COVID-19 is still very much with us, but the end of the furlough scheme and returning to work is now something many people are facing. This brings two factors into consideration – how can employers mitigate the risk to their employees and customers, and how can individuals take steps towards a career that reduces their social contact. 

Securing your business premises with extra measures to reduce the spread of infection.

One of the key things that a security contractor can do to assist lockdown exit strategies in businesses is door supervision. This includes monitoring entrances and exits to your building, ensuring that overcrowding isn’t an issue, and any specific guidance and company policies you might have at your business surrounding facemasks, sanitising hands, and perhaps NHS COVID-19 passports are adhered to.

This allows your staff to concentrate on their primary duties, allowing them to be much more productive and efficient, instead of being concerned about coronavirus procedures.

Could Security be your next career move?

If you’ve been shielding throughout the pandemic or if you’ve been on furlough for an extending period of time or have been made redundant then returning to work post COVID-19 could be an area of concern for you.

A career in security could mean working outside or working throughout the night – meaning very few other people are around. This could suit your lifestyle and settle your concerns around catching COVID-19, making it an ideal career move.

So, if you’re looking to further your career within the security industry, please check the careers section 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.
