Humberside Police jobs

Change the story

Do you think differently? Can you work with others to create new solutions to long term societal problems? Do you want a meaningful career that improves the lives of those around you?

If so, you may be eligible for Police Now’s award winning two-year National Graduate Leadership Programme. This is a unique opportunity to join the police through our Times Top 100 graduate employment scheme, which offers support, mentorship, and personal career development opportunities throughout the two-year programme.

Society needs neighbourhood police officers as diverse as the communities they serve across the Humberside region, to solve long term societal problems. We need people like you to bring the diversity of your background and experiences to make a positive and lasting difference in the North East to communities challenged by crime.

HumbersidePolice careers

Humberside Police serve over 1 million people across Northern Lincolnshire, Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire. They cover a very diverse area that stretches from as far north as Bridlington, across to the Isle of Axholme and down to the outskirts of Grimsby.

Humberside boasts some of England’s most attractive countryside and some truly vibrant towns, all with transport links to Leeds, Manchester, London and the South. You can fly from Humberside Airport to many European destinations, and you’re only an hour away from Doncaster airport and 1 ½ hours from Manchester and Leeds Bradford airports. You’re also never more than a short drive away from the countryside or the coast.

Being there for the community is a core value in policing, and the pivotal role for a Humberside neighbourhood police officer. You will play a key role in providing reassurance to the community and being the link between the public and Humberside Police.


Through our partnership with Humberside Police and neighbouring forces in the North East region, we have recruited, trained and developed 112 graduates to become neighbourhood police officers on the National Graduate Leadership Programme since 2017.

Police Now stood out as different. I felt that through a programme that was so in line with what I connected with; it was the right way to go into policing. I think what sets Police Now apart - and why it is important - is that it really embraces you as an individual. I can honestly say that. It gives you the opportunity to be yourself and then be a police officer.

Since completing the National Graduate Leadership Programme, I have transitioned into a detective role investigating serious and complex crime. Being a detective leaves a lasting impact on people’s lives and there is nothing more rewarding or important than that.

We believe that the more diverse our police officers, the easier it is to connect with and understand the needs of communities.
