As well as specific support programmes for some roles, we look to build a supportive culture which brings our Stronger Together values to life. This could include buddying with a more experienced member of the team to help you gain skills and confidence.
We understand that joining a new organisation can appear and feel daunting. We want to make that as easy for you as we can and want you to feel welcomed into Northamptonshire Police. That is why we have designed a buddy scheme. A buddy is there to provide a friendly face and someone to speak to who is not involved in your learning or development. The Positive Action team can introduce you to a buddy at any stage of the application process.
We will work with you at every stage of the recruitment and selection process to help you to be the best candidate you can be. We have developed a number of tutorials to help in your preparation for your new career. We also recognised we are all different – we will therefore also provide individual support based on your need. Remember though your success will always be due to your merit.
