5 key reasons to choose Carter Solutions & Services Limited as your security provider

If you’re considering a security provider for your business it can be difficult to know where to start. By choosing a security company, you’re putting your faith in them to keep both your staff and your assets safe. It’s a big decision and one that shouldn’t be taken lightly. We’ve put together 5 key reasons why we feel as though choosing us would be the right decision for your business.

1.We operate nationally

First and foremost is the location. Although we’re based in Wisbech, we operate across the UK on a national scale. We’re well-equipped to remotely manage staff, and take great steps to ensure that the quality of the security we provide is exactly the same whether it’s 5 miles from our head office or 500 miles! This means, no matter where you are in the UK, we will be able to assist you.

2.We never subcontract

So many security companies subcontract their staff, and in doing so they risk the quality of service that the men and women representing their company are providing. When you subcontract, you have little say on training, and you lose the ability to personally develop individuals, and reward them! By never subcontracting we maintain the high standards of security across our company and work hard to keep a positive company culture, providing the right support to our staff and exceptional security for our clients.

3.We have nearly 30 years of experience in the security sector

Our three decades of experience spans working across a number of different industries, providing a wide range of services.

Our services include:

  • Manned guarding
  • Mobile patrols
  • Key holding and alarm response
  • Door supervisors
  • CCTV
  • Event security

4.We have our own purpose-built training facility

We take training extremely seriously. The law is always changing when it comes to security, and that makes it even more important to have a designated space at our head office in Wisbech that allows all of our security officers and support staff the opportunity to engage in thorough and regular training.

5.We have a reputation for excellence

We have worked hard to build and maintain a reputation that reflects the exceptional security services we offer. Our testimonials talk confidently about recommending to ‘anyone who asks’, and having ‘no hesitation in renewing’ their contracts with us. We agree that we ‘set the bar high’ and plan on keeping it as high as can be for every single one of our clients.

For more information on how we can work with you to provide a quality security service at your business premises, please don’t hesitate to get in touch a member of our team.

Alternatively, 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 our staff, we invest in their training and we work hard to support our staff. We look forward to meeting you.

    Is your industrial site secure?

    Industrial sites tend to be away from residential areas, and they’re known for having expensive machinery inside often poorly protected buildings. It’s often the case that industrial sites utilise shift working patterns too. This makes it difficult to keep the building secure, as so many people regularly come and go, making it tricky to keep an eye on unauthorised personnel gaining access to restricted areas. This makes it particularly important to assess your security needs and hire an experienced security provider that understands your specific requirements.

    The importance of corporate security

    Theft is one of the most common types of a security breach in the corporate world. Alongside accounting fraud and corruption, corporate security inflicts far more damage on society than all of street crime combined. This highlights the necessity for private security firms like Carter Solutions and Services Limited to provide a professional and reliable service to prevent and manage crime at your business.

    Why is a SIA license important?

    Security officers granted additional powers to tackle crime

    Crime happens everywhere. Whilst Carter Solutions and Services Limited focus on commercial security at your place of work, the truth is that crime isn’t exclusive to business premises. For example, our door supervisors know this only too well, as being responsible for the security at licensed gaming venues, as well as nightclubs, gives them an insight into what goes on in the early hours of the morning of a town centre. This often requires our team to step in to diffuse situations, operating within the confines of the law as dictated by SIA licensing standards, before calling the local authorities.

    Security at gigs and other music venues

    For many, the summer means attending festivals and gigs, but these events happen all year round and if you have a setting with great acoustics, it’s likely you’ll have bands playing almost every weekend! Whilst this is a great way to attract people to your venue, you need to consider security, not just for your headliner, but for your paying guests too.

    Proud to support The Purfleet Trust

    Homelessness is something that could happen to everyone, at any time. One minute you could have the keys to your own home, and the next you could be looking for a doorway to sleep in – alone and lonely. Homelessness is a national issue, it is a terrifying situation that far too many people find themselves in, and it’s charities like The Purfleet Trust that help to support these vulnerable individuals in their time of need.

    Thank you to Your local Paper for the fantastic images

    What modules does a SIA license cover

    We never subcontract our staff, as we believe we’d lose the close relationship we have with the people in our team. We therefore take hiring new security officers extremely seriously, as the nature of the role requires remote working. This means we are putting our trust into our security guards to represent Carter Solutions and Services and maintain our exceptional reputation.

    One thing we require upon application is a valid SIA license as this demonstrates a strong basic knowledge of what is expected. The qualification is the first step in a career in security and covers a vast array of modules, summarised below

    Summer Security at School

    Most schools have or are about to finish for the summer. Whilst we have no doubt you’ll be excited about 6 weeks of freedom, the summer break leaves your school, college or university vulnerable. Publishing the last day of term online is something all students and parents expect, after all, it’s your duty to let everyone know term times. But, what you’re also inadvertently doing is advertising to criminals that the building, or buildings, will be empty for a prolonged period of time. This makes it an easy target.

    Security guards in the news

    This week it’s been upsetting to see not one, not two, but three accounts of security officers being attacked during their shifts. Unfortunately, facing abuse is a known risk of the job, but that doesn’t excuse aggressive behaviour towards security guards, and it’s always something taken very seriously. In the below examples reported in the news this week, most attacks were a result of the perpetrator trying to steal, and the security officer on duty simply doing their role. Shoplifting is clearly against the law, and getting caught in the act was enough to drive these criminals to violence.

    Feeling safe is something many of us take for granted. When you feel safe and secure in the workplace, you can relax and concentrate on other things – be that building working relationships or being more productive.
