Do you consider yourself to be a people person?  Does building rapport with others come naturally to you?  

 

Developing instant yet valuable relationships are vital to our daily working lives, however many of us don’t know how to best use these skills when it comes to our own career goals.

 

Does that sound like you?

 

If so, then have you considered a career as a security officer?   A career that offers you flexibility, variety, full training and a recognised qualification at no initial cost to you?  

 

Sounds good doesn’t it?

 

As a security officer for G4S, variety is guaranteed.  Your location and job activities will regularly change which means no two days are ever the same. You’ll ensure the safety of our customers and clients and no matter where you are based, we will train and support you every step of the way. 

 

We are looking for Area security officers to join us on a full-time basis!

 

This role will need you to be flexible to work 5 days out of 7, covering Monday to Sunday. You will also need to hold a full UK driving license and have your own vehicle.

 

Am I suited to being a Security Officer?

 

Previous experience in security is not a must, but if you're already working in the industry, or have before, we welcome you to join our team. We know you'll get off to a flying start!

 

We also welcome people who have worked previously in retail, travel, sales, recruitment or hospitality - jobs that rely on delivering great service. If you've done this type of work before, then you may have skills that would suit and as we provide full training, we'll help you pivot your skills into a new career.

 

A typical week will involve visiting a range of sites within your area; ensuring the safety of our customers' staff, their buildings and assets, whilst providing excellent customer service with a smile.  Other elements of the role will include:

 

  • Building relationships with employers and community organisations
  • Working as part of a team and on your own depending on site requirements
  • Based in government buildings, you’ll be working within clear guidelines, dealing with employees & members of the public who need to attend the building
  • An opportunity to work across a number of sites where you will gain increased knowledge, growing your own value as a guard

 

If you are aged 18 or over and are a confident communicator who is a team player with the drive to provide a friendly and professional service all times, then this could be the career for you!

 

Benefits

 

  • 5.6 weeks holiday per year, 8 of these will be in lieu of bank holidays (worked or not worked)
  • Workplace Pension Scheme
  • Great 4 Savings Employee Discount Scheme
  • Progression, training and development opportunities
  • We offer increased work opportunity seasonally - in the Spring and Summer we have increased events and opportunities to work at seasonal sites
  • Contracted hours mean we will pay you even if we cannot schedule you for work
  • All of your mileage for this position will be paid back too!
