    Contract: Permanent

    Duration: Two years

    Location: London

    About the programme

    Every neighbourhood deserves to feel safe with police officers they can trust. By joining our programme, you can help vulnerable communities rocked by injustice and plagued by crime.

    Our National Graduate Leadership Programme is designed to develop your resilience, leadership and problem-solving abilities to equip you with the skills and knowledge required as a neighbourhood police officer. We will teach you everything you need to know about working with communities and local partners, to prevent crime, lead investigations, and proactively identify neighbourhood issues.

    Your salary is paid from day one when you start our training academy. You will then spend two years embedded in a neighbourhood. This will give you the opportunity to become a visible leader in the community, engage with partners to support and safeguard the vulnerable and prevent those at risk of offending. Our programme prepares you to make a positive change and stop crime before it happens. There is no greater feeling than seeing the work you do impact someone’s life for the better.

    We are looking for talented graduates from all degree disciplines. You don’t need any previous policing knowledge or experience to be successful in our programme.

    For your ambitions, career goals, promotions.  For every brave new idea and the lives you’ll change. Become a neighbourhood police officer.

    Training and development

    Our award-winning training sets the foundation for a successful and transformative career in policing. Throughout the academy, you’ll have access to a performance and development coach who will support you to navigate a new career and maximise your potential. You'll also have the opportunity to apply for a secondment, which is a unique opportunity to develop skills and gain valuable experience working with external partners.

    Career progression

    Once you successfully complete the programme, you will be a fully warranted neighbourhood police officer with a permanent role in policing. You’ll also join our alumni network and have full access to our team, who are there to support your career in policing.

    Many of our graduates have gone on to get promoted or taken the opportunity to move laterally into the wide variety of departments that are on offer in policing. Such as becoming a detective, joining Counter Terrorism teams, or working on policing priorities such as Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG).


    To apply for this programme, you must:

    • be over 17 years of age or older on application, (and 18 by the time of appointment)
    • be a British citizen, a citizen of a country that is a member of the European Economic Area or Switzerland, or a Commonwealth citizen or foreign national who is resident in the UK and has settled status or leave to remain and work without restrictions
    • have been resident in the UK for the past three years (some exemptions allowed)

    • not have existing county court judgements outstanding against you

    Work-life balance

    This is not your typical 9-5. Police officers work varied shift patterns which gives them flexibility and freedom to maximise their time outside of work. Different to your typical working week, you’ll often receive several days off in a row. It may take some time to adapt to shift pattern working, but once you do, you may find that the flexibility of the schedule allows you to better balance work and home life.


    You’ll automatically be enrolled as a member of the Police Pension Scheme 2015, which awards police officers for their dedication and service to the public. It offers a generous and secure retirement package, providing officers with financial stability and peace of mind.

    Free and discounted travel

    Free London travel from the start of your training programme, including tubes and buses. You’ll also have access to heavily discounted rail travel for up to 70 miles from London.

    Financial services discounts

    There are various partner organisations who work alongside the police to offer a variety of financial services including saving, investment and protection products, as well as discounts and subsidies. Many major high street stores, retail outlets and other national organisations offer discounts and special deals to police officers. Most police forces also provide access to a number of subsidised leisure and sporting activities.

    Application process

    Throughout each stage of the application process, you'll learn more about the preventative and transformative role of neighbourhood policing:

    • Online application, including proof of eligibility.
    • Immersive assessment
    • Assessment centre
    • Conditional offer
