Sussex Police is inviting people to apply for up to 120 police constable posts across the county.

It is the biggest recruitment drive for the force in recent years.

A huge variety of roles are carried out by police constables and it is an incredibly challenging and rewarding job.

Sussex Police is seeking dedicated, positive and empathetic people to fill up to Constable positions with the Force in 2015/16.

As the drive was launched on Monday, Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne said, “Sussex residents deserve the very best police force and I am confident that we will attract high calibre candidates who will serve the people of Sussex well. If you feel that you have what it takes and want to play your part we look forward to receiving your application.”

Temporary Chief Constable Giles York said, “I’m delighted to be opening up recruitment again. I will be welcoming up to 120 new officers to Sussex Police who will start their training in March next year. Police Constables are an integral part of policing in Sussex, working closely with the community to protect them, cut crime and help manage crime and disorder at a local level. I am looking for people with a range of skills and experiences and from a wide range of backgrounds who share our values and have the drive to make a difference in the communities they service.

“I welcome applications from all members of the community as the force is currently underrepresented by people from BME communities. This is an opportunity for talented individuals to come and find out what we have to offer.”

The application window will remain open, 24 hours a day, until 4pm on Friday May 23. A briefing pack has been prepared which is available at
