If you’re a Police Officer, Law Enforcement or other emergency services professional considering leaving, then this is for you! Every episode, I’ll bring you interviews with subject matter experts like CV writers, recruiters, business coaches, senior executives and more plus interviews with cops who have successfully transitioned to new roles. We’ll discuss why and how they did it, their fears, how they overcame them and lessons learned and what life is like outside of the Service. I’m your host Andy Labrum, welcome to The Blue Light Leavers Podcast. During this episode, Charlotte Eve tells us about her background in HR and why she created her own CV writing company more than 20 years ago. Charlotte has written many CV’s for Police Officers in all ranks across the globe, including members of the Blue Light Leavers private Facebook group and has an incredible work ethic, using her skills and experience to help the long term unemployed, those made redundant and those returning from parental leave with their CV and the interview process. Charlotte talks about the importance of a quality CV, the key points and structure, the difference between roles and achievements and what you should focus on, the ‘applicant tracking system’ that sifts your CV, how to evidence Police related skills and experience, LinkedIn and much much more. This is a fantastic interview that will answer so many of your questions relating to CV’s and applying for roles.
