The OPCC Internship Programme

The OPCC understands that there are barriers to young people gaining entry to employment, especially since the COVID-19 pandemic which caused a significant rise in unemployment rates.

We want to empower our young people of Bedfordshire and provide an opportunity for 18-22 year olds to join the OPCC Internship Programme where they will gain experience and professional development. Interns will work on projects regarding safety and criminality issues that affect our younger communities. They will be paid above the national living wage whilst delivering positive outcomes for the people of Bedfordshire.

Each round of the programme will run for one month with a team of four interns. There will be three rounds of the programme with a team of four new interns in each round.

  • Round 1:  01/09/2021 – 30/09/2021 (closing date 18th July 2021)
  • Round 2: 01/11/2021 – 30/11/2021 (closing date – 12th September 2021)
  • Round 3: 10/01/2022 – 04/02/2022 (closing date 31st October 2021)
