28 Aug Female Investigators
Female investigators are our speciality. Well over half of our field agents are women and the main reason women make great private eyes is that the subject of an investigation is much less likely to be suspicious of a female – it is as simple as that. We have female investigators aged from 23 right up to 58, and everywhere in between. They are of different socio-economic backgrounds, different cultures, some are mums, some are analytical and some are sneaky – all these qualities make a good investigator no matter what gender they are.
Women investigators go through exactly the same training standards as men and have had similar life experiences so there is no reason at all why a woman can’t compete in this industry. We have been in business for over twenty years and have always relied on women to get the bulk of the work done – we would not be where we are today without their abilities and attitudes.
Our experience has shown us that people, in general, are a lot less suspicious of a woman than a man. This helps nearly all investigations because the target of the assignment is a lot less suspicious, and this, in turn, makes subterfuge inquiries and surveillance so much easier and effective, with better results achieved for a client.

Of course, there are some exceptions where female investigators would not be suitable. Let’s picture a bucks night full of men, roaming from pub to club. The same female constantly seen in those circumstances would surely stick out. The same result would occur if we followed a man into a brothel – surely the female detective would attract a bit more attention than a male when getting to the reception. But on the other side, there are examples of where a woman can get the results that a man can’t. Recently we were retained to identify breaches of intellectual property laws in the cosmetics industry and female investigators were required to covertly ask questions and make purchases – so simple! Another time we had to go undercover and befriend a woman in a wedding party – a male detective couldn’t have done that, but our female investigators had no trouble at.
Each assignment we take on is carefully analysed by management, and a suitable investigator is chosen to suit the individually tailored needs of your particular job. Give us a call at any time on 1300LIPSTICK for a confidential chat, or email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
