DIFFERENT PEOPLE DOING OUTSTANDING WORK
C.£100 PER DAY + REASONABLE TRAVEL EXPENSES
Inclusive and diverse, the MPS is your police service. We aim to deliver quality policing to everyone. So we listen and respond to the millions of people who visit, live and work in London. And we’re proud to reflect them in the 50,000 people we employ to make London safe for everybody.
To become a Police Officer or Metropolitan Special Constable (MSC), applicants undergo rigorous evaluation at assigned assessment days. In order to identify people with the right knowledge, understanding skills and behaviours, we’re looking for more members of the community to become trained assessors and help to carry out this vital work.
Working on a casual basis of five to six consecutive days that will include occasional Saturday work, you’ll need to commit to a minimum of 25 days per year. As well as objectively assessing and evaluating candidate performance against a set of competencies, providing integral support for training scenarios will also be part of your role. You’ll make sure everything is ready for the exercise, assist fellow role play actors and give them performance feedback. You’ll also complete and collate collected evidence and contribute to briefings and debriefs. In doing so, you’ll play an important part in the development and future of the MPS.
Prior to an appointment being made, we’ll require you to successfully complete an assessor training course. You’ll also need a thorough understanding of race and diversity issues. A strong communicator with an excellent command of English – both spoken and written – you’ll combine sound judgement with the ability to deliver and receive constructive feedback. Confident and tenacious, your flexible approach to working will be vital.
To reflect the diversity of the community we serve, we are particularly keen to attract a wide variety of assessors, including those from minority backgrounds.
We will be holding recruitment events on Friday 23 January 2015 at West Brompton where you can meet our assessors and gain an understanding of the role. The events will start at 10am, 12pm & 2pm. To book your place, please email CommunityAssessorsEnquires@met.police.uk by Friday 16 January 2015 with your preferred time.
If you are not able to attend the event, please visit our website to download a role specific information pack and application form.
Completed applications must be returned by 2 February 2015.
You must have been a resident of the London area for three out of the past five years. You must also be at least 18 years of age to apply.
Please note that we are no longer accepting applications from MPS employees/ex-MPS employees or employees/ex employees from other constabularies.
We view diversity as fundamental to our success. To tackle today’s complex policing challenges, we need a workforce made up from all of London’s communities. Applications from across the community are therefore essential.
