Police Officer
Information & Engagement Events:

Whilst recruitment is closed, we would still like to hear from those from our under-represented groups who are interested in embarking on an exciting and rewarding career as a Police Officer. We welcome expressions of interest from women and those who identify themselves as Black, Asian or from a Minority Ethnic background. We would also like to hear from those who live in rural areas across the force and who would like to work away from cities and towns. It takes a great deal of people from different backgrounds and with diverse skills and experiences to serve the force area effectively.

Being a Police Officer

Whether you’re looking for a later-life career change or you’re a fresh out of uni graduate, your Northumbria Police career path could take you in so many directions.

You could choose to specialise as a detective, working in child protection or even as an authorised firearms officer. But whatever your background, we’re all in this for the same reasons: to keep people safe and make a difference.

We’re keen to hear from women and BAME applicants – because it’s the diversity in our force that makes us stronger. Visit our Positive Action page to find out more about the support we can offer.
