We are launching our first campaign to recruit more officers from diverse backgrounds.
We want our police force to look more like the communities we serve. At the moment just over two per cent of our officers are identified as Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic (BAME).
We offer you a rewarding career where you can serve the community you live in, while preventing and detecting crime, protecting vulnerable people, supporting victims and dealing with criminals.
New constables will start on a salary of £24,518 with the potential to rise to £41,150 within your first seven years.
Thursday 17th January 5.30 - 6.30pm
Essex Police College, St Margaret’s road, Springfield, Chelmsford, CM2 6DS
Are you interested in becoming a Police Constable for Essex Police? As part of our positive action programme, we are holding a pre-application workshop for help and guidance on getting through the early stages of the recruitment process. This session is intended to be of particular support for those from black, Asian and minority ethnic groups.
Our recruitment and diversity and inclusion teams will talk through how to apply for the role of Police Constable – the process, and all the handy tips for your application form.
Please note these are not drop in sessions, they are structured sessions running as follows:
- Question and answer session with current Police Constables (30 mins)
- Presentation on how to complete your application form for Police Constable (20 mins)
- Information regarding support networks and positive action programme (10 mins)
Free parking is available on site at Essex Police College or Orchard car park.
Please note booking is essential on the form below.
All attendees are asked to bring photographic ID to the event (including guests) and note that bag searches will be taking place when you arrive.
Hear what our officers, staff, volunteers, and family members have to say about some of the main misconceptions and barriers that exist between some of our BAME communities and the police.
