More Than 400 Register For Superintendent Job At Met
Tuesday 27th February 2014
More than 400 people have registered an interest in joining the Met Police as Superintendents.
For the first time, the force is accepting new recruits at management level who don't have to have a policing background.
No academic qualifications are required. The job advert as it appeared in print.
Of the 421 people who have registered interest so far, most have managerial and professional experience.
Met Police Commissioner, Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, said: "We need to ensure our
leaders have the widest possible range of skills and knowledge and I
believe this first cadre of direct entry superintendents will help us
transform the Met for the better.
"Policing is a challenging but very rewarding career and I'm sure that those who join us through this new initiative will get back every bit as much as they are able to give to the police service and the public of London. We need exceptional people - are you up for the challenge of fighting crime and saving lives in London?"
