Hi,
I have recently started a low paid job, however now after a long time of applications and waiting I have been offered a two positions one for border force as an officer and the other is as a police officer!
I am just wondering if anyone has any views or experience about either of these positions?
I hope to one day become an investigator within the NCA, which one if either would provide relevant experience?
Thank you!!

It depends on which topic interests you most. The NCA deal with all sorts of different types of crime from Organised crime, Fraud, Drug trafficking, Slavery up to Border vulnerabilities. If you want to work with Organised crime you could apply to either a specialised drug squad with your force or work for drugs detection with the border force. If I was you I'd do some research into which topics interest you most.

That really depend on what you'll be doing in BF?

You'll undoubtedly end up doing investigation at some point in the police, however you may only receive minimal training for that and no official qualification unless you're actually a detective. If BF have an official investigator role and you're in it, you'll be experienced and qualified, but if you're not in an investigator role you may not even get any experience?
