Durham Constabulary has a strict vetting requirement and any offer of employment will be subject to appropriate vetting levels which will be maintained / updated throughout the period of service. In addition, applicants should have been a UK resident for at least 3 years prior to the date of application. However in the event that applicants have not been resident in the UK for at least 3 years and can provide a VERIFIABLE certificate from the Police of any country where they have taken temporary residence to indicate that they have not been convicted of any offence whilst in that country or involved in any investigation by a Law Enforcement Agency which includes being interviewed, arrested, issued with any penalty notice, charged or cautioned irrespective of whether that offence is an offence within the United Kingdom, then this will be considered as part of the recruitment vetting process. Individuals who are not able to meet this criteria will be subject to appropriate risk assessment by the Force Counter Corruption & Vetting Unit.
Any tattoo anywhere on the body that is obscene, or advocates sexual, racial, ethnic, or religious discrimination, by written word or design is prohibited and the presence of such a tattoo would preclude an applicant from passing the recruitment process for employment with the Constabulary.
Positive Action aims to increase recruitment applications from all underrepresented groups. People with language skills, different cultures and backgrounds are encouraged to apply to our organisation. We are committed to building our relationships with minority communities and encouraging them to join our policing family.
On request wherever possible we may be able to put individuals in touch with an appropriate officer/member of staff who shares a similar protected characteristic/need or has identified themselves as a specific point of contact to provide support and assistance, in respect of an enquiry or progression through the recruitment and selection process.
We particularly welcome applications and the opportunity for informal discussion with individuals from the following underrepresented groups, Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Groups, LGBT+ and those who consider themselves to have a disability as defined by the Equality Act 2010.
