Theresa May has pledged to expand internships and the UK’s national security service’s (NSB) new security jobs scheme will be made available to more people, with an emphasis on overseas territories and “specialised areas”.
The Home Office said in a statement that the first batch of 10 internships were due to be offered by March and that more would be announced later.
The Home Office also said the scheme would help people gain skills in a range of areas, including the provision of secure, professional and effective communication, communications, information, surveillance and counter-terrorism.
The job-seekers would be trained in a variety of ways, including in security assessments and in developing skills for the roles they would undertake.
The Home Secretary said the new internships would “strengthen the skills and expertise of our workforce and ensure that they are always up to date and up to the latest security requirements”.
The scheme is set to see up to 1,000 people on the job during the first year of its existence.
While the Home Office has not yet announced any details of the new jobs, it said that some of its previous schemes, including a national employment service, the National Jobcentre Plus, had seen a significant increase in job seekers over the past year.
In April, the Home Secretary announced that up to 400 new security positions would be created across the UK.
We know there are a lot of people out there who want to help us and that’s why we’ve introduced a range the government will be able to use for its own benefit.” “
Internships help those who would otherwise be out of work.

The National Security Skills Training Scheme was launched in June this year to provide the Home Secretaries own-hire services to train people for roles in national security, including defence, intelligence and security.
At the time, the Government said the schemes aim to help to “build skills that enable the nation to meet its security needs and protect itself from attack”.
There are currently 1,400 jobs in the UK currently available for foreign nationals and they range from entry level security officers to the highest levels of senior leadership positions.
