Metropolitan Police Service Internal Vacancies

Welcome to the Met’s online recruitment system. From here, you can search and apply for vacancies within the Met.

You can search for vacancies by clicking here. Each vacancy will have an online application form should you wish to apply. Sensitive, or confidential, vacancies are listed on the Restricted page – these can only be viewed from a Met device or whilst working on an Aware desktop. All other vacancies can be accessed and applied to from home or whilst in the office.

Registering and Applying

To apply for a vacancy, and follow the progress of your application, you will need to register for an account. You only need to register once, and can do this by clicking ‘register’ in the top-right corner of this page. If trying to apply for a vacancy before you’ve registered, you will be prompted at that stage.

Please note, usernames and passwords are case sensitive. Should you forget your password, you will need to select the ‘forgot your password’ link on the log-in page.


To apply for roles advertised on this site, you must:

  • Be an existing employee of the Met who has completed their probationary period; or
  • Be working with the Met as an agency worker, and have completed 12 months of continuous service with the organisation; or
  • Be a Met Special Constable who has undertaken at least 200 duty hours within the last 12 months; or
  • Be a Met Volunteer who has volunteered for at least 12 months, averaging at least ten hours volunteering per month, and consistently attending VPC meetings over the last year; and
  • You meet all specific eligibility criteria as referenced in the job advert.

Whilst Police Officers and Volunteer Groups (MSC, MVP and VPC) are eligible to apply for internally advertised police staff roles, applications from existing police staff and agency workers will be considered first.

If you do not meet the above criteria, you can view and apply for opportunities advertised to external candidates by clicking here.

Discuss with your Line Manager

Ahead of applying for a role, you should always discuss your application with your Line Manager. Your Line Manager will no longer be asked to countersign your application prior to submission, but if offered a role, your Line Manager will be asked to verify your evidence and feed into pre-posting checks as appropriate.

Best of luck with your application!
