Relevant Training

All of our guards have undergone the necessary training in order to gain the relevant skills and knowledge which are critical if they are to perform their job to the standards we and our clients expect. We do not sub-contract staff or security guards.

Our guards are carefully selected for specific jobs to ensure they have the correct background and knowledge to apply to that job. In effect this means they can hit the ground running, as it were.

Honesty is one of the most important qualities in an excellent security guard. Our clients need to be sure that by letting one of our guards take charge, that they are reliable and trustworthy and they need not be concerned with breaches of security, confidential information being leaked, or inside jobs being carried out.

Common sense

Although there are certain policies and regulations to follow our guards also need to use their common sense to know when and how to work around any issues, particularly if there is any element of danger or risk to the client.

Able to lead and follow

Many times our security guards are hired as part of a team which means they need to know when they need to step up and take charge. This is especially important in the event that the safety of the client is at risk. They also need to know how to follow any rules or instructions laid down by the client, although in certain cases these rules may need modifying to ensure legal requirements are met and that the client is kept safe.

Excellent communication skills

A good security guard has to know how to communicate well, both with the client and with other people they may have contact with on a daily basis.

Fit and healthy

The very best security guards keep themselves in shape and are healthy and fit. They’re also agile and nimble and able to defend themselves or their client should the occasion arise.

Puts value on human life

A really great security guard places value for human life above all else. In this line of work concern for other is critical and this allows the guard to work at their very best.
