Avon and Somerset Police open police officer recruitment and are urging people from diverse backgrounds to consider a career in policing.
Recruitment opens online from the 25 February and police officers will be providing face-to-face drop-in sessions at job centres across the force area. No registration is required, and officers will be available for an informal chat to discuss the role, and guide interested individuals through the recruitment process.
Police officers will be available for the following recruitment drop-ins:
- Easton Job Centreplus at 10am – 12 noon on Wednesday 13 February
- Bristol city centre Jobcentreplus at 1pm – 3pm on Wednesday 20 February.
In addition to the police officer posts available in 2013, applicants will also be considered for our 2014/15 recruitment wave as well.
Director of HR Emma Zeeman said: “We recognise that in order to be effective our force must be representative of the communities we serve. That’s why we’re actively encouraging people from all backgrounds to consider a career in policing. I’m delighted that we’re in a position to recruit new officers who will join our existing 3,000 officers to help the communities of Avon and Somerset feel safe and be safe.”
Chief Inspector Norman Pascal comments, “Working as a police officer has given me an education and a good standard of living. I’ve been an officer for over twenty years now and I would definitely recommend it as a career.”
