PSI is Recruiting: Become an Investigator
PSI Training PhotoPSI 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 Method!
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."
