As a SIA Licenced Security Officer, you’re ready for anything. And that means you can do this! Your experience in events, bar, business or any type of security role is needed right now. It’s needed to help to protect and facilitate the COVID-19 Mobile Testing Units across the Manchester area during these difficult and uncertain times.

The current situation surrounding Coronavirus is distressing for many but you can play a part in providing the safety and security for people to continue doing work they need to do, to help our country through it. These mobile testing facilities will cover all of Merseyside and are pivotal in the fight against the spread of the virus so your role will be to facilitate visitors on site, ensuring social distancing measures are followed and protecting staff and members of the public.

It’s important work, you’ll be able to provide a consistent service, with day-to-day responsibilities such as:

  • Presenting at all times a smart, alert, visible and commanding security presence

  • Checking passes and controlling access to premises

  • Supporting key workers, ensuring they have a safe working environment

We have immediate requirements so we will be conducting video-based selection over the coming weeks. If you have security experience and hold both a SIA and a driving licence then you can do this. Due to this being a 7-days a week operation we are looking for candidates who are able to work 8-10 hours a day on a 4 on / 4 off, including weekends and Bank Holidays.
