Fancy a job as a police constable? Time is running out to apply


There’s just one week left for people across Gedling borough to apply to join Nottinghamshire Police as a Police Constable, as applications close on Friday, March 24.

Police officers have one of the toughest, most demanding jobs there is; yet it is also one of the most rewarding.

If you think you’ve got what it takes to become a police officer, Nottinghamshire Police wants to hear from you.

Chief Constable Craig Guildford said: “I want Nottinghamshire Police to be an employer of choice – I want to retain good people and attract new talent into the organisation.

“I very much want to ensure that this aspect of our organisational and operational effectiveness is promoted in a way which sees local jobs for local people and makes us better at both what we do and how we do it.”

The force welcomed their latest cohort last week, as new PCs from Cohort 41 passed out in front of family and friends.

EXCITED: The force welcomed seven new PCs at their passing-out parade earlier today at Force Headquarters.

An excited PC Daniel Miller said immediately after the inspection: “I am very excited to get out there, having been a PCSO previously. I am looking forward to the new challenges.

“I am very happy and very proud. It’s been a long two years in training, but finally getting to this stage, it’s been tough, but worth it.

“I would say to anyone thinking about applying to become a PC, just give it a go. It’s been great for me so far and as a PCSO. It’s very different, so just give it a go.”

PC Robyn Cooke was equally enthusiastic for the start of her new career and revealed that she is very much part of the policing family.

She said: “I’m nervously excited and very proud to be here, especially with my family watching me pass out.

“My Dad and Grandad were both Notts cops, so I’ve always wanted to be an officer. I’m very proud to have my Grandad’s old collar number. My Dad really wanted me to do this, so it’s a fantastic day.

“If you are thinking about applying, just go for it. If you fail on something, then just continue to work hard and you could be our next recruit.”

Please also note Nottinghamshire Police are accepting transferred applications from applicants who are currently in the recruitment process for Police Constable with another force and have achieved a minimum score of 50% at assessment centre and a minimum score of 9 at CBQ.
