As a Security Officer at G4S, you are more than a Security Guard. You are a key part of our team providing the first class service we pride ourselves on delivery for customers across the UK. We're working hard to ensure our customers across the UK can return to the new normal following the pandemic so we have opportunities right across the UK working in a variety of sectors from government to distribution, manufacturing to corporate, and everything in between!

You don't need to already have experience in security because we provide all the training and licensing you need - you just need to have the right skills and approach, we can teach you the rest! Security is an essential service that has been key during lockdown and now as we return to normality it is needed more than ever - in security you really can secure a long-term career.

From single-site static roles, to area and relief positions, we are sure to have an opportunity to fit what you're looking for - whether that's Monday to Friday, casual, full time or part time hours, days, nights or weekends.

With a keen eye and a brilliant way with people, you could look forward to an interesting role where no two days are the same with exciting career opportunities.

You will need to be aged 18 or over, a confident communicator who is a team player with the drive to provide a friendly and professional service at all times. A good IT knowledge is also key. You must be flexible and available to work on a varied shift pattern which will include days, nights and weekends. It would be a benefit to have from some security experience and your SIA licence, however it’s not essential, as we provide full SIA (Security Industry Authority) licence training.

If you're looking for a mobile position, you will also need to have a full clean driving licence and your own transport.

Join G4S and you can also enjoy real career progression with a large international company - as the world’s leading provider of security solutions, we offer loads of training and support.
