South Wales Police are planning to advertise for the role of Police Constable in August 2016 and November 2016, respectively. (These dates are subject to change, based on force requirements). ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

We are looking for the very best candidates and will be seeking applicants who have successfully obtained the Certificate in Knowledge of Policing (CKP) qualification (or approved equivalent) within the last three years (at the closing date). ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Candidates who hold an approved equivalent of the CKP may also be eligible and will be required to provide suitable confirmation that the CKP units have been achieved upon application. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Queries relating to the CKP or CKP approved equivalent(s), should be directed to Learning and Development on LDSHELPDESK@south-wales.pnn.police.uk. (Please note, in preparation for our 2017 recruitment strategy, we will also shortly be advertising our next CKP course.) ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

During the selection process and following application, candidates will also be expected to successfully pass a number of elements in addition to the eligibility criteria, including: ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

– South Wales Police Multiple Choice Questions examination (MCQ)
if you have already successfully passed the MCQ and possess a valid MCQ this must remain valid at the closing date. The validity of the examination is 18 months from the date of the examination;
– Fitness Test;
– Medical;
– Drugs;
– Biometric vetting;
– Vetting. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

As an equal opportunities employer, we welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons. However, as black and minority ethnic (BME) candidates are currently under-represented within the Force, we would particularly welcome applications from BME applicants. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

If you would like to discuss further the opportunities, support offered and the forthcoming recruitment campaign, please contact our Representative Workforce Team on Joinus@south-wales.pnn.police.uk. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Once the dates have been confirmed and South Wales Police is ready to advertise, information and details will be available on our website www.south-wales.police.uk. Application forms and further details will not be available prior to the formal advert dates. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

These forthcoming campaigns are not open to existing serving Police Constables or previous serving Police Officers and as a result they cannot apply via the police recruit process. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Police Constables or previous serving police officers are able to join South Wales Police via a Police Constable Transferee or Police Officer re-joiner process. South Wales Police is not currently running such processes. When a decision is made to hold a transferee or re-joiner process, this will be advertised on our website. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
