Careers in Crime

Northumberland Building, Room 306


Find out about some extra career routes within the Police, Prisons and Voluntary sector working with offenders and ex-offenders which you may never have considered before. We will also be looking at working for Government organisations and how to improve your chances of securing the role.

This is a session aimed at students who think they would like to work with offenders or ex-offenders in a variety of roles to prevent criminal activity taking place. We will look at different career paths within Police, Prisons, Voluntary Sector and Government or Private organisations. We will encourage you to try and think what you can do to give yourself an advantage to working in this sector; particularly by securing some work experience or undertaking voluntary roles within the community. Finally we will look at some of the core competencies which organisations like you to demonstrate throughout the recruitment process and the importance of being non-judgemental, supportive and respectful.

If you require communication or access support please contact Careers and Employment to discuss ways of organising this,
