Job details

The West Midlands is one of Europe’s most diverse and challenging policing environments, serving 2.8 million people in an area rich in diversity, with around 30 percent of its population from ethnic minority backgrounds.

The region sits at the very heart of the country and covers the three major centers of Birmingham, Coventry, and Wolverhampton. It also includes the busy and thriving districts of Sandwell, Walsall, Solihull, and Dudley. Leisure, retail, and conference amenities, together with Premiership and Championship football teams, attract millions of visitors annually.

An average of 170,000 motorists travels through the region daily, making our motorways some of the busiest in Europe. Against this backdrop, the force deals with more than 2,000 emergency calls for help every day, as well as patrolling the streets and responding to incidents 24-hours-a-day, seven days a week.

Preparation is also well underway for our role in Coventry City of Culture in 2021 and the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham in 2022. Becoming games ready is now a key milestone for us as we shift our focus from 2020 to 2022.

Ensuring diversity, both through the people who work for us and the way in which we serve and protect our communities, is a key priority for us. We are looking for Chief Inspectors who can drive forward a three-year strategy embed our equality and diversity strategy, build trust and confidence in policing and ensure an inclusive approach.

If you feel engaged by our vision and values, have a passion for people, colleagues, and communities, an appetite to work in a challenging and complex organization, and you embody our force values and strategic objectives we would like to hear from you.
