Description

An established, professional company, ICTS employs over 4,000 people in the UK and provides corporate security solutions throughout Europe. In this role you will ensure the security and safety of warehouse stock, premises and colleagues for the world's leading on-line retailer.

Working in a modern, fast-paced fulfilment centre, you will carry out a range of duties including:
•   Managing access control for employees, visitors and contractors
•   Patrolling the site on foot to deter and detect stock loss
•   Conducting bag and body searches using hand-held metal detectors
•   Screening people using walk-through scanners
•   Dealing professionally with incidents including positive searches
•   Responding to customer requests and queries
•   Maintaining records using computer- and paper-based systems

Normal hours of work are guaranteed at an annual average of 40 hours/week on a 6-on / 3-off shift pattern including days and nights.   However, the distribution centre operates 24/7 and as a member of a small team you will need to be reliable and flexible to support your colleagues as required. 

An SIA Door Supervision (DS) or Security Guarding (SG) license is essential, and to succeed in this role you will also need:
•   Excellent communication and interpersonal skills
•   The ability to remain calm and professional under pressure
•   Experience in a customer-facing role, ideally in security
•   Five years’ checkable history and references
•   To pass a criminal records check (CRC) to the required standards

The following would also be useful, but are not essential:
•   SIA Public Space Surveillance (PSS) (CCTV) licence
•   First Aid qualification
•   Experience in a similar role

Full training, uniform, health and safety equipment (PPE), on-site refreshments and free car-parking are provided.
 
Established in 1987, ICTS specialises in the provision of integrated security and customer services within the most demanding environments.  ICTS works with major public attractions, leisure, financial, retail, public sector, transport and government bodies.  We take our commitment to principles of fairness and mutual respect for people of all faiths and cultures seriously and we expect our employees to do the same.

In order to apply for this vacancy, you must be able to supply the required answers to the following questions:

  • Do you have a valid Door Supervisor (DS) or Security Guarding (SG) SIA licence?
  • Can you provide original evidence of your right to work within the UK?
