Football will come home, conferences will make a comeback and music will take centre stage again. And when they do, we’ll be more than ready for them - with a new approach to event security, stewarding and crowd control, designed for a very different world.
2020 saw a year of major and small events being cancelled or denied crowds due to the spread of coronavirus. At G4S we continue to support events no matter how big or small, with or without crowds, as well as continuing to support testing centres across the UK.
We are looking to recruit experienced SIA Security Officers to join our team to support those events that are continuing in a safe, secure way in line with government guidelines but also in readiness for when the UK returns to normal and the events industry kicks off again! We have work across the sports and music industries, spanning the whole of the UK - so you will have the opportunity to be a part of the events you love.
Edinburgh is a key location for G4S Events - here you could be working at a top football or rugby club, or supporting the broader music and corporate events in the region.
Our Security Officers provide a visible reminder that safety is our number one priority for visitors and staff. Which means you could be inside or outside, on your feet showing people where to go, checking tickets at entry, monitoring the crowd and managing the car parking facilities. Wherever you are, you’ll be the fun, helpful and friendly face representing G4S.
As a Security Officer you will be responsible for securing the venues, staff and visitors for our customers. This may include:
- Carrying out pre and post event safety checks ensuring compliance with safe working procedures
- Searching visitors on entry to venues
- Ensuring that no prohibited or restricted items are taken into the secured zones within the venues
- Monitoring visitor / crowd movements and behaviour to identify potential issues or incidents and to take action as necessary
- Dealing with visitor / crowd disruptions
- Securing licenced / hospitality areas
You will be employed on a casual basis meaning you can work as many events as you like - we’re able to offer full-time or part-time hours, days, evenings, weekends and weekdays.
If you have security experience and hold your SIA licence then you can do this! You will just need to complete the following application form and one of our Recruiters will be in touch to discuss the next steps. Our recruitment and selection process is currently being conducted remotely, this will include a video interview and screening to BS7858 standards.
Given the nature of the industry, we do need to ask some questions for security and compliance purposes, but don’t worry - you will only need to complete them once.
