Is retirement just around the corner? Are you wondering what your options are?
For officers who have started to think about the day they retire from the police service, West Midlands Police Federation is hosting a number of seminars for people in their last three years of service.
The sessions will cover a number of topics and can be attended by an officer’s husband, wife or partner.
The sessions are held at the West Midlands Police Federation office at Guardians House in Sheldon. Topics covered include:
• Managing change and uncertainty
• CV writing and interview techniques
• Transferable skills
• Police and state pensions
• Managing money and financial changes
• Starting your own business
• Investments and finances
Tom Cuddeford, interim chairman of West Midlands Police Federation, said: “There is so much for officers to consider when they are approaching retirement. Our seminars ensure they can find out all the facts, ask questions of our experts and ensure that they are well informed as they make decisions affecting them as they leave the force.”
The next session is being held on 2 March between 8.30am and 4pm.
Further sessions will take place on 27 April, 15 June, 27 July and 7 September.
