You must be honest, in good health and of good character.
You must either be a national of a country within the European Economic Area, or if not have leave to enter or remain in the UK free of restrictions.
We are interested in your potential, not paper qualifications. You must be able to speak and write clear English, as you will need to write short reports of incidents, write statements and may be asked to give evidence in court.
