First name: Jodi

Short introduction: I'm an ambitious second year psychology student looking for a summer placement that can relate to my course and help apply my knowledge. I have previously worked many customer facing roles and also spent 3 summers working at the Scott Centre, a part of Youth Options, looking after the children across a mixture of centre days and trips out. I am mostly interested in the mental health areas and also criminal areas including youth offending.
Education, skills knowledge and experience: In my educational background I have completed A Levels in Psychology, Sociology and Photography and I'm now in my second year of my psychology degree. Post-degree I am considering the option of completing a Masters in an area of psychology that takes my interest the most, and I am currently undecided on what that will be.
A lot of my skills that are applicable to my degree have come from my time as a Playworker. From this I completed courses on topics such as mental health, equality and diversity and safeguarding. I believe these could all be found useful in a psychology related setting.
My previous jobs include retail work at a jewelry store; bar work in several locations; a playworker for the Scott Centre and an Ice Marshall for the Winchester Cathedral Ice Rink for which I was first aid trained.
Status: Available to partner with
