Application Form Assessment

The application process for police constables consists of several challenging steps designed to ensure that applicants of the highest quality are recruited to the North Wales Police.

You must first download the application form, making sure to complete the entire form before returning it. If it is incomplete, it will delay the process, or, worse, your application may be rejected. Make sure you meet all of the eligibility requirements. This is the first part of the selection process. You are required to provide evidence of your transferable skills which link to relevant competencies. Your spelling and grammar are also assessed.


Assessment Centre

The assessment centre is comprised of a number of exercises which simulate real life situations and problems.

  • Interactive exercises
  • Written exercises
  • 20-minute interview
  • Multiple-choice mathematical and verbal logical reasoning tests

The assessment centre exercises are the same as those at the College of Policing assessment centre. Learn more about the exercises here.


Interview

The interview lasts approximately 40 minutes. It is based on the Leadership Behaviours and your research into North Wales Police, the College of Policing, and the role you are applying for. The Leadership Behaviours are as follows:

  • Public service
  • Openness to change
  • Service delivery
  • Professionalism
  • Decision-making
  • Working with others

Welsh Test

This is an oral test in which you are required to demonstrate your Welsh language skills at Level 2. There are three parts to the test: answering a question, introducing yourself with some details, and repeating a sentence in Welsh.


Background, Academic, and Employee References

Background checks and references are performed at an early stage of the recruitment process. If you successfully pass, you will be asked to consent to providing a fingerprint and DNA sample.

Next, you must undergo a fitness test and a medical assessment. If you pass all these stages, you will be offered an appointment.
