Progression, training and development opportunities

As this is a security role we're required by law to ask a number of screening questions. You'll only have to do this once to be eligible to apply for G4S and our wide range of security roles so we've made this as quick as possible.

In the current situation surrounding Coronavirus, the safety and security we provide to our customers, their premises and our staff continues to be our priority. We are taking steps to ensure our selection and onboarding processes can continue during this time in the safest way possible. Unfortunately, this does mean we are currently unable to offer the opportunity to put you through the training course required to obtain your SIA licence, therefore we can only consider applications from licenced candidates at this time
