Police chiefs in South Yorkshire are looking to recruit ‘direct entry’ inspectors to bring new talent into the force.
The Direct Entry Inspector programme offers civilians a route into policing which avoids them working their way up the ranks from constable level.
It is for professionals with ‘proven leadership skills’ in a non-policing background who are ‘ambitious, resilient, determined, flexible and willing to adapt’.
The College of Policing scheme is being rolled out by a number of forces across the country, including South Yorkshire.
Successful recruits will start on a £48,000-a-year salary.
