Name: Jill Ball
Role: Progression and Employability Officer
I have worked in the College as a Progression and Employability Officer for ten years during which time I have helped many students transition within and on from College successfully. Enquiries from students are very diverse ranging from help with job seeking, deciding on what career to follow, how to prepare for interview and how to apply to University. I run the College Medsoc which helps students to make application to medical school and also help those applying for dentistry and vet science through a series of planned activities.
