Careers

Lyonswood Investigations is always looking for competent people in all areas of the investigation industry. If you already a licensed investigator with experience or if you have a skill or ability you think our clients might have be interested in, please forward us your details and a CV by email and we will discuss the possibility of utilising your services in the future.

For those who are licenced but not yet experienced, we are also interested in hearing from you. In NSW, you will need to have a master licence before you can perform any form of work with us so please make contact when you have met this requirement.

For those who are not licensed and not experienced, have you ever considered becoming a private investigator? Perhaps you didn’t even know that such a job really existed. Private investigators do exist in Australia but the reality of life as a private eye is a bit different from Hollywood’s portrayal. There is still the excitement and intrigue you would expect but there’s also a strong regulatory, commercial and legal framework within which investigators must operate.

There will always be a need for private investigators although the level of demand fluctuates with changes in legislation, society and in technology. Is the role of investigator one that you could take on? Are you reliable, attentive, imaginative and a good communicator? Would you have the ability to understand instructions, understand clients’ requirements and desired outcomes, identify key elements and formulate and execute a cogent plan? Can you think outside the square and come up with a unique approach to a problem? If so, you might make a competent investigator. Whether as a part-time endeavour or a job for life, conducting investigations teaches you a useful set of skills, many of which can have broader application.

We suggest as a first step purchasing and reading Lyonswood’s Guide to Becoming an Investigator, a short ebook which outlines what you need to consider when entering the investigations industry. Once you have read the guide and complied with the steps you will be ready to make contact with us and explore the possibility of becoming an investigator.
