Police Expert Witness – Is this You?

Do you want to work with people in a company that has an outstanding national reputation for balanced and ethical professionalism that will give you an intellectual and professional challenge?

Do you want the flexibility on not just where you work but when you work for the majority of your time, with the potential to earn between £24,000 and £60,000 on a sliding scale from part time to full time work.

Do you want to work with an organisation that understands the skillset and work ethos that you gained from your career with the police?

Is this what you are looking for?

If you do, and you are a person of integrity who believes that people should be treated fairly, there is a fantastic opportunity to become an associate with a leading expert witness employment company that deals with military, police and civilian personal injury claims. We do not deal with liability or who is ‘to blame’, but contribute to the legal process that ensures that individuals receive just and appropriate compensation for the loss of employment opportunity because of injuries that they have received, in many cases during service.

We are looking for an associate who is a former Police Officer or Member of Police Staff. Only candidates who possess the attributes that we need, and ‘fit’ our ethos, will qualify for potential selection.

We need a thoughtful, intuitive and determined individual to produce employment reports, who can process a lot of diverse information and identify the key facts and evidence. We need someone who does not accept things at face value, but will question, probe and research to produce timely, thorough, balanced, well presented and convincingly argued evidence to assist and enable the legal process to make the right decisions.

  • A flexible working pattern with the opportunity to expand to what you want as your skills, experience and capacity grow.
  • IT based knowledge and peer support that primarily allows work to be carried out wherever you want.
