Short-term secondee programme

HMICFRS is continually looking for people from the police and fire and rescue services to join our inspection teams on short term secondments.

Seconded officers and staff bring valuable insight and experience of current policing and fire service practices into our inspections.

The role of secondees (operational and non-operational) from forces and services is to help support the inspections of the fire and rescue services and police forces.

Please note: secondments are typically only for the following ranks:

  • Watch manager and above
  • Police sergeant or police staff equivalent and above


Any short-term secondee roles will be advertised on this page. If there is no information below this line then we are not currently recruiting for short-term secondees.
