Ashleigh Coney

Ashleigh Coney BSc Hons Criminology

“I have received some fantastic training, which I would not otherwise have had. I have met some fantastic people who work for the Probation Service who have helped me with my own research, but the best thing of all is the networking, finding out about other services and meeting people who can help you further your career too. Volunteering has opened up a world of opportunities for me!”.

"I attended a session on constructing a CV. It was one of the most useful events I have attended and I still use the information I gained from it today and have also helped others alter their CVs with the information I learnt. I still have the booklet four years on....and it still gets used!"

"I would encourage any student to get involved with the Careers Service. Ask about volunteering, sign up for CV sessions and events and start making plans that will enhance your skills now rather than when you’re in your final year and busy with writing your dissertation and taking exams. Start thinking about what will make you stand out from the crowd."
