We are looking for a number of apprentices to join our Operational Delivery programme.
The Home Office is here to make our country safer. Border Force is a Law Enforcement arm of the Home Office with primary responsibility for UK Border Security, including counter terrorism, immigration and customs matters. We are responsible for managing the UK border control by enforcing immigration and customs regulations and working with the wider Home Office on organised crime, modern slavery and trafficking. This is some of the most important and challenging work in Government as it both protects and enhances the UK economy and if you are successful, you could be part of that.
The apprenticeship will take up to 18 months to complete, with a view to becoming a permanent Assistant Officer (AO) if you meet the selection criteria at the end of your apprenticeship.
This is a 24 hours a day, 365 days a year job and you will be working at one of the UK’s 140 seaports, airports, 200+ general aviation ports, postal depots and international rail network.
You could be engaged in a variety of exciting and flexible duties – such as checking all passengers arriving by sea or air for immigration control purposes as well as the detection and interception of prohibited goods (such as drugs, cash, tobacco, alcohol, firearms, counterfeit goods).
