Uniformed Security Officer
This vacancy has expired
We are looking for a Uniformed Security Officer that will prevent and detect offences against staff, visitors and contractors and will safeguard the company’s property, merchandise, monies and assets.
About the role
With your excellent interpersonal skills, you will work closely with a team of Uniformed Security officers to actively patrol the store and be on the lookout for potential offences. You’ll also liaise with employees, the public, and police on day-to-day security matters, meet with other investigative agencies and conduct inquiries on their behalf if needed. Meanwhile, you’ll keep up to date with any legislation that may affect your role.
You will need exceptional interpersonal skills, as well as proficiency in conflict management and resolution techniques. You will require a high standard of personal appearance and a level of health and fitness that enables you to carry out the full duties associated with this position, which may include dealing with confrontational situations, as well as standing or patrolling for long periods of time. This role requires mental resilience to occupational hazards like abusive and threatening behaviour, dealing with confrontation and pressures.
The role also necessitates a 4 on 4 off shift pattern that may include working at other Company premises and will include weekends, night work, Bank Holidays or Public Holidays as normal days of work. Additionally, extra hours and/or days of work maybe required and/or changed by the department, but with adequate notice (typically 48 hours) and therefore, a flexible approach is needed.
