WAPOL/SAPOL Recruitment?
 
Hello Expats,
I'm desperate to get out to Australia and join my old colleagues in Perth or Adelaide.

Does anyone on the other side of the world know when they'll be recruiting internationally again.

Kind regards

Martin

Martin,

I'm in the same situation as yourself, waiting for another overseas campaign so that I can put an application in.

There was a Twitter comment a while back from one of the bosses at WAPOL along the lines of that he didn't foresee the need to recruit internationally as there were plenty of able local applicants. SAPOL have not recruited from the UK for a few years now.

The long and short of it is that I have no idea if or when they will recruit again, but thought I would reply with what I do know as I saw your question had been unanswered for a few days, and know how frustrating that is!

Regards,

ST

Hi ST,
Looks like we'll just have to wait it out. Just wish they would give us some indication as to whether they will or won't be looking internationally again.

Fingers crossed for the future.

Going by the past few years, the police keep their cards pretty close to their chests, and until there is a big announcement from one state I doubt there will be anything concrete.

There are waiting lists to join in most, if not all, states these days, so as with paramedics there is less need to sponsor transferees from abroad. Its just cheaper and easier to get Aussies into the job.

One thing I'm fairly sure of is that if and when there is another recruiting drive it'll be posted on here. I'm sure some of the successgul posters from previous campaigns will post if they hear anything :)

They've just done a massive local recruit drive (and are now running a horse recruitment drive :):):) )if the got enough local candidates, unlikely they would do an international one.

A little thread bump. I've been checking all the usual outlets for info fairly regularly, but all seems very quiet. It appears that recruiting is progressing fine with enough local recruits meaning little or no requirement to look to the UK. Anyone heard rumour of anything of any possible international campaigns?

Just the opposite I'm afraid, keep hearing how there are plenty of onshre applicants.

Hi all, I emailed them direct last week and they said they have "no plans at this stage" for an international campaign but from what I've heard they have said that in the past and then launched one soon after so not much help really!

In current state climate (WA being broke), I wouldn't expect and international drive for a year or two atleast or they'd have us taxpayers to answer to.

Fair point teza! Thanks for posting, it's good to get a feel for local opinion.

Current hiring freeze in WA gov't until 30 June so I wouldn't expect anything until at least then. Even then there's all the permanent staff who've been displaced that they need to find jobs for before hiring from outside.

I heard about that Dorothy but did I read that police and teachers are exempt from the freeze? (Not internationally, just within WA).

As many have already said, they have sufficient recruits locally, so are unlikely, in the forseeable future, to recruit internationally
