Security Officer Service

Security Officer Service

Security Services UK is a security services company. We offer one of a kind, professional security officer services across the country to a wide range of clients that include public sector members, commercial organisations and private citizens of various profiles.

The screening process of candidates for security officers' positions at Security Services UK is quite tough but it helps us handpick the best candidates that can maintain the safety and security of our clients at all times during the assignment.

Some of the most important skills that we look for in security officers include flexibility and adaptability. The hours can be long and assignments can include evenings and weekends. Many assignments would require a security officer to respond to a potential security threat right away, for which they would need to be able to react fast and recognise any potential threats. It would also be very desirable for a candidate to have a driving license because many service packages offered by Security Services UK include drivers.

Flexibility and adaptability extend to assignments, as well as other functions of the job. Security Services UK is a type of company that takes advantage of security industry's innovations and expects its employees to do the same. Therefore, being adaptable to these innovations, especially those aimed towards serving our clients better, is expected in all our security service candidates. It also goes without saying that flexibility and adaptability are incredibly important for the assignments themselves. A lot of Security Service UK's clients have complex circumstances and their needs can easily change - for example, they might need event security as well as close protection service at the same time or during the same time. This is why we require our operatives to undergo various kinds of training in order to ensure our clients' safety and security in any situation.

Skills and experience gained during your previous employments are also very important. We at Security Services UK require our candidates to have some police or military experience and a good standard of general education. Background checks also include CRB, drug and financial checks. Security Services UK are very proud of our reputation as a leading, trustworthy provider of security services and we do not wish to jeopardise it in any way.

Security Services UK also expect our security officers to be approved by the SIA. Our organisation has been accredited by the body, and we expect all our operatives to be licensed as well. In order to obtain a license under the SIA, you must be over 18 years old, pass the mandatory CRB check and complete the training required by the SIA. There are many colleges that offer courses that are SIA-approved and that you can take prior to applying to work with Security Services UK. For more information on SIA-approved training, visit the SIA website or get in touch with Security Services UK and one of our consultants will be happy to answer any questions you might have. If you already have a SIA license please contact us to discuss your options. Please note that the licenses issued by the SIA have to be renewed every three years.

However, the basic training approved by the SIA might not be sufficient. Security Services UK offers a wide range of services including, but not limited to, event security and crowd control, close protection services, patrolling, counter surveillance, door supervision, retail and corporate security and residential security and CCTV installation and management. Therefore, we expect our officers to be trained in at least some of the above fields if not the majority. For some fields, Security Services UK provides training on the job. Please call or e-mail us for more details.

Other attributes Security Services UK look for in our security officers include professionalism, integrity and communication skills. We do a lot of corporate security work and sometimes our security officers are invited to perform an assignment within the corporate environment of our client, which requires them to act and behave accordingly.

Security Services UK have worked hard to earn its reputation as a trustworthy, reliable provider of security services, and we need our members of staff to have the same values in order to uphold the company's reputation and invest in relationships with our clients. This is why Security Services UK place a big emphasis on communicating with our customers. We can only get to know their needs and expectations and learn to anticipate any changes in them by maintaining constant communication with them. Client feedback is of utmost importance to Security Services UK because we use it to integrate any changes into our business model that can make things better for our customers. Therefore, strong communication skills are an important entry requirement for our security officers. This requirement covers both verbal and written communication - officers would need to be able to communicate in a manner that is both professional and affable in person and on paper. Written communication skills are required because our security officers need to write reports about their assignments quite often, to be presented to their supervisors and to the clients in many cases. Verbal communication skills would be invaluable when communicating with clients and also during jobs - for example if you are working retail security assignment or door supervision at a nightclub. These communications skills always go hand-in-hand with conflict diffusing skills. In Security Services UK, we prefer to resolve conflicts without using violence, and that is why we recruit people who have the relevant skills and experience with the police or the military and who prioritise a client's safety and peace of mind above all else at all times.

One of Security Services UK members of staff would be more than happy to answer any questions you might have.
