A recruitment push for new police officers in Staffordshire has started.

The campaign, ‘A job like no other’, encourages people to apply for a new police officer programme which will run through 2020.

New recruits will complete on the job training, whilst also studying for a professional qualification in a partnership with Staffordshire University.

Justine Kenny, the force’s director of people and resources, said: “We really want to see a diverse and wide range of applicants for these critical roles in our community. We’d encourage those who haven’t considered a career in policing to find out more about the job.

“Our officers play a vital role in ensuring that the communities of Staffordshire are kept safe.

"Few jobs can be more rewarding than that of a police officer, from day one you'll be making a difference.”

Successful recruits will join Staffordshire Police as an officer through one of two new entry routes and Staffordshire University will deliver the course and qualifications.

The Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship offers a three-year apprenticeship programme with both on and off-the-job learning, leading to a degree in Professional Policing Practice.

The Degree Holder Entry Programme is aimed at existing degree holders of any subject area and offers a two-year practice-based programme after which individuals receive a level six graduate diploma in Professional Policing Practice.
