Volunteer-Administrative Partnership Support Assistant - Volunteer

Closing date-20th December 2021

Hall Green Constituency Policing Team works locally to prevent crime through both proactive and preventative interventions. We work closely and collaboratively with the local community to support them in the same mission. Recently we have launched a non-statutory partnership network in the Sparkbrook and Sparkhill area to work with the local community to reduce crime.

The team focus on a variety of areas not limited to but including anti-social behaviour, licensing, hate crime, youth crime, school support, vulnerability and mental health. We work closely with partners to create effective preventative and reduction approaches to tackle these areas. We have a strong working relationship with our partners and are committed to developing new partnerships and provide an efficient and effective service for our communities. 

We realise that there are many members of the public with experience, skills and qualifications highly relevant to the work we do and help us in keeping the public safe and working closely with the community.

West Midlands Police is a Disability Confident Leader - the highest level an organisation can achieve under the scheme run by the Department of Work and Pensions.  As part of our commitment we operate a ‘Disability Confident Interview Scheme’ - all candidates who declare a disability and meet the essential criteria for the role will be offered an interview.  

It is important to note that there may be occasions where it is not practicable or appropriate to interview all disabled people who meet the essential criteria for the job. For example: in certain recruitment situations such as high-volume, seasonal and high-peak times, the employer may wish to limit the overall numbers of interviews offered to both disabled people and non-disabled people. In these circumstances, the employer could select the candidates who best meet the essential criteria for the job, as they would do for non-disabled applicants.

"Diversity and Inclusion Vision:  Maximise the potential of people from all backgrounds through a culture of fairness and inclusion to deliver the best service for our communities"
