Gloucestershire Police launch recruitment drive with 90 new bobbies to hit the beat

Gloucestershire Constabulary is launching a recruitment campaign which aims to recruit 90 new police officers to the Force over the next 12 months.

The campaign, which launched today, will run until 12pm on Friday 11 October.

The force is committed to the principles of appointments based on merit with openness and transparency of process.

They are also committed to equality of opportunity and welcome applications from all suitably qualified applicants.

In aiming to have a workforce representative of the community they serve, applications from females and members of ethnic minority communities are particularly welcome.

Deputy Chief Constable Jon Stratford said: "The Constabulary is always striving to develop our workforce and we are looking for applicants from all walks of life so that we can be fully representative of the communities that we serve.

"We are looking for individuals who work effectively with others and demonstrate high levels of personal initiative, drive and resilience.

"This campaign gives us the opportunity to address some of the very pressing demands that are faced and ensure that we are able to provide a service that the public require from us.

"Policing is a profession that can offer a great deal of job satisfaction and I encourage anyone who is interested in joining the Constabulary to please submit an application."
