Kickstart your career in Criminal Justice

Here’s the good news – there are lots of career opportunities out there in the field of criminal justice, and they are also incredibly rewarding.

From joining a public sector organisation such as the police, prison or Probation Service, to working for a not-for-profit agency, there are multiple pathways graduates can take.

Helping witnesses cope with the emotional impact of giving evidence in court, supporting vulnerable young people and their families, or helping offenders lead law-abiding lives after release from prison, are all jobs our graduates have gone on to do.
