Campaigns Officer, Eleisha Flemming-Moon, joined Lancashire Police in 2021 following a career in marketing in the private sector working for a full-service marketing agency. Eleisha said: “I was thrilled to have secured a position within the Media and Engagement department for Lancashire Police. I knew how important this team were and how integral their work was to deliver the force’s priorities and values. Working for this department is both very busy and very varied, making it an exciting place to work.

“Since I joined the Constabulary, I have worked on a whole range of campaign topics, including anti-social behaviour, dangerous driving on our roads and many more. From this work I have had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of people across the force from colleagues in my department, staff based out in division, Police Officers and even the Chief Constable Chris Rowley himself.”

“I have had the opportunity to further develop my skills and knowledge and am constantly learning which is brilliant. I receive regular training and have been given the option to pursue further education and qualifications if I wish – last year I even attended a national conference for police communicators in the UK.”

“I would recommend pursuing a career at Lancashire Constabulary if you are looking to make a real difference to those in the county. It is not just officers on the beat who can help impact the lives of those living and working in Lancashire and being part of the Media and Engagement team you can really see how your work benefits those in our wonderful county.”

Press Officer, Aban Quaynor, joined following a career in community and crime reporting, most recently as the Lancashire Evening Telegraph’s Chief Reporter, so he’s accustomed to a fast-paced, news environment. Aban said: “It’s a bit of a cliché but there isn’t at typical day – because of the incidents you’re dealing with, it varies day to day. Being on call is decisive stuff, but I quite enjoy the pressure and the feeling of responsibility that you’re the person the officers are coming to for help. There have been a couple of times where I’ve put out wanted appeals and people have handed themselves in directly as a result of that, or a press release has gone national. It really shows where you’ve made a difference.”

“You get that bug for reporting on crime, but with journalism you can get burnt out and it came to the point where I needed a change. I’d had five years of dealing with Lancashire Constabulary and had only heard good things, so it was the perfect opportunity when the Press Officer role came up. Everyone was so welcoming straight from the off, I felt part of the team straight way and the wider department was very welcoming too.”

Recruitment Marketing Lead, Hayley Wallis, joined Lancashire Police as a Campaigns Officer following a career in marketing in both the private and public sector, latterly in Higher Education so has a broad range of experience. Hayley said: “I was delighted to secure a position at Lancashire Constabulary and couldn’t wait to start.  I don’t think I quite anticipated how central the Media and Engagement department is to every function in the organisation which makes this department extremely busy and very varied but best of all, a very exciting place to work.”

“I have had opportunities to work on a variety of campaigns since starting, including shaping and informing our approach to knife crime prevention which was very interesting indeed.  Within 6 months of joining the team, an opportunity in the department became available for a Recruitment Marketing Lead and I was successful in my application.  I am now leading on the forces attraction strategy and plan all of our attraction and recruitment campaigns.  I get to meet lots of different people, from front line Police Officers to Control Room colleagues and get to find out about every area of the organisation and what they do to keep Lancashire safe.”

“I have had opportunities to develop my skills and knowledge and am constantly learning which is brilliant.  I can honestly say that I feel like I have hit the jackpot in working with everyone in my department.  It is fun, fast paced, friendly and supportive and I couldn’t ask for a better team to work with.”

“I would absolutely recommend pursuing a career in Lancashire Constabulary.  It is a great organisation that genuinely puts its people at the heart of everything it does.  If you want a career which can make a real and positive impact upon people lives then look no further.
