While it’s the job of our Area Security Officers to uphold a professional, alert and visible security presence at our clients’ premises, we also need you to be approachable with a strong customer focus, so we’re looking for confident people with excellent communication skills.


Ideally, you will have previous experience of working within a customer facing role and be in possession of, or willing to undertake the relevant training to obtain an SIA Security Guarding licence.


You must also be willing and able to travel to multiple sites of the client within the region.  Ideally, you will possess a full driving licence, as well as access to a reliable vehicle.

You will need to have a flexible approach to work and be able to work Monday to Friday between 0845 and 1715 with occasional evenings and weekends.

You may also be required to complete legible incident report writing if an incident should arise, so you’ll need to be fluent in both spoken and written English.  


The Ideal Candidate

  • Five year checkable work/education/unemployment history
  • Fluent in written and spoken English
  • Possess a full, clean UK Driving License 
  • Access to reliable, own transport
