Your next role

It’s time for the next step.
You’ve earned it.

Retired from being a detective, but still have a lot to offer?

Trading Standards Investigator
The Southwest

“Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in!” – Michael Corleone

Al Pacino might have been playing for the wrong team, but for most ex-forces the sentiment is the same.

However, like most ex-detectives, you might feel a bit too young to retire fully as you still have a lot to offer.

The good news is Trading Standards Departments across the country are in dire need of your investigation abilities to tackle doorstep crime, rogue traders, and fraud.

The Role

As a trading Standards Investigator working as part of an investigation and intelligence team, you will be tasked with the organisation and running of Fraud, Counterfeit Goods, Rogue Trading & Doorstep Crime investigations.

This will require you to conduct PACE interviews, secure evidence, and liaise with other council departments and police constabularies.
