Sussex Police is recruiting for 80 new jobs within the force - for just a few days only.

The application window for PCs opens on Monday at 10am and will remain open, 24 hours a day, until 4pm on Friday, June 7. Applicants will not be at any disadvantage if they apply towards the end of the window, as long as your application has been received by the deadline.

“PCs are an integral part of policing in Sussex. They work closely with the community and undertake activities to tackle crime and disorder at a local level, while also assisting to deal with the threat of organised crime and terrorism.

“We are looking for people who understand and share our values and have the drive and dedication to deliver the very best public service,” said assistant chief constable Robin Merrett.

Applicants should:

Be aged 18 years or over at the time of application

Live in Sussex at the time of application and do so throughout their time as an officer

Possess a full UK manual driving licence

Have achieved a standard of education equivalent to A-level or independent patrol status as PCSOs or Special Constables.
