To protect such an important commodity, as well as the public, we are a police force like no other, offering a variety of Police Officer and support roles at all levels. By protecting nuclear materials on site and in transit. We play a vital role.

The Civil Nuclear Constabulary (CNC) follows the National Recruitment Standards in accordance with Home Office Guidelines and processes for recruiting Officers into the Constabulary. Our selection processes are based on ability, skills and expertise. We recruit the very best people based on merit, regardless of gender, race, religious beliefs, sexual preference or anything else unrelated to the role. The nature of our work means that we have to conduct a rigorous application process which, of necessity, can also be quite lengthy. The process involves a variety of screening checks, as well as security and reference checks. This is an essential part of ensuring that we recruit the most able individuals and that you are right for us – as well as ensuring that joining us is the right move for you.

Our Policing priorities include: national and international terrorism, information and technology proliferation, protection of site and facilities from incursion and unlawful protest as well as crime committed within site areas.
