The Commissioner is committed to improving the diversity of the officers and staff in South Wales Police so that the people that work in the force are more representative of our communities. Our aim is to promote and achieve a fully inclusive workforce.
In order to provide a high level of service, we encourage applications from under-represented groups and we are proud to pursue a policy of ‘positive action’ in an attempt to achieve this. We are particularly under-represented by people from Black & Minority Ethnic (BME) backgrounds and we are encouraging BME people to apply during our recruitment processes if they feel they have what it takes. We are also looking to encourage more women to become police officers and are working on an action plan to promote female recruitment and promotion internally.
‘Positive action’ refers to a range of measures and initiatives that employers can lawfully take to actively encourage individuals from under-represented groups to apply.
The selection procedure itself is no different, and is based solely on merit. ‘Positive action’ does not seek to remove competition and South Wales Police will always take the best applicants.
If you would like to speak with someone about forthcoming recruitment campaigns, opportunities and support available to you, please contact our representative workforce team at Joinus@south-wales.pnn.police.uk. or call 01656 762995. You can also find out more here
