Share this article

Who are the IOPC?

The IOPC oversees the police complaints system in England and Wales. We investigate the most serious matters, including deaths following police contact, and set out the standards by which the police should handle complaints. We use learning from our work to influence changes in policing.

We are independent, and make out decisions entirely independently of the police and government. Independent Office for Police Conduct

What is the Aspiring Professionals Programme?

This programme is our four-week, paid work placement for those who are either looking to begin their journey into work, or return to work following a career break. It is an opportunity to learn and develop work based skills, network with the organisation, learn more about work in the public whilst delivering on one of our projects. This experience helps to build confidence, learn new skills, create new relationships and discover new career paths.

  • The programme dates are 18 September 2023 – 13 October

Equality – Positive Action

At the IOPC, we are committed to building a workforce which reflects the diversity of the communities in which we serve. A more inclusive workforce enables us to be a more effective and efficient organisation, better understand and respond to the needs of our communities. Our workforce profile data shows that people who identify as black, Asian and minority ethnic are under-represented at the IOPC so for this role we will be using positive action when selecting candidates.

I would love if you could share this information with anyone in your network who you think would be interested or suitable for this programme. I have attached some promotional posters to share with more information on how to apply.

Please get in touch by emailing: [email protected] if you have any questions.
