Have you thought about using your work and life skills to really make a difference in your neighbourhood?
After being made redundant, mum of two Ruxane decided she needed a new challenge and now she’s loving every minute out on the beat as a PCSO.
“I had been within the telecoms industry for around 20 years. After being made redundant I decided that I needed a change and the world was my oyster,” she said.
“My sister forwarded me a post on Facebook about becoming a PCSO. It was something I had never thought about before but it sounded interesting, so I applied.”
Nearly two years on, Ruxane hasn’t looked back and says she has learnt a lot on the job and grown as a person.
“Every day is very different and varied. I enjoy the challenge and that no two days are ever the same.
“If you’re a people person, like the outdoors in all weathers and enjoy dealing with a variety of issues, which can sometimes take you out of your comfort zone, then becoming a PCSO is for you.
“I can honestly say that I love my job and look forward to a new experience every day.”
