Career Discovery Workshops
West Yorkshire Police is committed to recruiting from under-represented communities as we believe that a more diverse workforce will allow us to become more effective in preventing and reducing crime, keeping people safe and caring for victims.
We are currently under-represented by females and people from Ethnic Minority backgrounds and so are encouraging people from these groups to apply to become Police Officers or members of Police Staff.
If you are from one of these groups please use the links below to sign up for one of our online events to find out more about the roles and for information on how to apply.
If you are unable to attend any of the events, or would like to apply without attending an event, please email – [email protected] for access to the application form.
If you are not from one of our under-represented groups, please keep checking this page for updates on when Police Officer recruitment is opening or visit our Police Staff vacancies page.
