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 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 Daventry security officers to join us on a full-time basis.
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 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:
- Greeting staff and visitors, in a friendly professional manner
- Ensuring everyone adheres to the required safety protocols of the site.
- Conduct searches as required
- Patrolling the premises
- Dealing with security incidents
- The option to study for an industry recognised qualification in Security Management. This will include studying while at work and a higher rate of pay once the course is completed
Join G4S and you can 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. You’ll be in safe hands from our induction and on-site training to regular reviews and welfare checks with our managers.
The Ideal Candidate
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!
A good understanding of IT is required and as mentioned before, whilst it would be a benefit to have some previous security experience together with your SIA licence, it’s not essential.
We provide full SIA (Security Industry Authority) licence training to help you on your way to a career in security.
Our contractual requirements mean that you will be working days, nights and weekends and will therefore need to be available to work Monday to Sunday, including bank holidays. You will also need to hold a full UK driving license plus have access to your own vehicle.
- 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
