As Driver Maintenance Officer (DMO) you will carry out a range of duties including transportation of people and items (post/stores etc), vehicle safety checks and valets, general office/building maintenance/furniture moves and miscellaneous duties as directed.

Due to the requirement to drive police vehicles applicants must be in possession of a full, current driving licence (ideally including driving Category D1) and there will be a requirement to undertake and pass a basic police driving test, as part of the recruitment process.


Durham Constabulary has a strict vetting requirement and any offer of employment will be subject to appropriate vetting levels which will be maintained / updated throughout the period of service. In addition, applicants should have been a UK resident for at least 3 years prior to the date of application. However in the event that applicants have not been resident in the UK for at least 3 years and can provide a VERIFIABLE certificate from the Police of any country where they have taken temporary residence to indicate that they have not been convicted of any offence whilst in that country or involved in any investigation by a Law Enforcement Agency which includes being interviewed, arrested, issued with any penalty notice, charged or cautioned irrespective of whether that offence is an offence within the United Kingdom, then this will be considered as part of the recruitment vetting process. Individuals who are not able to meet this criteria will be subject to appropriate risk assessment by the Force Counter Corruption & Vetting Unit.


Any tattoo anywhere on the body that is obscene, or advocates sexual, racial, ethnic, or religious discrimination, by written word or design is prohibited and the presence of such a tattoo would preclude an applicant from passing the recruitment process for employment with the Constabulary.

How to apply

Durham Constabulary welcome applications from everyone, but as members of ethnic minority groups are currently under-represented we would encourage applications from these groups. Appointment will be based on merit.
