Cheshire Constabulary to run two promotion processes Date published: 23rd March 2018 4.52pm

Cheshire Constabulary will be looking to run two promotion processes in the up and coming months.

We will be looking to run an Inspector Promotion process and a Superintendent Promotion process.

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. For more information visit the College of Policing website

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

Inspector Promotion Process

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

Superintendent Promotion Process

  • Application form
  • Q&A Session for individuals shortlisted
  • Management aptitude tests and personality questionnaire
  • Stakeholder panel
  • Interview including a delivery of a presentation

Dates of events, key recruitment dates and further information will be confirmed in the next couple of weeks.  

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.

Your application form will need to be endorsed and you will need to be supported for the promotion process. For Inspectors you will need Area Commander/ Head of Department and Chief Superintendent. For Superintendents you will need line management support and Chief Officer Support.
