Three young apprentices are being offered the chance to get a head start in a career working with offenders.
Lancashire Probation Trust has created three apprenticeships to give young people earn money and learn about the industry, working in a variety of departments.
Kerry McKevitt, director of human resources, said: “We understand that now more than ever it is really difficult for young people to have the chance to gain experience and develop new skills.
“As an organisation we believe in our aims of changing lives and improving communities so thought what better way to do this than offer a chance to young people wanting to start out in their careers.
“The successful apprentices will get the chance to work in an organisation that puts our people at the heart of everything we do.
“We have demonstrated this by achieving the Gold Investors in People standard, awarded to just three per cent of employers nationally, and are looking forward to welcoming our new apprentices to the headquarters team.” The closing date is August 17 and for more information visit lancashireprobation.co.uk.
