As an Area Security Officer at G4S, you are more than a Security Guard. You’ll be a key part of our team covering a range of sites across a variety of locations to ensure the safety of our customers, staff, their buildings and assets, whilst providing excellent customer service with a smile. We pride ourselves on delivering excellent customer service in a safe and secure environment.
It’s a varied role where you will get to see a range of different sites and customers – the role will include greeting staff and visitors and ensuring they adhere to the required security protocols, conducting searches where required, patrolling the premises, and dealing with security incidents.

The Ideal Candidate
You will need to be a confident communicator who is a team player with the drive to provide a friendly and professional service at all times. A good IT knowledge is also key. You must be flexible and available to work on a varied shift pattern which will include days, nights, and weekends.
It would be a benefit to have some security experience and your SIA license, however, it’s not essential, as we provide full SIA (Security Industry Authority) license training.
As this is an area relief position, a full clean driving license and your own transport are essential. You will also need to be flexible to travel to a variety of locations including Dartford, Croydon, Chatham, Essex, and Aylesford.
Join G4S and you can also enjoy real career progression with a large international company – as the world’s leading provider of security solutions, we offer loads of training and support. You’ll be in safe hands from our induction and on-site training to regular reviews and welfare checks with our managers.
