Unleash your potential. Be a part of the future of policing.


Being a police officer with #teamnp is a unique career filled with reward and challenge. No two days on the front line are the same, and it will be your job to protect the vulnerable, support victims or crime and to build trust and forge valuable relationships with the diverse communities you serve.


We are looking to recruit individuals who live and work by our values, and those who will be committed to our purpose to “keep people safe and fight crime”. This is a career where you can truly make a difference and change people’s lives every day.


Ways into policing


Our entry routes into policing are largely focused around your academic qualifications and previous experience. Whether you already have a degree, you’re looking to gain one or you’re looking to become a uniformed officer without training for a higher education qualification, there are several ways into the world of frontline policing. You can access further information about our entry routes here.


Applications for all entry routes are now open. The first step of your application will be to attend a mandatory information event. Here, you’ll gain insight into what working as a detective or uniformed police officer at Northumbria Police is really like, find out more about the application process and how to prepare for the role, eligibility requirements, police officer pay & benefits, and you’ll have the opportunity to speak to current officers about life at #teamnp.


You can register to attend one of our upcoming events by clicking apply below and filling in our short form, we will then contact you to book a place. Once you’ve attended an information session, we will send you a full application form to your registered email address.


If you apply during our current campaign, you can expect a start date in either March or September 2025 and we will advise on which date you’re aligned to during your application process.
