Current Vacancies

POLICE CONSTABLE (PC) AND POLICE SERGEANT (PS): AUTHORISED FIREARMS OFFICERS (AFOs) - INCLUDING SPECIAL ESCORT GROUP (SEG)

Applications are invited from serving Police Constables and Police Sergeants for Authorised Firearms Officer (AFO) vacancies throughout the UK. Officers who have left the police service no more than 3 years ago may also apply.

Although we welcome applications from currently qualified AFOs, you do not need to be a currently qualified AFO to be eligible to apply. Full training will be provided upon commencement of employment with the MDP.

Likewise, we welcome applications from officers with marine and dog handling qualifications. However, for those who are not yet qualified in these specialisms, upon completion of AFO training and commencement of employment with the MDP you will be able to apply to undertake the respective training programmes (subject to availability).

Current and projected vacancies are available in the following areas and locations:

Police Constables:


Police Sergeants:


To note, as we are a national Force, other vacancies may arise at different locations to those listed above and no station is guaranteed, although preferences will be captured in the application process.

Applicants should be aware that for some roles and locations it is a requirement to achieve Developed Vetting clearance, so you should be willing to undergo this process.

To note: You will be tested and must achieve the 7.6 fitness standard throughout the training process and upon completion of training, officers will be tested to this standard on an annual basis as a contractual requirement.

Closing date: Ongoing, until further notice.

DETECTIVE CONSTABLES - CRIME COMMAND OPERATIONS

Applications are invited from serving, currently qualified, Detective Constables who meet the Professionalising the Investigative Process Level 2 (PIP2) standard. Suitably qualified officers who have left the police service no more than 3 years ago may also apply.

MDP Crime Command Operations detectives investigate complex public sector economic crime (i.e. fraud, bribery, corruption, POCA 2002 cases and theft), where the MOD is the principle victim. We therefore welcome applications from officers with experience of working on complex public sector fraud, theft, bribery and corruption cases. Our available vacancies also include opportunities for Financial Investigators.

To be eligible to apply, applicants must be currently qualified in PIP2 and for Financial Investigator (FI) vacancies applicants must hold current and relevant FI accreditation.

Successful applicants will be required to travel throughout the UK when necessary.
