Applying for the role
When you apply to North Wales Police as a Police Constable, you’ll complete a number of stages. These stages are listed below to help you understand the process you’re about to embark on. We value applications in English or Welsh. All candidates are required to successfully pass every stage of the process to be recruited as a Police Constable.
The first stage of the process gives you an opportunity to register your interest in applying for the role of Police Constable and helps start to build a relationship between North Wales Police and yourself. Your registration of interest will enable us to provide you with all the information you need to make a decision as to if the role of Police Officer is for you as well as being able to offer you Positive Action support.
We’re an equal opportunities employer and are committed to attracting, supporting and developing a workforce representative of the communities that we police and serve. We strive to ensure that all personnel practices, including recruitment, are applied consistently and fairly and as such we expect all staff involved in the recruitment process to share this commitment.
Therefore, throughout the recruitment process, the members of staff and assessors involved are trained to the highest standard, ensuring that the principles of the Equality Act are adhered to. This is supported through our Standards of Practice and Unconscious Bias training that is delivered to all of our assessors.
Positive Action support is available for groups of people that are currently underrepresented in the Police Constable role; this includes people of Black, Asian or other Minority Ethnic backgrounds, disabled people, LGBT+ people, people from religious minority groups and women.
Recruitment timelines from application to appointment are subject to pre-employment checks and available start dates. At the end of each stage of the process you’ll be notified whether or not you’ve been successful and eligible to proceed to the next step and we will discuss with you available start dates so you can plan accordingly.
