Our job of the week this week is a great opportunity with the Met Police.
This job is aimed at 16-17 year olds who will gain a valuable two weeks work experience during April.
The internship is called the Met Futures Scheme - with all parts taking place virtually and roles will be paid.
The Met Corporate departments taking part in the programme include:
Strategy and Governance
Media and Communications
There is also an employability training week taking place during February Half Term to help with CV writing and practice mock interviews.
The young people will leave the scheme with a leadership (ILM) certificate qualification and will attend a virtual graduation ceremony before they continue to build their skills and knowledge through one-to-one sessions with a personally allocated mentor.
Chief of Corporate Services for the Metropolitan Police Service, Robin Wilkinson, said: “We are delighted to announce the Met Futures programme and look forward to welcoming the young people to our Corporate Services internship this year.
“The Met is one of the largest employers in London and we want to be the employer of choice for young Londoners. This Corporate Services internship scheme is one of the ways in which the Met supports young people as they begin their careers.
“The Met already offers a wide breadth of interesting and rewarding career paths, for a range of fantastic people with diverse skills and life experiences, and we will continue to employ new talent from diverse backgrounds.
“Police staff roles are integral to the everyday running of the Met and we employ over 10,000 members of staff who work to help keep London safe.
“We are excited to meet the first cohort joining us and feel that not only do we have a lot to teach them from our experience, we also expect to learn a huge amount from them.”
