PSI is Recruiting: Become an
is now launching its annual recruitment for new investigators. Each year
PSI runs an intense recruitment period to ensure that they recruit those
people showing the best potential to become a PSI investigator. The
process consists of a compulsory induction night after which candidates
are invited to complete an application form. Successful candidates are
invited to an interview with the PSI founders. For those making it
through interview, a thorough training course is then delivered.
After this, successful applicants are invited to attend peer-assessed
fieldwork and providing no problems are identified, the applicants are
then invited to join the team!
Brand New Investigators - Brand New
If you are interested in joining the team, the time to do so has never
been better! After years of thorough analysis of our investigation
methodology the team have identified ways of enhancing and altering the
way things are done to further our research aims. The new investigators
will be trained - alongside current team members - in the method which
we will be adopting. The new method has been facilitated by successful
PSI fundraising which has allowed us to purchase different equipment
which will seriously alter how we go about researching and documenting
phenomena. Comprehensive training will equip all investigators - old and
new alike - with the skills and knowledge to thoroughly embrace our new
way of doing things and, together, enhance the field of psychical
research. There’s never been a brighter time to join the team.
Louise Gasson was one of last year’s successful candidates. This is
what she had to say about her experience:
"The approach to training was friendly & easily accessible. Everyone at
PSI reflects the ethos of the organisation by being professional yet
approachable, serious about their commitment, yet good humoured & down
to earth. It’s not a roller-coaster ride of bumps, moans & full blown
manifestations! The reality of this type of work is that the world of
the paranormal is not nearly so accommodating but if you have a genuine
interest in this field, then being given the opportunity to have
investigate some of the locations we have visited makes it all truly
worthwhile. My thanks to Nicky, Dave and everyone at PSI."
