Things to consider

Whilst not essential prior work experience in any type of role is preferred but not essential. This apprenticeship will not start until 9th September 2024. Once you have received a provisional offer of an apprenticeship, you will be required to undergo a full DBS background check before a formal offer can be made. Derbyshire Constabulary particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic candidates as this group is underrepresented within our organisation. It’s a priority for us to have a workforce which reflects the communities we serve. The apprenticeship placement is within a civilian role and not for Operational Police Officer roles. Formal interviews will be held during the middle of May at Force HQ to allow time for the full DBS checks to be completed in time for the 9th September start date
