Police Recruitment UK

How2Become.com have now teamed up with UK police officer recruitment staff to bring you IMMEDIATE notification of when your local police force is recruiting!  We will email you as soon as any police officer job is listed, meaning you will be the first person to be notified so that you can submit your application as soon as possible.

In England and Wales there are a total of around 128,000 police officers. These police officers have been recruited from all areas of society, although, to apply to become a UK police officer you must be either a British, EU (or other states within the EEA) or a Commonwealth citizen. Foreign nationals can also apply to join the UK police as long as they have indefinite leave to remain in the UK.

Our essential job alert service will ensure that you never miss a potential vacancy. If you want to apply for your dream career, the opportunity is there. Reach out and take it with both hands!


The Metropolitan Police are London’s single biggest employer. They provide nearly 32,000 jobs for police officers alone! This is even more relevant when you realise that, in all the other police forces in England and Wales, there are around 128,000 police officers combined.

It is estimated that over 65,000 people apply each year to become a police officer in the UK, and 75% of those people never make it past the initial application stage. That’s right, 75% of people fall at the first hurdle. And what of the other 25%? Well, unless they’ve revised carefully, they’re unlikely to fare much better. With statistics like the above, it’s essential that you give yourself as much of an advantage over the competition as possible. You need all the help you can get, to put yourself above other candidates. With the assistance of our job alerts service, you can do that! There’s no need to go out searching for vacancies, when we can provide you with everything you need, straight to your email.

Spend less time searching, and more time revising, and your chances of passing will skyrocket. We’ll bring the very latest information on police recruitment, directly to you.

Police officers are some of the most respected and trusted professionals within the UK. As a police officer, your primary objective is to build trust with the public, and safeguard the public from crime and other such unlawful activity, whilst acting in a way that exudes professionalism, decency, and integrity.

Police officers work closely with a number of organisations and bodies, such as local councils, prison services, social workers, local businesses, and trustees, to build good public relations and secure a safe community for everyone.

Police Constabularies

The recruitment window for UK police officers can sometimes be as little as one day. If you are not monitoring the forty three Police constabulary websites regularly, then the chances are you are going to miss your opportunity to apply!

Each UK police constabulary has its own recruitment process and selection policy – however nationally agreed competency tests are applied across the board for all police forces. Finding out when a police force is recruiting requires constant monitoring of the individual police forces and with so much competition out there, it is important to apply to a position as soon as it becomes available.

Checking for current and future campaigns is a constant process that takes up a lot of time. How2become’s Police Job Alert Service does all the hard work for you, and we will notify you as soon as a job position becomes available. Being the first to know will put you above the competition in applying to become a police officer.

With the help of our excellent service, you can fast track your career!
