With more than 700 operational staff, the Service very much depends on its team of non-uniformed staff who provide specialist administrative, technical and professional support services.


Non-uniformed staff work in areas including finance, community safety, training, personnel, information technology and workshops.

Finding out about vacancies

When vacancies arise, these are advertised in the local press. We also use Job Centres and specialist publications as necessary. In addition, all vacancies are advertised via the Worcestershire County Council information points. Each advertisement will tell you how to apply and where to obtain further information about the post. You can also check the WM Jobs website.

All applicants will also be asked to complete a medical questionnaire prior to appointment.
