Jobs for Criminologist (Edinburgh)

Hi all,

I was wondering if you could give me some advice.

I am a trained Criminologist born and raised in Italy, but currently living in Belgium. Due to my boyfriend being offered a job in Edinburgh we are relocating in September.

I have started job hunting approx a month ago, but so far I haven't received any positive responses. Unfortunately it looks like most jobs in my field are carried out by social workers in Scotland and subject to a SSSC registration for which I apparently don't qualify.

So, basically my question is: Does anyone work in a related field and could tell me if there are jobs available for criminologists? Maybe jobs I am not yet aware of or jobs that are not being directly advertised?

Or should I just try to apply to unrelated jobs and get a second qualification in Scotland?

A third thought, namely that employers are not keen on accepting candidates who are still living abroad, has crossed my mind too. Have you been able to land a job while still living overseas or did you move to Edinburgh before starting your job hunt?

Thank you very much in advance for any help and suggestions!

Best,

Julia
