Information for individuals who want to use their expert skills to work on short-term projects.
Associates provide services for specific, short-term pieces of work.
Associates are independent of the College and bring specialist skills to complement those of our staff. They include trainers, coaches, assessors, designers and expert witnesses.
You cannot apply to join an associate pool if you are a currently employed police officer or member of staff.
If you are a public sector employee, you may be eligible if you:
- work part time and are applying to be an associate during your non-working hours
- are to be engaged in associate work during non-paid leave.
This is to avoid dual payment for the same period of engagement.
If you are accepted into a pool
If you are accepted into an associate pool, it does not guarantee you will be offered work. Work is allocated through a fair and transparent process, detailed in the scope of work.
Payment is dependent on the nature of the work undertaken.
Pools open for applications
There are currently no pools open for applications.
