Ep.74 Your Transferable Skills with Recruitment Consultant Lewis Willcox of Investigo
Welcome to Episode 74 of the Blue Light Leavers Podcast
So today I'm talking with Lewis Willcox.
Lewis is a consultant with a really highly sought after, well known recruitment company called Investigo and deals predominantly with change and transformation programmes in policing, public sector and government organisations.
He's really highly respected and a really good guy. I've known him for a number of years now and I've had a relationship with Investigo for a few years because of the type of work that I've been doing.
Now, in this interview, we discuss a recruiter's perspective and we talk about the type of organisations and types of roles he recruits for.
We also talk about Change Management and Transformation programmes, and the opportunities and skill sets that he's looking for, and we talk about the challenges some of these organisations have in finding the right staff and how you, with your experience and your background, regardless of your level of service or rank, could be a really good fit.
It's a brilliant interview and I'm really grateful to him for his time.
