Who are Police Staff


With over 5500 police staff across Scotland, our staff undertake hundreds of vital roles in the Force, such as: service advisors, administrators, solicitors, mechanics, analyst programmers, accountants or HR assistants/business partners.

When vacancies arise they are advertised on our website and with Jobcentre Plus, and sometimes on other well known Scottish jobs boards. Vacancies are usually open for two weeks.

We are committed to developing a workforce that is reflective of our communities to increase trust and confidence in the police.

Double Tick Standard logoWe are committed to the “Positive about Disabled People” standards and are proud to be accredited with and to display the ‘double tick’ symbol. In terms of recruitment, this means that we support the Guaranteed Interview Scheme which means that we will interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for a job vacancy and consider them on their abilities.
