"I studied Criminology at university, and always knew I wanted to get into a position where I could help the local community. So I applied for a job with the National Probation Service, and haven’t looked back since. My day-to-day role generally consists of meeting with offenders to assess their situation and current level of risk upon release, which mainly sees me working in my local prison - although I do get out to court hearings and visit recently discharged prisoners from time to time. It can be pretty stressful, and some cases are more challenging than others. But if I’ve helped even one offender and motivated them to stay on the straight and narrow, then it’s all been worth it."
