Talent Support

The police are the public and the public are the police.

Nottinghamshire Police want a workforce of highly skilled, motivated and engaging staff, and we need our workforce to be representative of the public we serve so that we can provide the best service to our communities.

What is Positive Action?

We can't provide an innovative, authentic, open and understanding service without being representative of the public we serve. This is why we need to give everyone a fair chance and level the playing field. Teams of mixed gender, ethnicity, physical ability, age and sexual orientation are more representative of our customers. They offer a variety of viewpoints and a wider range of experience, which improves decision making and problem-solving.

This doesn’t stop at the recruitment stage. If we want our service to be representative, we need our leaders at every level of the organisation, including the top, to be representative. That is why we have various initiatives in force to support our workforce through promotions, lateral movement and their careers. We are proud to have a number of support networks providing support to under-represented groups.

These include:

  • Black Police Association
  • Nottinghamshire Encouraging Women to Succeed (NEWS)
  • The Network (lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans)
  • Enable, promoting wellbeing in the workplace
  • Christian Police Association
  • Gypsy Roma Traveller Police Association

Talent Support

We want to recruit talented people with a diverse range of skills and experience who are committed to making a difference to the communities that we serve.

Recruiting from the widest pool of people will mean we recruit individuals who can speak other languages, understand other cultures and lifestyles and are willing to use those skills to the benefit of the community and the organisation. A more diverse workforce will build trust and confidence across communities, leading to sharing of information and closer working.

We are not yet fully representative and we are working to address this imbalance. If you are from an under-represented group, we fully encourage you to consider joining our policing family.

You could be the difference we need.

If you are an exceptional individual and think that you are the difference, please contact recruitment@nottinghamshire.police.pnn.uk
