Superintendent Transfer and Promotions

West Midlands Police are pleased to invite applications for the role of Superintendent.

Applications are invited from internal and external Chief inspectors who have been substantive in role for 12 months or more and from existing external Superintendents for transfer.

West Midlands Police is the second largest police force in the country, covering an area of 348 square miles and serving a population of almost 2.8 million.

The region sits at the very heart of the country and covers the three major centres of Birmingham, Coventry and Wolverhampton. It also includes the busy and thriving districts of Sandwell, Walsall, Solihull and Dudley. Leisure, retail and conference amenities, together with Premiership and Championship football teams, attract millions of visitors annually.

An average of 170,000 motorists travel through the region daily, making our motorways some of the busiest in Europe.

Against this backdrop, the force deals with more than 2,000 emergency calls for help every day, as well as patrolling the streets and responding to incidents 24-hours-a-day, seven days a week.

The West Midlands is an area rich in diversity, with 18 per cent of its population from ethnic minority backgrounds. Ensuring diversity, both through the people who work for us and the way in which we serve and protect our communities, is a key priority for us. We are looking for Superintendents who can drive forward our equality and diversity strategy, build trust and confidence and ensure an inclusive approach.

Successful applicants will also be required to undertake wider leadership in their cadre roles contributing to force priorities and performance, (for example, firearms, public order, kidnap and extortion, senior investigating officer, SME, etc’)

If you feel engaged by our vision and values, have a passion for people, colleagues and communities, an appetite to work in a challenging and complex organisation and embodiment our force values and Leadership Promise we would like to hear from you.

Assessment centres will take place between 29th April and 10th May.
