You will need to pass the assessment centre like any other force. This includes writen application, English, maths, verbal reasoning, information accuracy etc...

BTP were very good to me regarding flexible hours, I would often work within the core hours between 8 till 6pm and was offered overtime as an additional option.I have a child of school age so I would normally come in between 9 till 5pm, if I couldn't work a particular day maybe due to school strike/or inset training day, or for a hospital appointment for my children, then I would work on a Saturday or Sunday to make up my hours as my bosses were excellent to me.
