Your salary will increase each year up to over £54,000 within seven years.

Regular training, events and skills sessions. We offer development and coaching from our Performance and Development Coaches who you will have access to on the programme. There will also be regular training, events, and skills sessions to ensure you are continuously learning and developing.

Personal support and advice

Once you have been offered a position on our programme, you will have a dedicated Recruitment Officer who will offer support and advice for you on your journey right the way up to your start date. Your Recruitment Officer will assist you with all stages of your onboarding into force: your vetting, medical tests, fitness tests, references, and induction days. As well as this, our curriculum team will be on-hand to help you with your pre-academy core learning.

Financial services discounts

There are various partner organisations who work with the police service to offer a variety of financial services including saving, investment and protection products, as well as discounts and subsidies. Many major high street stores, retail outlets and other national organisations offer discounts and special deals to police officers. Most police forces also provide access to a number of subsidised leisure and sporting activities as well.

Flexible working

The police service is an emergency service operating 24/7 and 365 days a year. However, it is always the intention of the police service to take your individual religious and cultural needs into account so you can fit your work around your personal commitments.


You’ll start with 22 days paid annual holiday, rising to 30 days a year with length of service. This is on top of public holidays and four days off after working your four-day shift which can include nights. You can also expect other forms of leave including maternity, paternity and adoption leave and the option of taking a career break of up to five years.
