Could you work in the Norfolk Police Contact and Control Room?

The Contact & Control Room is at the hub of Norfolk Constabulary’s services. We operate 24/7 and you will need to be flexible and work shifts as required (including some Bank Holidays). We are making plans for 2019 and are looking for staff to work fixed shifts Monday to Friday between the hours of 0900 and 2300, and on our  24/7 teams who work a rotating shift pattern of two early shifts, two late shifts and two night shifts, followed by four rest days.

  • You will frequently be making difficult decisions, prioritising conflicting demands under pressure and taking personal responsibility for delivering the right service.
  • You will speak to telephone callers (including 999) who may be vulnerable, confused, distressed, frightened or even angry.
  • You will be giving telephone advice to the public for a variety of different issues.
  • You will use our cutting edge Digital Radio Communications System to control Police resources – often in difficult and demanding circumstances.
  • You will be responsible for conducting telephone crime investigations.
  • You will already be comfortable with using complicated I.T. Systems.
  • You will already be able to audio type at 30wpm (we will be testing you).

 

If you think you have got what it takes then please apply for our assessment days.

Those submitting an application will be invited to an assessment centre, normally held at Dereham Police Station. At the assessment centre you will undertake a series of tests that reflect the realities of the Communications Officer role including your typing speed, decision making and telephone manner. These will be assessed on the day, and any successful applicants will then be interviewed, before being advised of the outcome.

Please be aware that participation in these events will be by prior appointment only and previous applicants over the last 6 months will not be considered.
