Police force looking for new recruits
WILTSHIRE Police is set to begin recruiting more officers in the next few weeks.
The force intends to recruit officers to create a pool of applicants to service its vacancies over the next three years.
Applicants must be aged between 18 and 57 and if successful will begin later this year or early 2014, on a starting salary of £19,000.
The application process takes about 46 weeks from the initial application stage to the date employment will begin. Candidates must live within Wiltshire, Avon and Somerset, Gloucestershire, Devon and Cornwall, Thames Valley, Dorset, Hampshire or south Wales in order to apply.
Chief Constable Patrick Geenty said: “I am delighted that we are in a position to open our recruitment for police officers. Although the service is facing many challenges, policing remains an excellent career choice.
“It offers an exceptionally diverse career in public service, offering individuals the chance to make a real difference to local communities.”
An online application form is due to be posted on the force’s website, which will be closed once the required levels of interest have been met.
