Metropolitan Police recruitment

Police lights crop

We think London’s police force should reflect the city it protects. That’s why we’re helping the Met to recruit more officers from Tower Hamlets.

Policing a city as large, complex and culturally diverse as London presents a wide variety of challenges. It's why the Met is interested in new recruits with a wide range of life experiences and backgrounds. And it's why the ability to build trust and relationships with very different people is so important. More than this, you need to take genuine pride in making the capital's neighbourhoods safer for everyone.

London is a 24 hour city, of course. So this is far from a 9-5 job. You have to be prepared for a lifestyle where shift work is the norm and the working day can be at night. You need to be prepared for difficult and dangerous situations too - but there's no reason to be daunted. You'll get world class training, you will be part of a brilliant and loyal team and you'll soon be ready to face anything.



This is just a snapshot of what being a police office is about. Our WorkPath team will make sure you have all the information you need to understand the role by bringing together potential applicants with police officers. Specialist employment advisors will help you get ready to put in your application and support you as you prepare for your interview.
