PCSO to PCA: My journey

by Jameet Singh, junior consultant

I joined Avon and Somerset Constabulary on an apprenticeship programme within the Criminal Justice Department immediately after finishing my GCSEs. That was the start of my thirteen-year career, taking me on a diverse career path from police community support officer to Major Crime Investigation Team helping investigate homicides.

During my career in the police force I had many secondments. I enjoyed being an executive assistant for the assistant chief constable in Gloucestershire Police, and helping set up the Outreach Team with the aim of making Avon and Somerset a more diverse organisation.

Benefits: It’s not all about the money. But it can be.

by Nora Harris, senior consultant

Projects are all about delivering benefits. If what you’re doing isn’t going to improve your organisation, what’s the point of the project in the first place? However, the benefits driving a project are all too often lost in translation. In my experience, this is generally because people don’t go far enough in interrogating their requirements and capturing the tangible improvements they seek.

Director’s Dialogue

Ben Ames – summer 2020

It’s fair to say that summer 2020 has not turned out as any of us expected when we were making plans at the start of the year. Instead, we have experienced cancelled holidays and distanced visits with loved ones, all while adapting to remote working and an ever-changing business landscape. We have truly been tested on both a professional and personal level these past few months.

Picture This: How I became a PCA graduate

By Sarah-Jane Firth, Junior Consultant

Having picked up my first camera when I was around 10 years old, it was no shock to my family and friends that it would be something I inevitably pursued later in education and as a career.

After graduating from Leeds Arts University and earning a high 2:1 in my Photography degree, I was determined to put all of my hard work to good use, going straight from university and diving into being a photographer on cruise ships with P&O.

From Pipettes to Project Management

My First Year as a Graduate Consultant

by Natalie Talbot, PhD Graduate Consultant

In 2016, just one year into my four-year PhD programme, I had the inconvenient realisation that I didn’t want to do science as a career in any shape or form, but the prospect of finding an alternative seemed impossible. So, I took the classic ‘bury those problems and think about them later’ approach and persevered.

Rest, assured

Author Amit Kalantri tells us that “nothing consoles and comforts like certainty does.” This applies to business as much as it does in our personal lives. Knowing gives you the confidence to push forward. Not knowing means you can spend forever second-guessing your actions, relying on hope and instinct more than facts and data.

What does this have to do with us? The answer: Assurance.
