Law Enforcement and Security

How to develop your experience

The law enforcement and security sector is highly diverse and being able to demonstrate that you have relevant work experience will be a great advantage. Building up your experience of working with people from different backgrounds will be valuable, as will being able to demonstrate leadership skills.

You can begin building your skills and experience at university by volunteering, doing an internship, having a part-time job or by doing a professional placement.
