Cumbria Police to host recruitment open evening

Cumbria Police are hosting a recruitment open evening for members of the public who wish to learn more about the role of PCs and PCSOs. We welcome people from across the county to attend and in particular encourage applicants from West Cumbria.

We are looking to recruit 108 Police Constables, 20 Police Community Support Officers and 36 Special Constables over the coming financial year.

Applications are currently being accepted and the closing date for all applications is the 19th February 2016.

The open evening will take place on Tuesday 9th February 2016 from 6.30pm-7.30pm at St Michaels Church, Falcon Place, Workington.

The open evening will offer people interested in these roles the opportunity to meet Superintendent Gary Slater, Chief Inspector Matt Kennerley and Detective Inspector Dan StQuintin from the West Cumbria policing team. Presentations will be given about the roles of PC and PCSO and other specialist positions within the Constabulary and there will be a chance to look at police equipment and uniform. Staff from Cumbria Constabulary Human Resource department will also be in attendance to offer advice on the application process.

Superintendent Gary Slater said “This is a fantastic opportunity for potential candidates interested in a career in policing to learn about the organisation and get advice from experienced officers on all the roles available. The officers will be able to share their experiences and are passionate about helping others get into a career they enjoy.

“Our aim is to attract local candidates to apply, so we want to urge anyone who is interested to come along to the open evening”
