North Wales Police is looking to employ more people from under-represented backgrounds under a new recruitment drive.

The force will be inviting applications for new police constables from 9am this morning.

In a social media post, NWP said it wanted to be “truly representative” of all the region’s communities by recruiting individuals from diverse backgrounds if they meet the right criteria.

It said: “Only when everyone in our communities can see themselves in the police will they have full confidence in us.

“Whatever your background; we’re interested in hearing from people who are driven not just to see the difference in policing; but who actively want to be the difference too.

“The standards required in our recruitment processes are high and are applied to everyone equally because we want the best people to join us in making North Wales the safest place in the UK.

“Because we tend to receive a high level of interest in our police constable roles, the advert may close early once we receive the desired number of applications.”
