The Detective Project

The Detective Project is an events company providing crime scene investigation workshops for adults and children.   It was founded in 2010 by Jenny Williams, an ex police detective.

There are three core markets;

  • Children’s parties and holiday workshops for age 7+
  • School workshops for primary and secondary ages through to university
  • Adults team building events and parties

Franchisees offer and run all these events in their own exclusive territory and are free to build their income by employing suitably qualified sub contractors.

Our award winning team have a reputation for running high quality professional workshops which are really fun and enjoyable for all involved – take a look at the testimonials on the website.

Demand is high for our events so we’d like some more team members.
