Job opps for ex PCSO advice please.

Post by bon »

At age 60, just decided to leave my role as a PCSO, and tendered my resignation, any suggestions on possible alternative employment would be appreciated.
I realise the career opportunities will be fewer based on age factor, just wondering if our job with all its variants and skills is regarded as having some merit for would be potential employers.

I would consider looking for a security manager role, there's a few transferable skills there. But the trust factor alone from doing this job should assist for certain jobs and potentially help during paper sifts and interviews. How about working for an estate agent? Going into people's properties, the employer is going to want someone they can trust.
