After graduating from the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art, where she trained from 1990 to 1993, Hobley had a number of roles in a variety of television dramas, including Coronation Street as Samantha Failsworth, Harbour Lights as WPC Melanie Rush and The Bill as Sue Booker.

In 2016, Hobley took part in the third series of The Jump on Channel 4. The series began on 31 January 2016. On 4 February 2016 Hobley was forced to withdraw from the show after dislocating her elbow in training for the ski jump, she revealed that she has been invited back to participate in the 2017 series.
On 3 October 2013, Smooth Radio announced that Hobley would become a presenter on the network, fronting a programme on Sunday mornings.
From January to July 2015 Hobley co-starred with Jamie Lomas, Rik Makarem, Michael McKell and Gray O’Brien in a touring production of Peter James’s “Dead Simple”.

In February 2016 she withdrew from competing in the reality show The Jump after dislocating her shoulder, breaking her arm and rupturing her ACL.
