Apprentices perform a vital role within Greater Manchester Police, providing excellent customer service and administrative support to members of the public, colleagues and partners. We are recruiting Business Administration apprentices and would like to attract a wide range of applicants from our diverse communities across Greater Manchester.

Successful applicants will work alongside police officers and staff in a range of specialist policing support teams.

All of the positions will involve significant use of IT and excellent communication skills – face to face, telephone and in writing.

You will be working from day one but will also be receiving training from internal colleagues and our external training partner, Damar Training. Wherever you are based you will be required to work to high standards and under pressure, whilst treating people with respect and compassion. As you would expect, the highest standard of honesty and integrity is a requirement for this role.

You will need to be able to demonstrate your ability to work with others, both customers and internal colleagues as part of a team. You will also need to describe, in your application, why you feel you are suited to working for Greater Manchester Police as an apprentice.

Whilst there are no specific qualifications required, you will need to demonstrate ability in English, Maths and IT at a level that will allow you to achieve the apprenticeship and to competently carry out the role. You will study for an intermediate (Level 2) apprenticeship in Business Administration.

The apprenticeship will be for a period of 12 months, with the opportunity to apply for internal vacancies within the last 6 months.

An attractive and competitive salary is provided: £10,932 per annum, rising to £13,425 per annum (subject to satisfactory attendance, performance and qualification progress). Working hours will be 36.25 per week, Monday to Friday.

This is a great opportunity for an exciting new career with Greater Manchester Police.
