If you have an inquisitive mind and a related qualification then a fraud investigator role could be your perfect fit. Fraud investigators liaise with victims, the police and companies to look into fraudulent activities and claims.
You'll find that positions are spread between the private and public sector. The job is varied and can offer great benefits to the right candidate. Recruiters will be looking for a minimum of A level qualifications but a strong preference is given to those who hold a degree in a related subject. Applicants should also demonstrate an interest in legislation and an awareness of current laws.
There are fraud investigator positions available across the UK, however, you'll find a greater number and higher wages in London and the South East. Wages are fairly average for an office based role but the right candidate will find this line of work far more interesting and enjoyable than other office jobs. The role of fraud investigator is an excellent choice if you like real time results for your hard work as cases are closed.
Experienced investigators will find a choice of temporary and permanent work available, but entry level positions tend to be permanent at least until you've learned the ropes.
