The Metropolitan Police Service is the largest police service in the UK. It is the role of the Met’s 45,000 Warranted Officers, Community Support Officers, Special Constables and Support Staff to ensure the safety and security of London’s wonderfully diverse and multicultural population of over 9 million residents, as well as thousands of daily commuters, tourists and visitors. The Met is already the biggest and the most diverse it’s ever been and this will be the biggest year yet for Police Officer growth. Attracting, engaging and identifying the best talent for both Police Officer and Police Staff roles across the Met is a large-scale, complex and challenging task, which is why the Met is now seeking a talented Resourcing Attraction specialist to join their Resourcing team.

You’ll also develop and implement a comprehensive and engaging social media program strategy, working closely with marketing and communications colleagues and media agencies to deliver engaging content that can be customised across multiple platforms.
To be considered you will ideally demonstrate:
- Experience within an in-house recruitment function, devising and developing attraction strategies for recruitment/talent
