Uniformed Security Officer- Thatcham (Near Reading)

  • Department: Security
  • Location: Thatcham
  • Job type: Full Time
  • Contract Type: Permanent
  • Job reference: VAC- 11188

You will become part of our Uniformed Security team, based at our distribution Centre in Thatcham. Your main goal will be to provide a reassuring  security presence to all staff &customer. To be a deterrent to those who wish to cause harm or loss to the Company, its staff and customers. To prevent and detect offences against the Company, its staff, customers, products & assets.

About us

We are a team of around 12 security officers. We work on a four on four off rota, made up of day or night shifts. You will be dealing with physical security, patrols, asset protection, first aid response and emergency situations. You will remain calm under pressure and react quickly in challenging situations.

About you

To be successful, you will possess a solid security background with a focus on customer service, ideally within a retail environment. A Guardian Licence or SIA Door Supervisor licence are desirable.

As no two days at Harrods are the same, you will need to be highly adaptable.

Whilst our security team has safety as their top priority, providing a warm and approachable face for visitors to the Thatcham site, is also key.

Committed to exceptional customer service, you will leap at the chance to go the extra mile for those you come into contact with. At times, this role can be physically demanding and a high level of fitness is essential on application.

You will also be required to write reports, document investigations, and keep your personal notebook up-to-date. With this in mind, we are looking for candidates with a GCSE or equivalent in English, and strong overall communication skills.

Our Promise to You

As well as strong long-term career potential and development support, you’ll also benefit from an excellent benefits package, including a company pension, flexible working, 25 days’ holiday and your birthday off, up to 33% in-store discount and a season ticket loan.

At Harrods we believe nothing is impossible. We drive ourselves and inspire others to always push for more. This passion to exceed is what sets us apart. We are proud to be a place where standing out means being yourself.

At Harrods we believe the personality and authenticity of our people sets us apart. We celebrate and invite applications from all cultures, backgrounds, tastes and experiences and are proud of our culture where people from all walks of life can grow and thrive. What makes you unique makes us exceptional.
