Described as the 'greatest police force in the world', the Metropolitan Police Service employs over 44,000 people in a diverse range of roles from forensics to counter terrorism, accounting to nursing.

The Met is ever evolving: equipping officers with modern technology; transforming the way we deliver our services; reviewing our estate and building long term capability to ensure that we continue to make London the safest global city.

To ensure that our transformation is a success, and against a backdrop of ever changing crime patterns and a challenging budget, we are looking to recruit the most talented change professionals in the country.

We are recruiting into around 100 vacancies in 32 different roles and we are eager to hear from change professionals working within any sector.

Robin Wilkinson, Director of People and Change, Human Resources said:

"The breadth of work our new Transformation Directorate will undertake is unrivalled in any industry. The work impacts on how the Met safeguards the most vulnerable people in society, how the Met tackles and disrupts crime, through to ensuring we have the right people available to respond quickly and professionally in times of need.

"We are looking for change professionals from a variety of disciplines working in Portfolio and Programme Delivery, Integrated Design and Delivery and Business Change roles. Professionals with experience in communications and engagement, risk management, operating model design and project management are just a few of those we need to ensure our team is complete.

"In joining the Met you will be part of our Transformation Directorate. You will work in a professional change role which will face the challenge of delivering complex change right across the Met without risking operational delivery."

Sam Upton, a Blueprint and Insight Manager working in integrated design and delivery within the Transformation Directorate said:

"I have always been a passionate problem solver and was initially attracted to the Met by the prospect of tackling some of London's most challenging issues.

"That passion has taken me on a hugely varied and rewarding journey over the last 12 years to include supporting operating model design work covering virtually all the Met's local policing services in London.

"I can't think of many organisations where you can take that professional journey whilst at the same time having so much fun, making so many lifelong friends and being so regularly humbled by the dedication and professionalism of others."
