Previous experience in security is a must for this role due to the nature of the sites you’ll be working on.  If you hold your SIA licence and have experience working in the security sector, come and join our team.  We know you'll get off to a flying start!

A typical week will involve ensuring the safety of our customers' staff, their buildings and assets, and providing excellent customer service with a smile.  Other elements of the role will include:

Due to the nature of this role, we are looking for candidates who already hold their SIA licence and have experience in the security sector. 

Our contractual requirements mean that there are opportunities for a range of shift patterns and therefore you will need to be available to work Monday to Friday, including bank holidays. You will need to be able to commute reliably to central Glasgow.
