Can you help support and mentor young people and give them an insight to policing?

Derbyshire Constabulary are looking for a voluntary Cadet Leader to work with our cadets as they begin their journey into policing.

You will provide support and coaching in areas such as police procedure and criminal law, crime prevention as well as taking part in team building activities and local community events.

Working closely with the cadets and cadet team you will be a vital member of the team providing insight into the many and varied aspects of policing, making our cadets aware of the role of the police in the community and developing their character.

You should have previous experience working with volunteers, young people or youth groups.
Good organisational skills and the ability to motivate a team of young people to achieve a set objective is key.
Any previous experience or qualifications in areas such as First Aid, sports, mountaineering or outdoor pursuits would be great but not essential.

If you think you can volunteer for 4 hours per week and help us to provide vital support and mentoring to our cadets then please read more on the job description.

As a Police Support Volunteer you'll be making a real contribution to the success of the organisation by bringing communities into policing and policing into communities. Using your spare time to do something worthwhile and that really makes a difference.

Working for the constabulary

Policing in Derbyshire takes more than 3,500 people in a wide range of roles. Around half of these are police officers, but we also have a variety of police staff. From police community support officers to police staff and volunteers, we all play an equally important role in protecting the people of Derbyshire.

It’s a vibrant, challenging and rewarding place to work and we’re committed to equality and diversity. We aim to create a constabulary that truly reflects the communities we serve. As part of this, we promote Positive Action. This means when you apply to join us, as well as assessing you on merit, we’ll look at your application according to our need and in line with current legislation to actively encourage a more diverse workforce.
