Bedfordshire Police is a well-respected, high-performing, efficiently run police service working together with others to protect people and keep Bedfordshire safe. Bedfordshire Police is dedicated to "protecting people and fighting crime together". A key part of our approach is to seek out new and innovative ways of introducing skills and fresh perspectives into the organisation to feed our culture of continuous improvement. As part of this strategy we offer Summer Placement Internships.
Bedfordshire Police is recruiting for the Summer Internship. The scheme gives undergraduates an opportunity to work within Bedfordshire Police for up to 10 weeks. The Summer Internship is only open to those who are willing to spend thier time on a full-time basis over the summer months 2019. During their internships, undergraduates will join their departments, immersing themselves in the day to day work of their team whilst working on their specialised work package provided by their supervisor.
The Internship Programmes are designed to assist students develop in six key areas:
Our Internships give young people access to new skills and a better
appreciation of the challenges facing policing today.
Bedfordshire is the first force in the country to offer paid internships to undergraduate students. Since 2014, we have run a 10-week summer intern programme, in which we invite up to 15 students to join us over the university summer break. Following its success, we launched our sandwich placement scheme in 2017 that allows 5 undergraduates into the force for up to a 10-month (39 weeks) sandwich year placement.
As part of the online application students will be asked to complete a 500 word summary of why you wish to work with us at Bedfordshire Police, what skills you can bring and how you would like to develop. Following on from this, if shortlisted you will be invited to an assessment centre which will consist of a variety of group activities and one face to face interview at the end of the day. This will be in the early part of 2019.
The Summer Internship will run from 8th July to 6th September 2019.
