Volunteer test purchaser

Are you interested in a career in law enforcement? Would you like to gain some experience of working in a law enforcement setting?

Trading Standards are seeking volunteers aged 14 or 15 to assist them with their age restricted sales test purchasing program.

Volunteers are needed to assist trading standards officers to conduct checks on shops and attempt to buy age restricted products such as alcohol, cigarettes, fireworks and knives.

Potential volunteers must be representative of their age (i.e they should not look older than they are) and be willing to participate. Permission from their parent(s) or guardian(s) will be required.

Volunteers would work under close supervision and in accordance with strict Home Office guidelines to ensure their safety and well being at all times.

We will arrange a meeting with parents/guardians to explain the operational structure and complete the necessary paperwork.

Volunteers will not be asked to work in their local area or anywhere they may feel uncomfortable and will be provided with refreshments throughout the day/evening.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer test purchaser call: 01926 738987.
