JOINING THE MDP

Where you could be based

With many sites throughout the UK, opportunities in the MDP are on a national scale. The two-year probationary period will be served at the station you are posted to. However, the standard posting length for all officers is three years.

Upon joining the MDP, you will be liable for your own relocation costs if you need to move house to take up your first post. Thereafter a move to another station will usually be financially supported by the MOD if it’s on public interest terms.

If your application is sifted in you will be required to attend an interview assessment. If you are successful you will be required to complete a physical fitness test (currently the bleep test to level 7.6); to undergo a medical examination and will be subject to the Force Vetting/Security process that applies to all new entrants.
