Dorset Police recognises the value and contribution of the Staff Support Networks that help us to create a fair and inclusive workplace, through support of staff in under-represented groups throughout the organisation. Staff support networks provide vital signposting, support and voices for our workforce and they act as a critical friend in relation to Force policies, procedures and processes. This role will provide support to that effort. Please note that you need to have lived in the UK for at least 3 years in order to be eligible to apply for any role in the Police.
