We currently have vacancies for Security Officers, so taking the next step in your career in security could be much closer than you think! What does a career with us entail, and are you the right candidate for us to consider joining the Carter Security family?

You must hold an SIA license.

Firstly, you must hold an SIA license. This qualification can be applied for on the government website, and you must hold this before applying. The qualification takes you through the basics of what becoming a security officer involves. It also provides a detailed insight into the job itself. This will help you in deciding whether a career in security is for you.

The right attitude is a must.

Whilst incredibly rewarding, being a security officer can be tough! Training will include practicing de-escalation techniques, as a certain level of confrontation can be expected in this industry. If you’re working on a contract that involved lone working, you must be confident in your abilities to manage your workload as well as manage whatever situations may arise during your shift.

To represent Carter Security you must be trustworthy, a great communicator, and professional, both in your attitude and your general appearance.

You must be physically capable.

The importance of physical capability will be dependent on the contract assigned to you. For example, a security officer responsible for CCTV monitoring will require a different set of physical skills to a door supervisor at a licensed gaming venue. If you have any concerns about your physical ability, please just ask us directly and we’ll be able to discuss this with you at the interview.

So, if you’re looking to further your career within the security industry, please check on our website or email us an up-to-date copy of your C.V. We never subcontract, we invest in training, and we work hard to support our staff. You will need to hold a valid SIA license before applying.

For more information on how we can work advise you on security at your business this winter, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with a member of our team. We look forward to hearing from you.
