Our selection process is simple. You're already an experienced PCSO and that speaks volumes.
Once you have submitted your application form, we'll check you meet our eligibility criteria. If you're a current serving PCSO who is meeting the day-to-day requirements of their role, and have successfully completed your 12 months probationary period with your current force, you'll likely have no issue here.
You will be invited to attend a face to face interview and health and fitness checks which are held on the same day. If you are successful, you will move onto the pre-employment stage which includes vetting, references and a medical.
How you'll be trained
You will receive full training and an induction into the Met that will prepare you for your new position. You will be able to call upon your own experience and the support of others around you through this period and there will be highly experienced and skilled colleagues around you who will always be there to help or assist.
The Met is committed to being an inclusive employer with a diverse and representative workforce at all levels. We encourage applications from people from the widest possible range of backgrounds, cultures and experiences. We particularly welcome applications from ethnic minority groups and females.
As a Disability Confident employer, the Met has committed to making disability equality part of our everyday practice. We ensure that people with disabilities and those with long term health conditions have the opportunities to fulfil their potential and realise their aspirations. If you consider yourself to have access, workplace or reasonable adjustment requirements that need to be accommodated, we ask that you include this information within your application form. All matters will be treated in strict confidence and will not affect any recruitment decisions.
