Supporting Your Next Career Move
…is what we do. We started PiPs in 2011 knowing that former police officers and staff had so much to offer the private sector but were not always great at getting that across.
We have a strong reputation of supporting police officers to make the very best moves into new jobs.
We Support with the services below to help
the transition into new jobs for retired police officers
CV and LinkedIn Service
Talking about yourself in glowing but realistic terms can prove a challenge. Particularly if you have spent decades as a former police officer where a compelling and engaging CV was not a usual requirement – and a CV is very different from any policing application you may have written.
Writing a CV can be an absolute nightmare for most people – we are here to lift that pressure from you.
Since most of us do not have to be interviewed regularly we can all feel a little anxious at this point – and no, you are not just supposed to ‘know’ how to do all this it is right and normal to feel a little out of your depth.
Added to this is is true to say that an interview in the private sector will be very different to those you attended in your policing career.... Let us put you on track
When you are not sure what to do next we can help. We work with people to help them onto a right track so they can move forward and move towards a rewarding and satisfying working life.
We understand that policing and often just life can prove to be quite a challenge. As extensively experienced and long qualified counsellors we work with people in a safe, confidential and supportive manner; helping to get people to a balanced and happier place.
What People Are Saying
“I would add that having Angela review and update my CV has been tremendous – always good to have a fresh pair of eyes going over the material that you collate over the years and I’m really pleased with the results. I was also reminded of so many things I had missed out – much more marketable now! …. Very professional, thanks PiPs!”
“I used Angela for help with my CV and linked in profile. I immediately noticed that I started to receive more responses from job applications, even if they were negative I was getting responses whereas before hand I would hear nothing. Having a well written CV and LinkedIn profile gave my more confidence which shone through in interviews. I have managed to get my latest position due that new found confidence.”
“Angela tells it as it is when advising – just the sort of help one needs.”
“I am proof of Angela’s skills having successfully moved on at a time of my choosing.”
Angela is an inspiration. All you have to do is listen and follow her guidance… brilliant! I can highly recommend Angela. She knows her stuff. I’ve never not had at least an interview
I need to clarify things here as well in that when I say we both worked on it, that is a euphuism for me providing Angela with a great deal of information and with her doing all the work! I will be quite honest in that my previous CVs contained too much information and whilst I was never really happy with my own work, it is only when you use a service such as offered by Angela and PiPS that you are able to see the ‘wheat from the chaff’.
I am sure many of us get emails offering CV writing services, at varying costs, but PiPS is able to recognise those skills, that we all acquired over many years and translate them into what employers are wanting (hopefully!). Added to this, the cost is about half of what many companies are asking.
The important aspect and thrust of the group, is Police into Private Sector and therefore specific skills and knowledge are required and need to be reflected in your CV. What I would finally say is, if you have doubts about your own version or need help, go to Angela and I know she can help and at a very reasonable cost. Good luck! ”
