Helping you find a career in the security industry
Security is in charge of keeping everyone safe. There are many ways that security guards do this - preventing overcrowding, monitoring cameras, or dealing with antisocial behaviour are just a few examples.
The work can be dangerous and security has a high level of responsibility. You have to remain alert or the consequences can be disastrous.
There's a variety of work available within the industry so it's suited to those who want to carve their own career path instead of following a predefined one. Contracted work could enable you to travel internationally, providing security services around the world! At the same time, the working hours can be long, particularly if you are working events.
Security is traditionally a very male-dominated industry, which is partly due to it attracting a lot of ex-military, and women were excluded from combat roles. However, there are societies to support women in security and champion their professional development.
There are numerous extra qualifications you can get working in security. You could pursue a career in dog handling if you're an animal lover or take professional martial arts training and justify it for your job! Many personal bodyguards have additional qualifications to help them land private contracts.
