Private Investigator

Private investigators seek, obtain and supply information for clients, such as private clients, businesses or lawyers. It is not uncommon for private investigators to specialise in a particular area (for example, legal, corporate, financial and criminal investigations). The life of a private investigator can be stressful and dangerous, as they may face confrontation. Therefore, successful private investigators are quick thinkers, assertive and with good interviewing or interrogation skills. They are also flexible, as it is not uncommon to work irregular hours.

Private investigators often have a background in the field of law enforcement, insurance, or government investigation departments. Basically, people who have experience in investigating and analysing evidence.
