Booklet Application Support
Content editing & guidance to help break through that first hurdle
Promotion processes for Sergeant and Inspector posts, as well as vacancies for lateral moves, often start with a 'paper sift'. This requires you to submit a written application booklet or expression of interest. This is your opportunity to convey your relevant skills and experience on paper.
Your first port of call is the digital 'Promotion Application Success’ and other guides I offer to support you in making a start. This is often sufficient to help you understand how you can structure/present your evidence and examples.
An Individual booklet review might be the kind of support you prefer if you are unsure about how you can maximise your potential, have a deadline looming for submitting your application (which is usually the case!) or you are experiencing some uncertainty.
Many officers struggle at this first hurdle, not for any lack of ability or potential to do the job but because aligning their skills and experience against the relevant leadership competencies - as written examples of evidence - can sometimes take time to develop. With (typically) tight deadlines and a limited word allowance adding extra pressures - getting it right is important, especially if this is your 'breakthrough' to interview as part of a competitive selection process.
