One thing I will say about 'promotion', is that I used several examples from my time as acting s/sgt in my regs final interview, and all seemed to go down well. It's at least useful for something!

I felt it went the opposite way for me, it seemed like the impression I was giving was that I was too much of a manager rather than an operational officer. I think this is one of the reasons why I failed with 1 force in the interview.

I made sure that when I got another regs interview I made it clear that although I had managerial responsibilities I was still focussed on the operational side too and that's where I wanted to be.

Having said that there seemed to be a misconception that when I was a Special Superintendent I never left the office - this couldn't have been further from the truth so I had to make it blatantly obvious!
