Whilst the Force currently has no immediate plans to recruit NEOFs for vacancies other than those listed in the Current Vacancies section, we are accepting expressions of interest from those who wish to be notified should we run future campaigns for officers who hold the rank of Sergeant or above. If this applies to you, please email email@example.com with the following details:
Your details will then be held on file and you will be notified if we open up a NEOF campaign that matches your expression of interest.
