Register for one of our seminars

The Force 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.

Please see below for locations of the recruitment sessions, to attend please register your attendance at the Eventbrite link below.

The force has two upcoming recruitment information sessions both at Nottingham City Council, the Old Market Square, Nottingham.

Both events will take place at 6-8pm on Wednesday 6 November 2019 and Thursday 14 November 2019.

Individuals must attend one of these information sessions in order to be sent the application form.

Positive Action seminars

These events - which support our work to promote Positive Action - are specifically for people from diverse backgrounds to come and find out about policing, how to apply and the support they can receive.

Case Study - Haleema Naseer

One person who has already benefitted from this support is 23-year-old Haleema Naseer from Nottingham.

The former Nottingham Trent University Design student graduated in 2018 and used her degree to get a job in London as a Junior Men's Designer with Ted Baker.

Despite loving that role and the opportunity to leave her close family, she soon realised she had to make a career change and apply for the police back home, she made the biggest decision of her life and applied for the force's Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship.

Case Study - PC Andy Buss

Police Constable Andy Buss has encouraged others who struggle in the application process to attend the force's upcoming recruitment information and support sessions.

The 32-year-old spent ten years trying to get into Nottinghamshire Police and eventually passed on his ninth attempt after attending the sessions which guided him through the complex process.

PC Buss joined the force earlier this year and is now based at Beeston Police Station.

He said: "I've been applying for the past 10 years, nine different attempts, but I finally passed and joined the force earlier this year. I had to wait for the opportunities to arise and keep persisting with my applications.

"Most of it was because I failed the application stage. I've got to be honest, I'm not great at answering questions as part of the process. I'm a very direct person and I wasn't answering the questions the way they should have been.

"The application form wanted more detail and more examples and unfortunately I wasn't very good at doing that.

"My message is if you fail to get in, just keep trying. If it's what you want to do, just be persistent. Just keep going, it's definitely worth it.

"I'd definitely recommend attending the recruitment support sessions, without them I'd still be applying.  If you are anything like me you won't get in without attending them."
