Hertfordshire Constabulary is committed to building our relationships with under-represented groups and encouraging them to join our policing family.

Under-represented characteristics may include one or more of the protected characteristics below:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Gender Reassignment
  • Marriage and Civil Partnership
  • Pregnancy and Maternity
  • Race
  • Religion or Belief
  • Sex
  • Sexual Orientation

From the moment you come into contact with the police family at Hertfordshire Constabulary we want you to feel recognised as an individual.

We’re seeking people who possess the skills, experience and potential to become superb police officers. Positive Action is the name given to measures under the Equality Act 2010 that promote equality of opportunity. The Equality Act empowers us to remove these barriers when they are in connection to a protected characteristic, so that we can work together towards achieving true equality.

People with language skills, different cultures or backgrounds are encouraged to apply to join our workforce. The Positive Action recruitment team creates a level playing field; supporting a protected group by overcoming a disadvantage, meeting a particular need or encouraging participation in an activity where it is disproportionately low.

Positive Action is lawful and can be used to redress any imbalance of opportunity or disadvantage that an individual with a protected characteristic could face. Every candidate who enters our recruitment process is assessed on equal merit, this means candidates are scored at every stage of the application process. Guidance for applying positive action is set out in the Equality Act 2010 and Hertfordshire Constabulary follows this rigorously to ensure we apply the law in a professional environment.
