Students attended a Careers in Criminal Justice event

On Wednesday 11 March the School of Social Sciences Employability Team hosted an event entitled Succeed with Social Sciences: Careers in Criminal Justice. The event was aimed at undergraduate and postgraduate students from within the School of Social Sciences interested in pursuing a career in the criminal justice field.

The event was attended by over 100 students and welcomed speakers from a range of organisations within the criminal justice sector. These included HMP Whatton, The National Probation Service, Nottinghamshire Police and Nottingham Refugee Forum.

Lyn Saunders, Governor of HMP Whatton, gave an interesting and informative talk about the medium secure facility in Nottinghamshire. In her presentation she gave students an overview of HMP Whatton and an insight into the prison’s approach to preventing reoffending. She also discussed the different organisations working in collaboration with HMP Whatton and highlighted the different sorts of roles that graduates could hope to secure in the criminal justice sector.

At the end of the event, students had the opportunity to talk with the speakers, ask them questions and network in an informal setting. Helen Reed, Employability Coordinator in the School of Social Sciences said: "A packed audience enjoyed a wide range of speakers including representatives from Nottinghamshire Police and The National Probation Service. After the presentations the students engaged in some enthusiastic networking."
