    Ive graduated in Criminology and Psychology and obtained a 2.1. Right now I wanted to become a police officer so ive applied for the specials passed recruitment now just awaiting the training dates.

    However Im wanting to go into any work with offenders, but what can I do ? Im currently doing a placement at a PRU. But where else can I work ? Ive looked at prison officer jobs however if im sucessful it will clash with the specials training as the prison officer training is for eight weeks in London.

    What sorts of jobs can I get into, with not much experience ?

    You could volunteer on a Referral Order Panel. A Refferal Order is a first time offender community sentence where a volunteer panel discuss and set with the young person a schedule of rehabilitation sessions (with a youth offending officer) and reparation tasks that they will complete.

    There used to be leaving custody support worker roles but I'm not sure if they still exist as non social work degree positions.

    Do a Guardian Jobs search of youth justice roles to establish where you can get a foot in the door. Good luck.
