Role Purpose

Modern Apprenticeships (MA) offer new entrants to the labour market the chance of paid employment combined with the opportunity to do training relevant to the occupational area. They include the opportunity to gain nationally recognised qualifications that help kick-start a career without having to study full-time. New entrants include school and college leavers, those with no previous work experience and/or vocational qualifications.

An excellent opportunity has arisen for a young person to join the Justice Service Team as a Modern Apprentice, where during their time with us they will complete a period of study leading to a qualification.
This opportunity will also give the post holder a chance to work within a busy team, learning all aspects of a Clerical Role in the Justice Service Department.
