The two candidates were chosen after a rigorous selection process which concluded with a round of interviews at Newby Wiske on Friday 11 July 2014.

They will now attend the National Assessment Centre at Bramshill, where they will undertake a further programme of demanding tests to evaluate their ability to perform effectively in the rank of Superintendent..

North Yorkshire Police received 67 applications for the Direct Entry Programme from talented candidates from a range of industries including the legal sector, the military, local government, health and social care, and private business.

Seven of those candidates made it through to the interview stage.

Assistant Chief Constable Paul Kennedy, of North Yorkshire Police, said:

“The calibre of the candidates who applied for the Direct Entry Programme was very impressive and I am delighted that so many talented individuals showed an interest in working for North Yorkshire Police."

“The selection process was extremely tough, which it needed to be to ensure we are putting the right applicants through to the next stage, and I am really pleased that we have identified two people to progress to the National Assessment Centre."

“I would like to think all the candidates who applied for the scheme and wish the two successful candidates the best of luck at Bramshill.”

The two candidates who made it through will visit the National Assessment Centre between 28 July and 4 August 2014, to undertake the next stage in the recruitment process.

They will face a number of different scenarios which will evaluate their ability to perform competently in the role, their potential and motivation to reach the Chief Officer ranks, and their ability to bring new perspectives and ways of thinking to the police service.
