Are you ready?

Registration has now closed. Thank you to everybody who applied. Those who are successful at this first stage, will be notified and move onto the next stage of the recruitment process.

Are you ready to stand up to one of the most rewarding and fulfilling jobs you could do?

We need to recruit nearly 400 Police Officers over the next three years - could you be one of them?

It's a unique role with unique demands that are ever-changing. You need to be adaptable to change and ready to think on your feet.

In return, you will have the benefit of working for a creative, forward-thinking force that is dedicated to keeping South Yorkshire a safe place to live, work and visit.

Are you ready for a varied job? A job that is as much about supporting victims, providing reassurance and building relationships as it is about flashing lights and handcuffing offenders.

We are particularly keen to increase the number of women officers and officers from black and minority ethnic communities so that we can truly reflect the communities that we serve in South Yorkshire.  For more information about this click here.

Chief Constable David Crompton said: “I thoroughly enjoyed my time as an officer on the frontline. In some ways, the role has changed significantly since my days as a PC but at the heart, the aims are the same; to tackle criminality and provide a safe South Yorkshire for us all to live in.

"There are many policing challenges at the moment, both nationally and locally, but we want to ensure that South Yorkshire Police is in the strongest position possible  for the future. We are therefore looking for the best candidates who share our commitment to serve our communities. If that is you, we look forward to hearing from you.”

If you're ready, you need to be aged between 18-57 years and hold a valid UK driving licence. You will need to register your details on our website. Registration opens on Tuesday 1 March at 9.30am and closes on Thursday 3 March at 11.59pm.  Visit back here between that time to register.
