In 2024 we will be hosting a sandwich placement internship where students are placed within a business area that supports their learning and development for 10 months (October 2024 to July 2025). Our schemes not only provide students with valuable knowledge to support their degree but also essential work experience to increase skills, experience and employability.
The internship is open to all undergraduate students, irrespective of degree subject. We will place interns in a department that best suits their desired outcomes and allocate a line manager to aid progression and track performance.
How the scheme works
Our internships provide undergraduates with the opportunity of paid work with Bedfordshire Police. During their internships, undergraduates will immerse themselves in the day-to-day work of a team whilst working on their specialised work package.
Interns will join us across a number of business areas and will be allocated a line manager. Performance will be assessed against our competency framework and regular performance reviews will be carried out.
Who we are looking for
We are looking for enthusiastic students who want to gain excellent employability skills alongside their degree studies. We want to appoint interns who are full of innovative ideas, have a great work ethic and who are capable of working within a team environment in a disciplined organisation.
Could you be the intern that brings new skills and a fresh perspective to help us challenge our existing ways of working?
What will you gain
Our internship programme allows young people, with a clear idea of their strengths and areas for further development, to gain paid experience in a working environment. We are determined to assist interns with their personal and professional development and provide tangible evidence of their achievements.
