BTP’s mission is to work in partnership with others to help build a safe railway environment that is free from disruption and the fear of crime. PCSOs are vital in achieving our mission by acting as connector within our community and maintaining public confidence.
No two days will be the same as you help protect and reassure the passengers, railway staff and retailers within the BTP Community. As a national police force, we expect our people to be the best, without exception.
You’ll be willing to work hard to learn the skills you need to serve your community and reassure the public. You will have all the responsibilities of a PCSO but focused within a railway environment which will also allow you to enforce BTP Byelaws. Typical duties will include visible patrols at stations, assisting passengers and supporting staff.
We are looking for resilient individuals with a flair for customer service. An ability to engage with the community and forge strong links with our partner organisations is essential. Articulate, adaptable, and able to think on your feet, you’ll be known for your ability to resolve a diverse range of scenarios. Above all, you’ll see this not as a job, but as a vocation - and you’ll be passionate about having the chance to make a difference.
Join our driven and diverse team and you’ll find the rewards are as unique as the challenges.
We are looking to fill vacancies throughout 2014 in the following locations
Ebbsfleet, Crewe, Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham and London only
