About Us

Helping Shape Careers Since 2011

This project, set up by long serving police officers and police staff, has now helped hundreds of former police officers and staff to secure new roles beyond policing. Whether they left after thirty years or five years.

Knowing our audience, we have built the project by word of mouth recommendation rather than advertising our services. Happily, after many years of hard work and delivering results – the word of mouth is that we really do know what we are talking about and that we have continually helped clients to secure the results they want.

With decades of experience, in both policing and crucially the private sector, we help to make your transition into the private sector as smooth and successful as possible. We will never break confidentiality, whether that be verbally, in writing or by selling on your details. We honour the confidences shared with us.

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.
