Joining Principle One was a big change for me; I had just completed 4 years in the Metropolitan Police Service after taking part in the Police Now Graduate Leadership programme. As a police officer I gained a wide range of experience, working in neighbourhood policing, championing local innovation projects, tackling deep rooted community issues and investigating serious and complex crimes.
Being a police officer was both incredibly challenging and rewarding, and gave me invaluable experience in stakeholder management in difficult situations. I wanted to build on my front-line experience, and becoming a business consultant has given me the opportunity to work with Principle One’s technical teams to develop solutions to the investigative problems faced by policing. I really value the working environment at Principle One; the open culture and flat structure means I work collaboratively with colleagues with all levels of experience and if I bring a good idea to the table, we can act on it – fast!
