MET Police Careers

The Metropolitan Police are one of the most respected organisations in the UK, and are by far the biggest police employer in the United Kingdom. With this in mind, the competition to join the MET Police is extremely fierce. There are thousands of other people in the UK who will be applying for the exact same position as you, and that means you need to put yourself ahead of these people, and make your qualities stand out.

Our Metropolitan Police seminar will give you all the information you need regarding the selection process, the assessments, and how you can prepare yourself for the tests.

The MET Police ‘Day 1’ assessment is designed so that 50% of candidates FAIL. Those that fail have to wait 6 months before they can re-apply. Therefore, it is absolutely vital that you pass your ‘Day 1’ on your first attempt. This is why we have set up this dedicated, 3-hour MET Police careers seminar in the heart of London, delivered by former MET Police recruitment trainer David Bebb, who has 30 years of experience in the Police.


Metropolitan Police Recruitment Expert Dave Bebb

‘I’m proud to say I worked for the Metropolitan Police Service for 30 years. During that long career, I performed several varied and interesting roles. One of these was in its recruitment branch. I worked there for several years as a recruiter and specialist trainer. As an expert in police assessment centres my main role was to write and deliver ‘Pre-Assessment Centre Workshops’ to certain candidates. The MET ran these courses for a simple but very good reason – those that attended had a significantly better chance of passing their ‘Day 1’ than those who didn’t. This seminar has been curated to achieve even better results and will give you a fantastic overview of your ‘Day 1’ with the Metropolitan Police. 

I look forward to seeing you at our next seminar.’

The ‘Day 1’ Assessment Centre

‘Day 1’ is by far the hardest part of the whole selection process. It is difficult and certainly stressful, which is why many promising candidates fail it. Why? Simply, they’re going into the assessment centre blind! 

Our 3-hour MET Police careers seminar will give a fantastic overview of the whole day, including what to expect and how to acquire practice resources ahead of your ‘Day 1’.

  • Our trainer is an expert in this subject having written and delivered this type of seminar on behalf of the Metropolitan Police;
  • His pre-assessment centre workshop was proven to increase candidates’ scores at their ‘Day 1’, and increase their chances of becoming a MET police officer;
  • Every extra mark that you gain is crucial.

This seminar is also great even if you haven’t yet applied to join the MET police, but intend to in the near future. It will give you a great overview of what to expect once you have applied. Crucially it will identify the skills, competencies and values that you will be assessed on, well in advance of your ‘Day 1’ so that you have plenty of time to prepare.

For many candidates this seminar really will be the difference between joining the MET police or not. Book your place now and we’ll help you to land the career of your dreams.
