    Job Description

    Job title: Police Constable, Authorised Firearms Officer
    Organisation: Ministry of Defence Police
    Level: New Recruit
    Salary: £25,346 (with the potential to increase to over £40,879 within six years)
    Location: Reading, Berkshire and Barrow-In-Furness, Cumbria
    WHO WE ARE
    The Ministry of Defence Police, more commonly known as the MOD Police or the MDP are a national civilian police force who serve the Ministry of Defence other UK Government departments and NATO partners based in the UK.
    We're a specialist police force, with most of our officers deployed as Authorised Firearms Officers, and large numbers delivering marine policing and dog handling roles. Wherever your MDP journey takes you, your career with us will start with training to be an Authorised Firearms Officer to the standards set by the College of Policing.
    We protect and reassure by delivering specialist policing to sites, people, and assets essential to Defence and of critical importance across the UK. We provide a highly visible and proactive policing presence within our local communities.

    Counter terrorism policing is also a major part of our role - being called upon to support the national policing response to major terrorist incidents.
    WHAT'S THE ROLE
    As an Authorised Firearms Officer, you'll be carrying out static armed duties and patrols by foot and vehicle alongside other policing and security partners in and around the sites we protect. You'll also play a vital role in deterring threats and reassuring both the people who work at these sites and members of the public in the surrounding area.
    We have structured shift patterns, and while not every shift will be lively, you will still need to be prepared to respond and take actions if and when something happens. Your work with us will be of national importance.
    We offer specialist training when you start the role and ongoing training throughout your career, a good work-life balance, and a wide range of opportunities for you to specialise and progress within the Force.

    We also offer a generous pension scheme with contributions from the Ministry of Defence, mental health support, and fitness provisions (including gyms, fitness instructors, and a Force dietitian).
    WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
    Due to the nature of the role, we're looking for someone with great physical and mental stamina. You'll need to be able to stay focused, alert, and vigilant at all times regardless of how busy or quiet your shift is.
    In addition to this, we're looking for people with the confidence to take control of a situation while maintaining their composure. Good communication skills, patience, and resilience are vital, but it's also hugely important that you work collaboratively with your colleagues and act with integrity at all times.
    With that being said, we also believe there is power and strength in the diversity of our workforce.

    We are made up of people from all walks of life and we understand how important it is that we are reflective of the many demographics of people we protect each day. Find out more about our Diversity and Inclusion policy here.
