Latest jobs with G4S

Since the launch of the Career Centre we have had a huge volume of noth internal and external canddiates applying for roles and we have had a number of people asking about internal movement between different business units and countries, I thought it would be good to share one of the stories with our readers:

Among those who have put the website to the test with outstanding results is Martha Manoli who, until February this year, was manned sales administrator with G4S Greece. Having worked in security for 17 years, 10 of them with G4S, she felt ready to explore how the international security market worked. A position with the Group in the UK might be the answer.

With that in mind, Martha kept an eye on the G4S intranet where vacancies were regularly advertised and made several unsuccessful applications. She started to wonder what she was doing wrong. But with the launch of the G4S Career Centre, she realised, from the advice and tips it offers, that she was not following the best procedures.

“I had a strong CV and knew the working circumstances in UK but my cover letter was a disaster because it did not present who I am and what I can do. I learned this from the website’s ‘10 things that will help you get hired’ and also ‘Your Personal Statement’. “I followed the instructions with reverence and made the appropriate corrections to my cover letter,”

Martha explains. “Three applications were enough to get me an interview and I was well prepared, having also read the advice offered by the website: “Five tips to help you in your next interview”. The interview went very well and after a few days Martha received a congratulatory e-mail. She is now planning her relocation, to become administration manager with G4S Integrated Services in the UK.

Anyone looking for help and advice on CV writing and interview best practise can get access to all our interview resources once they have registered with the career centre.

The G4S Plc Linkedin group for current employees and alumni has been incredibly successful since its launch last year, we are about to break the 1,000 member mark and we have had some amazing feedback and discussions.

I thought it would be good to share some comments from our most popular thread with the readers of our blog.

We asked our members to describe G4S in one word, though the “one word” rule was not strictly stuck to by everyone we did let it slide as we thought the content was great and really showed how people who work for G4S really see the company. I used a great tool called wordle to create the word cloud.

G4S plc, the world’s second largest multi-national private sector employer, with more than 625,000 employees worldwide secured two prestigious honours at this year’s Onrec Online Recruitment Industry awards. G4S secured the accolade for Best Candidate Service for its highly innovative on line career centre, which provides centralised access to all global vacancies within the group. In addition, G4S’s Group Head of Resourcing, Colin Minto, was recognised for his outstanding contribution to the online recruitment industry over the past 12 months as he scooped the Industry Personality of the Year Award.

Uniquely G4S was the only company to secure a double win at the Onrec awards, which were handed out at a glittering ceremony at the Grange City Hotel in London on 23rd March 2011. The Onrec awards are organised by Onrec, the Online Recruitment magazine for HR Directors, Personnel Managers, Job Boards and Recruiters with information on the internet recruitment industry.

The Candidate Service award was open to those online recruitment organisations that deliver ‘best practice’ services for job seekers, such as CV writing tips, advice on searching and applying for work and of course access to relevant job opportunities.

Colin Minto, Group Head of Resourcing at G4S, said: “The benefit of G4S’s on line career centre is to allow job seekers anywhere in the world to understand the real G4S, register and apply for jobs intuitively, be continually and intelligently matched to relevant job opportunities and become job ready quickly. In addition, they can join G4S forums and communities to discuss career and industry issues and link their social media profiles to their G4S job seeker profile.

The career centre also enables G4S to build engaged talent pools and continually and consistently promote its employer brand globally. With over 50,000 registered users and 80,000 unique visitors a month, our hiring managers have access to an active database of potential employees, reducing the need to advertise externally or use third party recruitment services.”

Colin also collected the award for Personality of the Year. Colin was recognised for his outstanding contribution to the development of the online recruitment industry through the creation and development of the innovative G4S career centre and his work advancing the cause of direct sourcing and in-house recruiting.

Irene Cowden, Group HR Director, commented: “Since joining G4S, Colin has helped us revolutionise our approach to online recruiting and launched the new careers platform. It is fantastic that he is being recognised by the industry for the work he has done. I firmly believe that what we have achieved at G4S is class leading and a game changer in terms of corporate resourcing strategy and the application of innovative technological recruiting solutions”.
