Job Description

As a PCSO, you’ll be at the heart of the community, protecting every journey, preventing trouble and making our communities safer and stronger.

As a reassuring presence at stations, you’ll assist passengers and work closely with Police Officers and railway staff. From dealing with security threats to undertaking minor crime investigations, no two days are ever the same as a PCSO. You’ll have to deal with some of the most challenging people in some of the most difficult situations. But your ability to build relationships will instantly inspire confidence.

To rise to all of these challenges takes a special kind of person. You’ll need to be resilient with a real flair for customer service. You’ll have the ability to engage with the community and forge strong links with our partner organisations.

Communicative, 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 won’t see this as a job, but as a vocation – and you’ll be passionate about having the chance to make a difference.

Please note that PCSO roles are only available in England and Wales.
