Am I eligible?

The people of the West Midlands deserve an excellent service so we are looking for the best people to join us and demonstrate our values. But there’s some formal stuff you’ll need to have too, to make sure you meet nationally set eligibility criteria.

In summary:
  • Academic Qualifications – You’ll need to have achieved a level 2 qualification in English and Maths, in addition you’ll need the equivalent of 64 UCAS points at level 3 or completed a higher level qualification. If you have also achieved a degree or higher qualification (e.g. Masters, PGDip), or have served as a Special Constable, you may be eligible to join via the DHEP route.     
  • Age - How old you are doesn’t determine whether you’ll be a great officer, so we are happy to receive applications from people aged 18 or above
  • Nationality - You must be a British Citizen, European Economic Area (EEA) National, a Commonwealth Citizen or Foreign National with no restrictions on your stay in the UK
  • Residency - have been resident in the UK for three years immediately prior to application. Where applicants have been resident abroad due to serving in the British Armed Forces or on UK Government Service, they are considered to have been resident in the UK.
  • Cautions and conviction - Ideally, you shouldn't have a criminal conviction or cautions record. If you do have one, acceptance will depend on the age and nature of the offence. We are unable to state whether your convictions record will affect your application before you apply. This will be determined from the full and confidential information provided during the recruitment and selection process.
  • Vetting - Due to the nature of policing, it’s essential that we conduct rigorous vetting checks on successful applicants before they can join the programme. These checks will include personal details taken from you as well as from close family members and significant others.
  • Financial position - It's important that you are not under pressure from un-discharged debts or liabilities and that you can manage loans and debts sensibly.

WMP is a large and diverse organisation where you can develop your skills, knowledge and career in an encouraging environment.
