Additional information and eligibility:
This role is offered as a three-year secondment to serving police officers at the rank of Constable or Sergeant, who have their chief officer's approval. Chief Officer's approval must be of NPCC rank, i.e., CC, ACC or DCC. Approval for secondment must accompany an application.
Police officers applying for a secondment opportunity must have a current vetting level of recruitment vetting (RV) as a minimum.
Prior to submitting an application please contact your force vetting department to check your vetting level.
Central service conditions may apply for police officers and staff.
Temporary promotion is not available.
New entrants are normally appointed at the pay scale minimum for their grade although there is limited scope for negotiation based on skills and experience.
Existing staff and civil servants should note that, if successful, their salary on appointment would normally be determined by applying the College's usual salary progression rules. If the appointment is on level transfer, your substantive salary (excluding any allowances) will remain unchanged (unless it exceeds the maximum stated within the College pay band) and unless the successful candidate's current salary is below the relevant College grade minimum. If the appointment is on temporary or substantive promotion, the successful candidate's salary will be increased by the appropriate promotion percentage or moved to the relevant College grade minimum, whichever is the greater.
This post is open to UK nationals, Commonwealth citizens, EEA nationals of other member states and certain non-EEA family members. There must be no employment restriction or time limit on your permitted stay in the UK. You should normally have been resident in the United Kingdom for at least three years, and in some cases five or even 10 years, preceding your application due to the requirement to have a checkable history for security vetting purposes. If you answer 'No' to the questions regarding nationality, then it is unlikely your application will be pursued. If you are unsure as to your eligibility on any of these points, please contact us for advice.
College posts are subject to both national security vetting and force vetting requirements.
