We are seeking existing Inspectors wishing to level transfer as Inspectors or District Detective Inspectors, and suitably qualified (through OSPRE or NPPF) Sergeants seeking promotion to Inspector or District Detective Inspector.

West Yorkshire Police is an ambitious, proactive, dynamic Force, looking to take on the challenge of bettering the service we provide to our communities. We recognise and reward policing excellence and you will find plenty of opportunities for career growth.

We are the lead Force for recruitment to the National Police Air Support and other Regional collaborations including Counter Terrorism Policing North East, Regional Asset Recovery and Regional Scientific Support Services. With such considerable scope and resources available to you, there is ample opportunity to develop your expertise in a wide variety of specialist areas. This is a superb opportunity for high performing, motivated officers to join us in providing a professional and effective service. 

The promotion and transfer process will be held during June and August 2021.  

During the application process, you will be invited to indicate your preferences for any subsequent posting.  Please note that every consideration will be given to your preferences but ultimate posting will be in accordance with organisational need.

Officers applying for this process should be up to date with their Officer Safety Training by the application form closing date – Tuesday 29 June 2021 at 11:55pm – unless exempt.  We are aware that due to COVID-19, there may have been delays in OST and you should therefore notify of any prospective training date on the application form.

Officers are required to have an up to date performance development review/appraisal, with an overall performance rating of at least ‘Successful Performer’, or equivalent.  Applicants must meet the Force Attendance Standard at the closing date of the advertisement and at any subsequent date of promotion/posting. 

The final stage of the promotion process will comprise a presentation and semi-structured panel interview.  Candidates should note that the Competency and Values Framework (CVF), Level 2, will be applied to all areas of the selection process.  

We continue to demonstrate commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion, both for our people and the communities we serve and we particularly welcome applications from under-represented groups.

Important Candidate Information

During the application process, candidates will complete an application form which is restricted to a specific word count. This form may be assessed for shortlisting purposes.  Because of the importance of this stage of the process, all candidates should ensure that they give due regard to the quality of their written application to ensure that it can withstand the rigours of any shortlisting.   

During the assessment process, promotion candidates will have a specific time period during which they will prepare a presentation topic, using flip charts to assist their presentation. Then they will deliver the presentation, which is timed. Immediately after this, the interview will commence.

Should anyone consider that they have a disability including a specific learning difficulty, for example, dyslexia, for which they may require an adjustment during the application and/or assessment process as described above, please would they advise by completing the section on the application form. Please note you may be required to provide any reports/certificates in relation to your condition to the Resourcing team to enable consideration to be given to any adjustment required.

Proposed opportunities for roles within Yorkshire and Humber Regional Organised Crime Unit

Location: Yorkshire and Humber Regional Organised Crime Unit, Various locations

As a result of the Police Uplift Programme (PUP) the Yorkshire & Humber Regional Organised Crime Unit (YHROCU) are increasing their establishment across a number of teams which support the fight against Serious Organised Crime within the Regional Forces of North Yorkshire, West Yorkshire, South Yorkshire and Humberside. This is a unique opportunity to work collaboratively with Police Forces, the National Crime Agency (NCA) and other key law enforcement partners including internationally using investigation techniques and high level covert tactics to disrupt organised crime and bring offenders to justice.

Within the Yorkshire and Humber Region this equates to 26 officers in 2021/22, with a potential for 7 more local secondments to the City of London Police tackling Fraud related issues. 

2022/23 will likely see upwards of 70 additional police officer posts added to the YHROCU.

This provides opportunity to increase capability and capacity to enable it to tackle both existing and emerging threats, whilst keeping the public safe.

Applications are welcome from Police Constables who are willing to undertake the TI development programme, existing TI’s and PIP2 accredited Detectives. 

Opportunities will also be available for suitably qualified and experienced Sergeants, Inspectors and SLT members as the YHROCU expands.

These opportunities will be available to transferee officers on the following basis.  Officers will be appointed to West Yorkshire Police.  Their recruitment process will appertain to joining West Yorkshire Police, but there will also be a recruitment process for the specific role for which the officer is interested.  Upon appointment, successful applicants will be appointed to West Yorkshire Police and will then be attached to the ROCU in the individual role they were applying for.  In the event that the ROCU role should cease in the future, then the officer would be returned to West Yorkshire Police.

The uplift provides further opportunity to ensure the YHROCU is truly representative of the communities we serve, from a geographical perspective, skills, life experience and the protected characteristics. 

By being truly representative it enables the YHROCU to provide the best service to the public.

Applications are particularly welcome from all underrepresented groups including but not limited to officers from different cultural backgrounds.

The YHROCU have capabilities in Covert Investigations, Undercover Operations, Cyber Crime, Digital Forensics, Dark Web, Regional Intelligence, Covert Intelligence Collection, Technical Surveillance and Regional Economic Investigations.

Ultimately if you can think outside the box, problem solve some of the most serious threats facing society and are keen to develop and take on new challenges, then please contact the YHROCU about the available opportunities.
