Do your research, know what the job is.
Police Constable (Current Employee) – North West – 28 July 2018
The CNC is a very specialised area of Policing, the list of what you won't do is as long as any other forces description of what you will do on a daily basis so make sure you understand what the day to day role is.
As you will see from some of the other reviews like with any Police Force you will have to pass the training course(not sure why this is a surprise to some people undertaking this as a career). You will get a lot of help the job has a number of people who really wanted to join the home office and will eventually go off and do so meaning that recruitment is often open for the CNC regularly. All this means the tutors and instructors all want you to pass if you meet the standards, are the standards high, yes, but then so is the potential level of responsibility you will take on once you have passed.
The people I work with certainly make the job the enjoyable place to be that I find it. Does a large organisation have areas it could do better in, sure but if you work with people to get where you need to be and be patient it all works out. If after you have a full understanding of the job and what you'll be doing you're still interested I find it very enjoble going to work.
Opportunity for development, good pay, lots of leave
