The job is what you make of it. There are plenty of opportunities at every station you go to, the opportunities differ at every station though for example; some stations you’ll get ASV (armed support vehicle, extra weapons and drill training) trained immediately, other stations you won’t get ASV trained for a couple years and others you won’t get ASV trained at all. However there are plenty of other courses to go on, some of my colleagues at AWE (where max is) get course opportunities like personal safety training instructors, fitness instructors, various TSG roles and SEG roles. Because the funding is there. On a day to day basis at the AWE sites you won’t do much policing from what I gather so if you want a quieter job that isn’t too stressful then that’ll be the stations for you. There is also lots of overtime available (as much as you want from what I’ve been told) which amounts to a fair bit of extra pay. An example of a busier station as regards to actual policing opportunities would be Portsmouth (where I am) who are recruiting heavily right now both on the marine unit and Landside. I won’t go into too much detail and there’s only so much I can talk about, I am happy to answer any questions though because I remember being on the other side of recruitment and finding answers to all my questions was a nightmare!
