Trading Standards Information and Advice: Volunteers wanted for under-age sales campaigns

Lee Ede works as Lead Officer for Under Age Sales at Trading Standards and would like to offer young people the unpaid opportunity to assist officers with our Under Age Test Purchasing Operations across the County.

Volunteers will make test purchases of age-restricted goods (such as cigarettes, knives and alcohol) from shops. Some of the exercises take place during the evenings, but at all times you will be accompanied by Trading Standards Officers.

Volunteers would need to be between 14 and 16½ and you will need the permission of your parent or guardian.
