The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) have announced a new recruitment drive and they're looking to hire people from all communities. This is your chance to tackle crime, make a difference in the community and take on a job where you can help people on a daily basis.

Recruits are asked to apply on-line 'for a challenging career that offers new experiences, variety, and an opportunity to give back to the community'.

Here's what the PSNI are looking for before they'll consider you for an interview:

  1. You need to be over the age of 18 and eligible to work in the UK.
  2. You must be able to demonstrate that you have the level of computer literacy required to effectively perform the role of a constable. This will be tested at a number of stages in the recruitment process but there is no requirement for a formal IT qualification needed.
  3. You also need to be fit and pass a physical competence assessment and complete training sessions.
  4. If you're from Republic of Ireland will need to have obtained a Leaving Cert in five subjects at Grade C (Ordinary) or Grade D (Honours), including Maths and English.
  5. But, if  you came through the UK system will need a minimum of five GCSEs at A to C grade, including Maths and English Language.
  6. There’ll be a medical assessment to ensure that you’re fit to carry out the duties of a PSNI constable.
  7. You’ll also be required to pass the Physical Competence Assessment, which is an obstacle course that has to be completed three times in three minutes and 54 seconds.

If you think you have what it takes, you can get the ball rolling by submitting an online application on the PSNI website. Applications are being accepted up until 10 November, 2017.

For more information or to submit an application, check out the website. It will take you through what you need to apply, how to make an application and what's involved in the job if you're successful.
