Job Opportunities 



NARPO Nationally carries many advertisements for employment opportunities that could benefit you locally.

So if you interested in part time or full time employment there may be opportunities here worth considering. Just click on the link.


The following has been received from Danny Ahearne at the Police Federation and may be of interest to retired officers:

I hope you are keeping well and thanks for attending the pre-retirement course.


I have been contacted by an officer from the Senedd who has informed me that there are vacancies within the security team.


He has asked if the advert can be circulated by ourselves and NARPO as they are keen to recruit retried officers.


The link is below.





The following message has been received by our Branch Secretary and is published here for the information of our members:

I am writing to ask if you would be kind enough to circulate to your members, a message regarding a job opportunity with South Gloucestershire Council for a full-time limited term contract for 7 months as a Community Safety Officer.


The requirement is to cover maternity absence. This might be particularly suited to a retired member who does not want to commit to a new career but has spare capacity to take on a role until the end of January 2023. It is anticipated there will be a limited training requirement, dependant upon the police background roles previously performed.


As a guide, this role has some similarities to neighbourhood policing but face to face work with the public is very much discretionary. It is not a patrol function but focuses on partnership working with statutory agencies in the response to anti-social behaviour. There is no confrontational element to this role. The job involves flexible working from home with occasional attendance at our offices in Yate. Such attendance is mostly managed by the post holder at their discretion. Salary is (pro rata) £30,095 The following link will take you to the job application on the South Gloucestershire Council website.


If anyone would like to contact me directly for an informal conversation about the role, they would be most welcome. My contact details are below. You have my full permission to disclose my personal information below in any publication you see fit in order to promote this employment opportunity.


Yours faithfully, Antony Ducker
