I'm Andy Labrum

My aim is to inspire, educate and support fellow officers and staff who are considering leaving their policing careers, whatever their service, by providing them with the guidance, education and motivation they need to start a new chapter in their lives.

After serving 30 years in the force, having done nothing else since the age of 18, I was so apprehensive about my post-policing future and losing my identity, and had no idea what kind of career I could pursue with my very unique experience and skillset, how I was going to support my family and felt overwhelmed with mixed emotions.

I want to reassure you that there is certainly life after the job. With proper guidance, an understanding of your skills, experience and interests, and a strong mindset, you can find a fulfilling career that you love and achieve the work-life balance you need.

What some of my clients say...



"I've watched Andy Labrum help so many police officers transition out of the police and in to new work...But it's not just about finding a new job - he helps them find new confidence, new skills and a new mindset, meaning that they have the skills for living life to the full once moving on from the police. He works from his heart, as well as his incredible skill set, which is what sets him apart from the other career coaches out there 👮‍♂️💙"


"In October last year, I was made redundant from a role that I had been in for eight years.  I contacted Andy and he offered really constructive guidance with regards to my CV, applications and covering letters. I was invited to attend Zoom interviews for 2 positions. Andy took the time to coach me with regards to interview preparation, the importance of evidencing my skills and abilities and the all-important relaxation techniques. As a result I found myself in the enviable position of being offered both jobs! Something I never would have thought possible. I can only offer my heartfelt thanks to Andy for his amazing support, guidance and positive encouragement. Hand on heart I know that without his help I would not be in the happy situation I am now."


"When I first enquired with Andy I was completely lost on my career trajectory. After 5 years in policing, I knew I wanted to do something else, but my confidence was rock bottom and I didn’t think I would be employable anywhere else. I was having a difficult time in my personal life and work was adding to the stress. After our first call, I immediately felt more optimistic and clearer about my future. Andy helped craft my policing experience into transferrable skills for the private sector, discussed interview techniques and even gave me advice for negotiating salary on my first job offer – which was successful! After months of reading others’ success stories on the Blue Light Leavers Facebook page, I was finally able to post my own! I’m now in a new role in consulting that I never could’ve imagined this time last year. Andy was fundamental in me securing a job outside of policing and I haven’t look back since. "


"I reached out to Andy during what I can only describe as an extremely difficult year for me personally. I was only hoping for 5 minutes of his time for some pointers, but Andy did so much more than that. His support, coaching and friendship made so much difference that I don't think I could ever repay it. After a lot of hard work...and patience from Andy, I landed a job in a role I'd been after for a long time. I really couldn't have done it without him."
