Sussex Police will be inviting people to apply for up to 120 Police Constables posts tomorrow (Monday).

The force is seeking dedicated, positive and empathetic people to fill up to constable positions with the Force in 2015/16.

Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne said: "I'm pleased to be able to open the recruitment window again for Police Constables in Sussex.

"I know the people of Sussex value their police force very highly and that they want to see more visible policing in the areas in which they live and work.

"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.

"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."

Applicants must be aged 18 years or over by May 23 2014 and live in Sussex at the time of application possess a full UK manual driving licence have achieved a standard of education equivalent to A Level or independent patrol status as PCSOs or Special Constables  

The application window will remain open, 24 hours a day, until 4pm on Friday May 23.

Applicants will not be at any disadvantage if they apply towards the end of the window, as long as your application has been received by the deadline.

To inform potential candidates about the process and what criteria an applicant must meet a briefing pack has been prepared, which is available at http://www.sussex.police.uk/policing-in-sussex/work-with-us/police-officers

Seems like if you are from a 'BME Community' then you will have an unfair advantage in applying for these roles.

Don't have to be the best as long as your the right ******, the best candidate should get the job regardless of their ******, not just because they are underrepresented!
