    Happy to have a look at your CV.

    Best to try networking in your TAC. Failing that, there are any number of job sites out there.

    G4S/Armour Group have just secured a rather lucrative contract protecting UK Govt Officials in Afghan/Iraq.

    Why not take the money you would have saved on tour, pay for the 3 week intensive SIA Close Protection Level 3 Course (aprox £3k) and contact them re a job as a CPO? Your fresh back from a tour so will be in a position to hit the ground running.

    Depending on your unit (and possibly location), that could be very good advice.
