Queensland Police Pipes and Drums

My name is Mel Cowie and I am the Officer in Charge of the Queensland Police Pipes and Drums. I hope you don’t mind me emailing you today, however I thought you may like to know that the Queensland Police Service have advertised two full time (non-police) vacancies. One is for a Pipe Major and the other is for a Bandsperson – Drummer (see attached Position Descriptions).

Could I respectfully seek your support in assisting me to share these vacancies (Pipe Major: https://smartjobs.qld.gov.au/jobs/QLD-266455-18 and Drummer:https://smartjobs.qld.gov.au/jobs/QLD-266428-18) throughout your networks (social media sites, website, newsletters, other publications) to enable us to reach as many people we can in an endeavour to find the best applicants for these positions.

Additional Information

The applicant must be an Australian citizen or residing in Australia and have permission under Commonwealth law to work in Australia and remain in Australia indefinitely to be permanently appointed to the Queensland Public Service (section 127 of the Public Service Act 2008).

Applicants are advised that the QPS will initiate a criminal history and/or integrity check on the preferred applicant, if not already a member of the Service.

Please feel free to contact me if you require any further information.

Many sincere thanks in advance for your support.
