Become An £80k Boss At Met Police Without Being An Officer

Wednesday 14th May 2014

The Metropolitan Police have advertised for non-police officers to become Superindendents with an 80,000 salary.


The advert, printed in today's Guardian, asks for regular citizens to apply for leadership jobs within the force.

Headlined "Join the ranks of London's great leaders", for the first time anyone in London can apply to be in charge at the Met.

With a starting salary of 63,000 - plus a big London weighting - asking for people to be "a role model, an exceptional leader, someone who can inspire people and lead change effectively.

"The scope of the role, the influence you'll wield, and the number of lives you'll touch will be unlike anything you've experienced before. You'll be driving change across the largest police service in Europe and making decisions that could change lives for thousands of people every day."

Julia Hartley-Brewer is asking whether non-police officers should be allowed to run the police? Have your say in the box below.
