The skills you possess are highly prized. Life experience. An appreciation of diversity issues. The ability to put forward your views with clarity and intelligence. But more than anything - you know London. You live here and you understand what it might take to police and protect different communities.
When people apply to join the Met as a Police Officer or Special Constable, they undergo rigorous evaluation at assessment days. It’s essential that our assessments receive specialist input, so that we’re seeking individuals with the right knowledge, skills and behaviours. As a valued member of the community, you could become a trained ‘Community Assessor’ to help us carry out this vital work.
We’d need you for 25 days a year (including the occasional Saturday) and it’s quite sporadic, so flexibility is essential. (Current workloads are seeing Assessors working up to as much as 2-3 weeks continuously). With an excellent command of English (spoken and written), you’ll use your sound judgement to objectively assess and evaluate candidate performance against a set of competencies. Then it’s a case of delivering constructive feedback with confidence and tenacity. Please be aware that you will need to be vetted, which can be a lengthy process. Current and ex-police employees (of the Met and other UK constabularies) are not eligible for this role.
If you’ve never done this kind of work before, that’s ok. We’ll provide you with all the training you need.
To apply, please complete the online application form to register your interest for this role. Please be aware we are not currently recruiting for this role, however your application will be held on record. You will be contacted when the next available position becomes available.
We view diversity as fundamental to our success. To tackle today’s complex policing challenges, we need a workforce made up from all of London’s communities. Applications from across the community are therefore essential.
Please note - You will need to have lived in London within the geographical area covered by the Met for at least three of the last six years to be eligible to apply
