Your application will be reviewed to ensure you are eligible
You will be invited to attend a values-based interview
If your interview is successful, your application will progress to vetting and medical checks

We will then contact your line manager and your current Force's HR department for a reference confirming your service dates, vetting, PSD checks and salary details

There will be an opportunity to discuss posting preferences in detail at the interview stage of your application
After starting with Wiltshire Police you will attend a one-week induction course
Postings are determined taking into account both individual preferences and the resourcing needs of the organisation. Whilst every effort will be made to meet individual preferences this, regrettably, cannot always be guaranteed. There will be an opportunity to discuss posting preferences in detail at the interview stage of your application.
All postings will require the individual to serve at least two years in that role unless organisational demands dictate otherwise or officers are successful with a promotion application.
The transfer process takes approximately four to six months from when we receive your application. However, this is subject to organisational requirement, satisfactory vetting, occupational health clearance and the date of planned intakes.
There are several things that can delay the process:
Failure to complete all parts of the application or to include copies of all the documents
The vetting process can take time. Full and timely completion of all application or correspondence from Wiltshire Police will assist us in this process
If you have an outstanding complaint or vetting issue
A medical query being raised by the occupational health doctor which may need reference to your doctor or specialist or if your current force is slow to provide your medical health notes. It is important that you understand any potential consequences to ill-health benefits arising from moving between forces following the changes to the Police Pension Scheme 2015. You should contact your pensions administrator in the first instance for further information.
