Do you want to work for North Wales Police, but not as a front line officer? Have you considered a police staff role?
We have a huge range of police staff opportunities across the Force, so you can pursue an exciting career whatever your chosen field. Working alongside frontline officers, police staff keep the force operating smoothly.
Whether you assist with investigations or process payroll, everyone has a part to play. From intelligence analysts, to press officers, to crime scene investigators - everyone plays a key role in making North Wales a safer place.
We offer full-time or part-time roles, and all police staff enjoy these benefits:
At least 25 days annual leave (pro rata for part-time roles)
Option to become a member of UNISON, the public service union
Discounts from various retailers via the Blue Light Scheme
We are proud to be part of the Living Wage movement as an accredited Living Wage Employer. This means that every member of staff in our organisation earns not just the minimum wage but the real Living Wage.
The Living Wage is an hourly rate set independently and updated annually, based on the cost of living in the UK. We believe that every member of staff deserves a Living Wage, because a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay. You can find out more about the Living Wage by visiting the official website.
