We’re inviting applications from transferees at the substantive rank of Superintendent

We’re inviting applications from transferees at the substantive rank of Superintendent, or substantive Chief Inspectors seeking promotion to Superintendent, who have a proven track record of people-focused leadership.

We’re looking for senior officers who will be visible change agents in our organisation; who will support, coach and mentor their teams in a no-blame culture; and who aren’t afraid to move out of their comfort zones to take risks to innovate and improve our services.

Why Derbyshire? As a force, we have a strong and unequivocal commitment to delivering a high-quality policing service for everyone in the county – whether for our one million residents or our 10 million visitors to the Peak District.

We’re not the largest of forces but we make the headlines because we aren’t afraid to try new approaches, guided by our principles of doing the right thing, making a difference and shaping the future. 

Whilst our urban areas present some policing challenges, Derbyshire is a predominantly rural area, much of it within the Peak District National Park, offering opportunities for an outdoor lifestyle and an enhanced quality of life. Our central location, with excellent transport links, makes us accessible from most areas of the country.

You’ll be working alongside a variety of highly motivated, ambitious and capable people in a forward-looking organisation continually looking to be at the forefront of technological innovation.

By joining us, you’ll play a unique role in helping us to keep Derbyshire as one of the safest places to live and work in England.
