Police staff play an integral role in enabling the force to achieve its vision of a safer Staffordshire.
Over a third of colleagues across the force are police staff working in a number of disciplines to strengthen our capabilities and improve service and outcomes for local communities.
The diverse range of staff roles includes:
- Information Management and Technology
- Contact Centre
- Justice Services
- Finance and Business Support
- Legal Services (West Midlands)
Working with Staffordshire Fire and Rescue to keep people safe
Some of our departments also support Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS), as part of the shared service arrangement. This was developed when the Staffordshire Commissioner became responsible for the governance of Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service in 2018, in addition to his existing role overseeing Staffordshire Police.
You’ll therefore be working across police and fire, using your skills and expertise to support two different organisations united in the aims of serving the public and keeping them safe.
- Corporate Communications
- Fleet Services
- Human Resources
- Organisational Learning and Development
- Occupational Health
There is a huge range of opportunities available to people of all backgrounds, skill levels and experiences.
Paul Renkevic, Light Chargehand JETS
I am a line manager to 10 technicians and responsible for maintaining 720 Police and Fire vehicles. I order parts and search for best prices on parts required to repair vehicles, create job cards and assist technicians with diagnosing vehicle faults.
I’ve been in the motor trade since 1986 and what attracted me to my role here was having direct involvement in managing the fleet of vehicles and ensuring they are kept on the roads to service the needs of Staffordshire.
Steven Marsh, Chief Technology Officer
My role has overall responsibility for all IT services and technology in place across the force, ensuring that we provide the best possible IT services to our officers and staff in supporting the community of Staffordshire. I provide strategic leadership for shaping and delivering the force’s IT Plan, looking at future digital initiatives in policing as well as overseeing the maintenance and delivery of all business as usual support.
Staffordshire Police is a great organisation to work for, and one which really values its people. Everyone is considered equally across the force, regardless of grade or rank, and everyone has a clear part to play in supporting the overall delivery of the service to our community. Leaders are encouraged to be authentic in how they deliver their service, and trusted to do so in whichever way works best for their teams.
Charlotte Gorman, Business Service Assistant
I work in the Joint Estates Department as part of the Business Service Team. I help look after and maintain the Fire and Police Estate, which includes monitoring budgets, arranging contractors, dealing with ID requests and queries, assist in monitoring both PFI and FM Contracts and many other aspects for both Services.
I work as part of an amazing team, and we have a great working environment which gives us flexibility and, in turn, gives me a great work/life balance.
Cameron Thomson, Helpdesk Agent
As a Helpdesk Agent my primary role is to raise and to do the initial investigation on users IT issues and tickets coming through the helpdesk phone line and through the online ticketing system. It ranges from low level simple fixes all the way to looking at major system outages, actioning changes in different IT services, and finally using and administering highly sensitive police systems such as the Police National Computer.
Due to the nature of the police, we never know what call is going to come through and this means I'm never bored and always kept busy. I also enjoy the range of different people I get to speak to and all the roles I can learn about. Since joining the force, I have had the opportunities to observe different teams, get involved with different departments, and do apprenticeships.
Olivia Normington, HR Support Assistant
In my role as HR Support Assistant I handle most aspects of human resources work from maternity and paternity leave, ill health retirements, probations and contracts. I also help out the HR Officers and HR Business Partners with any admin and data requests they have. and get to speak to and help people from different departments all over the force.
The ‘police family’ atmosphere is the thing I enjoy most about working at Staffordshire Police. Everyone helps each other out and my role means I get to speak to and help people across different departments from all over the force.
Mairi MacKenzie, IT Project Manager
In my role as an IT Project Manager, I am responsible for implementing and upgrading hardware and software used by officers and staff across the force. This can be down to the implementation of a brand-new system or hardware such as body-worn video through to a major upgrade of a current system.
When planning my return to work after my first child, I knew flexibility was important for my family and career. With the support of my managers and Staffordshire Police's flexible working policy, I have the added benefit of re-arranging the way I work to suit me and my family's needs, whilst still delivering quality outcomes.
