Police launch recruitment campaign 13 August 2008

Police officer on patrolTHE Isle of Man Constabulary has launched a campaign to recruit new officers.

A challenging and rewarding career in one of the Island’s frontline services awaits the successful applicants. Candidates must be aged between 18 and a half and 40, meet the entrance criteria and pass an initial fitness test.

Those shortlisted will undergo assessments in September and October in order to gauge their observation, reasoning, English language and inter-personal skills. This will be followed by a one-day assessment at an outward bounds venue involving a number of tests and scenarios relating to the National Competencies required to become a student officer.

Candidates still under consideration for the constable vacancies must then pass a full medical examination. Offer letters will be sent out in November, with a view to the new intake of student officers starting their full police training in January 2009.

Inspector Keith Kinrade, the IoM Constabulary’s Staff Development Manager, said:

‘This is an opportunity to join a dedicated and professional police force which is focussed on promoting community safety through neighbourhood policing. Anybody who believes they have what it takes to be a police constable is urged to submit an application form. The Isle of Man Constabulary can offer a varied, interesting and rewarding career for those who are prepared to work hard towards serving their local community.’

Further details can be gained by calling 631547 between 1pm and 4pm, while an application form and supporting information is available to download from the vacancies section of the Isle of Man Government website. Alternatively interested parties are invited to attend one of two open evenings at Winchester Court – on Tuesday, September 9, at 6pm, and Thursday, September 11, at 7pm.

The Isle of Man Constabulary is also seeking to attract new recruits to join its dedicated voluntary service. Special Constables assist the regular force in neighbourhood duties and can expect to play a part in the policing of major incidents and events.

Anybody interested in applying can obtain an information pack by calling 631547 between 1pm and 4pm and quoting the reference SP1. The Isle of Man Constabulary is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications irrespective of sex, race, marital status, religion or sexual orientation.
