Moving on ....

Any other 'PCSO issues' that do not fit in to the other forums. Recruitment of PCSOs, day to day PCSO duties, questions about law, joining the regular police, becoming a special, anything else remotely PCSO orientated!!

Moving on ....

Post by Edstarphenom » Sun Aug 18, 2013 1:09 am

Just wanting a few ideas for life after this job. I want out to be honest and wondered if anyone had any jobs PCSO's can do or apply for.

(And before anyone says Police Officer, I would rather cut off my own arm!)

Thanks

Funny you posted this I'm fed up too. I'm looking a truck driving. I really don't know what's skills carry over except responsibility and people skills. Possibly close protection but training is insanely expensive and not much work or mi5 or mi6?
Any skills outside of this? Re-train possibly?

Housing ASB officers? Lots of ex job go to do this or something similar with local authority's.

General SIA work?? Not riveting though.

Andrew B is spot on. ExPCSO Housing Officers are the BEST! :slbx:

It's finally broken me. I NEED to get out.

I was waiting to join as an Officer (with eveything passed) after applying in 2008. Then the cuts came, application kept live and waited and waited before finally last year had it cancelled altogether. Then failed paper sift twice since.

The job can now kiss my backside!

You sound like me a couple of years ago. Whatever you do, don't jump without another job secured!

If you still want something similar and "out and about" why not try something like Airport Security?

I know that Heathrow were taking on new applications last month and the starting salary is roughly £22k.

Yes Bert, but who's to say the plug won't be pulled tomorrow?

I'm off. See you around.
