Security Officer - Southend-on-Sea 


As a Security Officer at G4S, you are more than a Security Guard. You’ll ensure the safety of our customers' staff, their buildings, and assets, whilst providing excellent customer service with a smile. 


You will be the first point of contact for both staff and visitors for our client and will be responsible for ensuring that access control is to the highest standard and the protection of bank staff and premises is given the highest priority. We pride ourselves on delivering excellent customer service in a safe and secure environment.


It’s a varied role that includes; greeting staff and visitors and ensuring they adhere to the required security protocols, patrolling the premises, conducting both vehicle and personal luggage searches, controlling access and egress from the control room, and dealing with security incidents. 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.

The Ideal Candidate


You will need to be 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 will work a 4 on, 4 off shift pattern, with a rotation of day and night shifts. It would be a benefit to have some security experience and your SIA licence, however, it’s not essential, as we provide full SIA (Security Industry Authority) licence training. 


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. You’ll be in safe hands from our induction and on-site training to regular reviews and welfare checks with our managers.



  • 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


As this is a security role we’re required by law to ask a number of screening questions. You’ll only have to do this once to be eligible to apply for G4S and our wide range of security roles so we’ve made this as quick as possible.
