You must be a British citizen to work for the department. If you hold dual nationality, one component of which is British, you may also be considered. However, if successful, you may be asked to relinquish your nonBritish nationality (and any entitlement you may have to a foreign nationality) as a condition of your confirmation of appointment with the department.  One of your parents should also be British or have substantial ties to the UK. In the latter instance; substantial ties means that your parent is a citizen of a British Overseas Territory, a Commonwealth citizen, US citizen, EEA citizen, British national or citizen overseas, and they would need to have demonstrable connections with the UK by way of family history or have been resident here for a substantial period of time. 

If you’re already married to, or cohabiting with, a person who isn’t a British citizen, you may still be eligible for employment at the discretion of the department. You should note however, that marriage to, or cohabitation with, a person who isn’t a British citizen after appointment may, in some circumstances, result in the withdrawal of security clearance and subsequent transfer to another department, or (if this is not possible or the officer does not wish to transfer) dismissal. Each case will be considered on its merits, taking into account the ties between the person involved and the United Kingdom.

This post has been designated as requiring the following vetting levels in accordance with the National Vetting Policy – Police Management Vetting (MV) And National Security Vetting – Security Clearance Level (SC Enhanced). There may be a need to have a Devolved Vetting Level (DV). This means to be eligible to apply for this role you must have a 5 year ‘checkable history’ in the UK – ideally this means that you would have been resident in the UK for the last 5 years.  

Work on a bank or public holiday as part of the normal working week will be compensated in line with conditions of service.
