In response to the increased UK threat level from terrorism, and to ensure BTP have the right level of resources to respond to any threat, we are significantly increasing our armed capacity by opening new hubs in the Midlands and North West.

To help train and support these new teams, we are looking for six Firearms Instructors in the rank of Constable to join our central-London Specialist Operations Department.

Candidates will be qualified Firearms Instructors and experienced ARV officers, and will teach, train and coach all staff involved in the management, command and deployment of BTP firearms officers. You will support BTP’s on-going firearms training programme, qualification shoots, and all other training to support the Chief Firearms Instructor and Deputy Chief Firearms Instructor.

Candidates must be prepared to meet the physical requirements of the role with an ability to run to level 9.4 on the Job-Related Fitness Test. Officers must also be prepared to undertake enhanced BTP vetting and medical checks to further determine suitability for the role.

Whilst the post is primarily based in London, officers may be called upon to work across the country and may be required to travel at short notice. Overnight stays may also be required during periods of training delivery.

Unfortunately we are not accepting applications from Civil Nuclear Constabulary or Ministry of Defence officers at this time.
