Cheshire Constabulary Promotion Opportunities

Here at Cheshire Constabulary we strive to develop our workforce, we do this is through running promotional campaigns.

Promotional opportunities are made available to both internal and external candidates who meet the basic eligibility requirements.

Cheshire Constabulary will be opening for Inspectors Promotion Process on the 15th June 2018

For the first time in Cheshire Constabulary the assessment of the promotion process will be based against the CVF (Competency and Value Framework) and not against the personal qualities.

The Retained HR function will be running workshops on the CVF and providing guidance to applicants on how to evidence against the CVF. Retained HR will be there to support the transition of using the personal qualities to evidencing against the CVF.

What to expect the promotion processes to look like (in brief)

  • Application form
  • Q&A Session for individuals shortlisted
  • Management Aptitude tests
  • Interview including a delivery of a presentation


Please find a list of workshops/drop-in sessions that have been scheduled in. There will be someone there from Retained HR to answer any questions you may have. They are booked in from 9am – 4pm, no time slot required just book on via the recruitment system (WCN)

Familiarisation event

We will be running a familiarisation event where we will have an input on the people promise, inputs from individuals who have been through similar processes, an input on the process from the recruitment and promotions team and it will be opened by ACC Sacha Hatchett. We will also have support from members of the staff support networks and a Q&A session.

It will be at Cheshire Constabulary Headquarters. The event isn't mandatory but is a great chance to ask any questions that you may have, listen to advice from others who have been in similar processes or have experience with the processes/force and hopefully take away some really valuable information.

Officers considering applying should be initiating conversations with their line managers and only apply if they have line manager support and believe they are fully operational competent and ready for promotion. This should be evidenced within individuals PDRs demonstrating competence in current rank and Continual Professional Development.

External only: Your application form will need line manager, Area Commander/ Head of Department and Chief Superintendent Authorisation.

Internal candidates do not require line management/Head of Department support.

All candidates require their application examples to be verified.
