Police launch apprenticeships
3:35pm Thursday 26th September 2013 in News
Young people are being offered the chance to join a new apprentice scheme run by Greater Manchester Police.
Successful recruits will become Operational Support Officers (OSOs) and will work alongside police officers and staff in a range of specialist policing support teams.
The apprentices will receive on-the-job training to help them develop skills in areas such as customer service, office administration and IT support. The project will result in the appointment of up to 50 new apprentice OSOs working in a range of specialist areas across the force, and they are expected to start from December.
Billa Duggal, GMP’s apprenticeship co-ordinator, said: “We want to encourage applicants from a wide range of backgrounds, particularly young people aged 18-24 who are not in education, employment or training, as this is an exciting opportunity which offers an apprenticeship salary that compares very favourably to the apprentice national minimum wage.”
The deadline for applications for the scheme is October 4. To view vacancies: visit apprenticeships.org.uk For further information: call Damar Training on 0161 480 8171 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
