Move over, Coromoran Strike, because Horsham’s Harry Watts has arrived.
An Undergraduate at the University of Portsmouth, Harry Watts has opted to spend his Graduate Placement year working as a Private Detective for Answers Investigation
Of his unique placement, Harry, 22, said: “Investigation, to me, has always been finding out the root causes to problems that people face every day. Here at Answers I can do just that. No, it’s not the fancy scenes you’ve seen in the latest Bond movie, but that’s not what our work here is about; It’s tackling real issues, with real people at its core
“On the first day, I was nervous, but I quickly felt at ease when in the office. I helped with day to day office tasks in the morning, and after lunch Steve, who was very friendly, and I drove to Caterham to serve some papers. Although it didn’t take long, it gave me a good insight to their job
“Studying Criminology and Criminal Justice at the University of Portsmouth quickly taught me the world is not clear cut. Developing my curiosity and deductive skills led me to where I am today, but didn’t give me the genuine experience I needed. Learning on the job here, at Answers Investigation, has really propelled my knowledge and skills in the short time I’ve been here and has given me that extra authentic practise I craved. You can only learn so much from textbooks and webpages: The firsthand fieldwork is where the real education lies
“In my brief time here, I’ve been involved with observations, process serves and research - all of which have left me with a large appetite for more. I believe that, for most individuals, finding a job or work that you enjoy to its fullest degree is hard to come by. But for myself, I can safely say that I’m absorbed by the world and workings of being a Private Investigator. I look forward to hopefully spending more time here at Answers and the fantastic people that work here”
