On Wednesday 9 March the School with Social Sciences held a Careers in Criminal Justice event as part of the School of Social Sciences' employability programme.

The event, hosted in conjunction with Nottingham Law School, was attended by over 100 students. The audience was treated to presentations from individuals working in a range of roles in the criminal justice sector. Speakers at the event included Lynn Saunders, Governor of HMP Whatton, John Wright from the Youth Justice Service and Simon Pealing, formerly a Chief Inspector with Nottinghamshire Police.

Following the presentations students had the opportunity to engage with the speakers during a networking session. This provided an excellent opportunity for students to ask the speakers any questions that they had and receive advice and information that would help them pursue a career in the criminal justice field.

Helen Reed, Employability Coordinator in the School of Social Sciences said: "The event was really well attended, showing just how interested social science students are in careers in criminal justice. All the speakers spoke about the need for experience and the importance of volunteering. Several students signed up for volunteering opportunities at the event and many others are investigating the opportunities in the criminal justice sector."
