    Well annie you certainly haven't upset me with your post and as I have said before on here I embrace freedom of speech... actually my post wasn't directed at anyone in particular, quite frankly they normally aren't but I do question why it is on here that immediately somebody makes a mistake or perhaps may be a misguided individual the call or secream to 'Name and Shame' appears.

    As far as I am concerned it is a private issue between the job provider and those who have applied. If any of you on here have had any experience at running a business then you will know that just sometimes there remains in business grey areas and one those grey areas is in fact receiving misguided CV's.

    But you know? a well oiled and experienced HR system knows exactly how to sift, prioritise and deal with the chaff. It's not a major issue and in the old days prior to email it started with the colour of the envelope and the address, hand written or typed. Large companies employ the use of electronic key word detection and as a small firm we visually do the same and it takes minutes... no big deal..! CD

    PS But just sometimes we exercise some tolerance...

    I totally agree with what has been said here so far. I would just like to add that, if you send your CV to someone offering work, and you dont fit the criteria laid down in the post, you make yourself look a numpty for sending in a underqualified CV in the first place. Your name will soon stick in peoples minds FOR THE WRONG REASONS.

    There are more and more security firms offering close protection courses now.I feel one of the problems Is,Instructors on thease courses Inflate the truth about work available when the course starts.I know when I finshed my CP course I was applying worldwide for positions with little luck.Most CPO,s know as I do, databases run In funny numbers,up to 6000 on file on some.CP work for me Is my career and I love the Job,however,you do need contacts and a little ladyluck on your side.

    To be blunt with no prior military (or police) experience you wont get CP/PSD contract in Iraq and probably not Afganistan if thats were youre intending to go...

    The best route for you with no experiance and no military background would be to use your money on other courses the chance of you getting a job in a HE are zero. However there is alweays a chance of work in europe etc so instead of the HEAT course try a first aid or driving course.
