Tasmania Police use a rolling recruitment process which means your application is processed as soon as you apply. There are a number of steps in the recruitment process which can take between 3–6 months to complete. These steps are highlighted on the Recruitment Process page of this site.

As Tasmania Police use a rolling recruitment process invitations to assessment events can be sent out sometimes 6 -12 weeks in advance of the assessment day.

If you are considering applying for any of the upcoming courses you would need to submit your application at least 6 months in advance of the start date in order to give yourself the best opportunity to complete all our steps in the application process.

Upon successful completion of all the recruitment steps, offers of employment are sent to applicants generally 8 weeks out from the commencement date of the course.
