Discover the opportunities and benefits of a career in the criminal justice sector at a free recruitment event being held this weekend.
Organisations and charities including Wiltshire Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner, Wiltshire Police, the Crown Prosecution Service, Horizon Victims Service and more will be explaining their roles in the justice system as well as discussing job opportunities within the sector.
The event, which has been organised by the OPCC in conjunction with the Wiltshire Criminal Justice Board, is aimed at school and college leavers, as well as anyone looking for a career change and may be interested in the criminal justice sector.
Wiltshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner Phillip Wilkinson said: “A career in the criminal justice sector is hugely rewarding and the work being done to fight crime,support victims and rehabilitate perpetrators is crucial. Only by being part of a holistic approach to crime, early intervention and prevention can we help to ensure our communities are safer.
“I want to encourage as many young people as possible to explore job opportunities within the sector, as well as improve the public’s understanding of how the justice system works.
“Free events like this enable us to be more present within our local communities and ensure those services which are there to help them are representative of the communities they serve, a vital component outlined within my Police and Crime Plan. Together we can work in partnership and contribute to making Wiltshire a safer place to live, work and visit.”
Making Justice Work will be held on November 19th from 10.30am-3.30pm at STEAM in Swindon and is open to all members of the public.
