Do I have to be a British Citizen?
You must be a British citizen, an
EC/EEA national, a Commonwealth
citizen or a foreign national with no restrictions on your
stay in the United Kingdom. You will be required to provide proof
at any Assessment Centre that you have no restrictions on your stay
in the UK and when
assessing an applicant’s eligibility under the nationality rules,
the force will carry out a check either against a full passport or
national identity card or, where this is not available, a Home
Office document confirming the individual has the required
nationality and immigration status for the post.
Irrespective of nationality, applicants must
have been a resident in the UK for three years prior to submitting
the application form and the calculation of the three year
period of time refers to the period immediately before an
application is made, and not any other 3 year period, or any other
accumulation of time spent in the UK.
Foreign nationality is not an automatic bar to
recruitment or to granting security vetting clearance (which is a
necessary part of the recruitment process). However, if
individuals cannot be vetted in line with the requirements of the
National Vetting Policy, they cannot be granted vetting clearance,
as the risk cannot be adequately assessed.
Essentially we will need to be able to carry
out equitable security checks on you and your family members
but in some cases due to disproportionate costs or difficulties in
obtaining the necessary information from various countries of your
origin or residency we may not be able to satisfactorily carry out
these checks. In such cases the recruitment process
cannot continue and it will be necessary for the force to
reject your application.
Thank you for interest in joining
