Yes, officers are automatically enrolled on a GMP familiarisation course. Additional training may be required if you choose to join us in a specialist role that you are not already working in. We’ll make sure you’re fully equipped to hit the ground running when you join GMP.
Providing it has been at least 6 months since you had your interview to transfer to GMP, you will be eligible to apply. If you apply within 6 months after your interview, you will be unsuccessful after eligibility checks.
Yes, all candidates will have their financial status checked during the recruitment process. The Chief Constable does reserve the right to reject an applicant at any stage of the recruitment process without disclosing the reasons for rejection.
Candidates with outstanding County Court Judgments (CCJ) against them will not be considered. Candidates with an outstanding Independent Voluntary Agreement (IVA) will not be considered. Candidates who have discharged CCJs/IVAs will be considered on receipt of a certificate of satisfaction. Candidates who have been registered bankrupt will not be considered until three years after the discharge of the debt.
We will conduct background checks on the candidate, their family and other residents living at their current address. Criminal convictions will not automatically prevent them joining and cases will be considered individually on their own merits.
If candidates have been convicted or cautioned, they may still be eligible for appointment, depending on the nature and circumstances of the offence. However, failure to disclose details will result in their application being rejected and if appointed, may lead to dismissal.
Please indicate any details of convictions for any offence (including all traffic convictions), or formal cautions by police for any offence (including cautions as a juvenile) on their application form. Candidates must also include spent convictions under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act, 1974 (by virtue of the provisions of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act, 1974 Exceptions Order, 1975) or any involvement whatsoever with civil or military police.
