A career at Northumbria Police is like no other. We are passionate about where we live and what we do, we deliver exceptional support to our communities and we work together to make our local area a safer place for us all. Every single person at Northumbria Police is valued for their amazing contribution – and we are all part of something truly special. 


Our Business Support team keep things running smoothly for all of us here at Northumbria Police. They are a large team covering various services, including maintenance, health and safety, and supporting Front Line Policing. We’ve got a great opportunity to join the Business Support team as a Cleaner, where you’ll play an integral part in keeping our stations clean, safe, and functional. 


Unlike your typical cleaning role, you’ll be working behind the scenes in some of our operational police stations, community hubs and operational custody suites. You’ll take pride in your work and be part of a fantastic team who work hard to achieve great results for our Police staff and officers. It’s a busy role – with a great sense of achievement at the end of each shift. 


What will I be doing?

• Using specialist equipment to clean wash rooms and kitchens

Vacuuming and mopping floors

Emptying bins and other general office cleaning duties

Maintaining up to date knowledge of health and safety legislation and complying with cleaning safety standards


This is a really important role in our Police Force, so we are looking for someone who takes pride in what they do. You don’t need to have been a cleaner before – you just need a willingness to learn, the ability to work alone and as part of a team. It’s also essential that you have a reasonable level of fitness and that you are punctual and reliable. 


What are the benefits?

In return for your dedication and commitment, we offer 24 days’ leave, excluding bank holidays, increasing to 29 days for 5 years+ service.  We support our people inside and out of work – offering a very competitive pension scheme, and discounts on shopping and eating out thanks to the Blue Light Card. And to take care of your physical and mental well-being, we’ve invested in extensive paid sick leave, trained mental health first aiders on-site, an employee advice service and access to gyms in some stations.  



We offer a competitive hourly rate and you will be provided with a police staff uniform.
