"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."
Tempoary Chief Constable Giles York added: "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.
