Welcome to the June / July 2017 issue of Moving On – which is all about working in the public sector.
In this issue we are taking a look at some public service roles that you might not know about. These include local government jobs in town planning, trading standards and health and safety. We also take a look at some job roles that you will have heard about, such as police officer, nurse, social worker and teacher.
All public service job roles have something in common; they all offer the opportunity to work doing something that helps other people by providing them with the things that they need. We’ve also got a UCAS update for you and great feature on degree apprenticeships to keep you up to date with changes to ways of getting into employment.
I’d like to thank everyone who contributed to the making of this issue, especially my guest editor, Hetty.
“I am currently finishing my English BA at Somerville College and hope to do some teaching when I graduate. I don’t know what my long term career goals are but Moving On has definitely kept my eyes open to the variety of opportunities available. The magazine was provided in my sixth form centre, and having it around when I was studying for my A-levels helped me think about the bigger picture.
“It is a great resource, as it makes careers seem less confusing and the world of work seem less daunting. I have really enjoyed editing and writing for Moving On magazine – the experience has allowed me
to research topics I wouldn’t have otherwise have come across and practise writing in a straightforward, informative manner.
“I hope it helps other young people as much as it has helped me!”
