Various locations across London
£38 per hour PAYE contract
Babcock is the Metropolitan Police Service's (Met Police) learning partner, working with a collaboration of four London-based universities - Anglia Ruskin University, Brunel University London, University of East London and University of West London - to support the UK's largest police service with the training of its new officer recruits.
The partnership with the Met Police will last until at least 2028, with a possibility to extend for a further two years, and is set at a maximum contract value of £309 million, dependent on the number of recruits trained under the programme.
Due to continued growth in volumes, we are looking to recruit a number of individuals with recent Policing experience to deliver highly engaging lecturer led lessons, role-plays and practical sessions to the next generation of police recruits. The role of a Lecturer is a rewarding position that will give you the opportunity to use your experience to guide and mentor students on their journey to becoming fully fledged police officers.
What do I need to be able to do the role?
You will need to be degree educated or level 6 equivalent whilst also having up to date relevant operational experience in policing.
We would also like you to have experience in all of these areas:
- Excellent literacy and communication skills.
- Be a confident speaker, ideally with experience of delivering training sessions to groups or individuals.
- Ideally not have left a policing role more than 5 years ago, however we will consider candidates depending on experience since leaving.
What else do I need to know?
- Successful applicants will need NPPV1 via the Met Police vetting process and an enhanced DBS through the Disclosure and Barring Service, however this will be provided during on boarding. These roles are on an ad-hoc associate basis paid via PAYE.
If you feel you have the necessary skills and experience then we would love to hear from you. Please send your CV to either Jed Williams () or Simon James () who are leading the recruitment for this programme.
