Do you have what it takes to be at the frontline of policing and help Gloucestershire Constabulary deliver our mission to keep people safe from harm? Do you share our values of integrity, impartiality and transparency? Can you be dedicated to work in the public's interest, engaging and listening to their needs and concerns? 

We are looking for individuals with exceptional communication skills and a passion for public service to become Call Handlers within Gloucestershire Constabulary. You will be part of an inclusive team of professionals delivering an excellent service to the public. 

You will work in an environment which changes from minute-to-minute. No two days will be the same as you ensure that the public feel valued; helping to build confidence in the police service. You will be dealing with emergency and non-emergency contact via a variety of channels. Often callers can be distressed and in a time critical situation. You will need to take control, gain relevant information and make dynamic decisions whilst being empathetic, compassionate and supportive. 

We are recruiting full-time and part-time Call Handlers. The part-time working patterns include working 24/7 and including bank holidays. Please see the spreadsheets for the shift patterns, at the bottom of the spreadsheet are the tabs for the different shift patterns. 

The late shift would attract a shift allowance of 32.06%, which commences after the completion of the initial training course when the successful applicants start working the 24/7 shift pattern.

Please refer to the Role Profile document when completing the Statement in support of your application section of the form. In this section, you are required to provide evidence with specific examples for each of the eight Essential criteria included under the Experience and Qualifications section of the Role Profile. For each of the eight criteria, please write a paragraph detailing how your experience, qualifications, skills and abilities meet the minimum criteria for the role.
