afterwards.
