Underage sales volunteering

Trading Standards regularly need young volunteers to assist with our programme of age restricted products test purchasing such as cigarettes, alcohol and fireworks.

We are looking for volunteers around the age of 13-16 (no older than 16 years and 6 months).  Volunteers should be no less than 18 months younger than the age restriction for any particular product and should not look older than the age restriction in question.

Volunteers are given training in what to say and do on the exercises and supervised by an officer at all times.

If you know anyone who would like to become a volunteer, please contact us
