"To grow stronger together by caring for our customers and being considerate to our staff."
Profile Security Services was established in Aberdeen in 1980. The company’s founder is still its Chairman, proof that our core values still endure today. Having identified a gap in the market, Profile provided manned guarding services to the growing oil industry in the North of Scotland, working with blue-chip clients such as Shell Oil and BP.
Word spread south, as Profile Security quickly earned a reputation for the professionalism of its management team and the quality of its highly skilled Security Officers. Looking to build a nationwide presence, Profile opened an office in Milton Keynes where it soon enjoyed similar success, adding CCTV monitoring, alarm response and key holding to a growing portfolio of services.
Since then, Profile has developed from a manned guarding business to a total security solutions provider. Today, we operate in a wide range of industry sectors, providing reliability, flexibility and innovation.
Profile’s growth has accelerated as a result of its commitment to quality and continuous development. We have built our business on a strong set of core values – ethics, respect, trust, professionalism, discipline, reliability, clear communication and a commitment to staff welfare, development and continuous improvement.
It is thanks to the expertise and commitment of our people that we are able to continually meet the requirements of our contracts, deliver exceptional service and exceed the expectations of our customers.
But don’t just take our word for it. Profile and its people are regular nominees at the industry’s annual Security Excellence Awards, collecting the top award for Contract Security Manager of the Year in 2009 and joining the finalists in 2010.
Profile is dedicated to the principles of Quality Assurance and Quality Control.
Profile is a member of the Security Industry Authority, the organisation responsible for regulating private security contractors. Profile Security Services Limited currently holds SIA Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS) status for the provision of Door Supervision, Security Guarding, Key Holding and Public Space CCTV. This voluntary initiative has been developed in consultation with representatives from across the security industry. Accreditation means we are demonstrably committed to customer service and the compulsory licensing of our staff.
Among the many benefits for our clients is the peace of mind that comes from knowing that our employment practices have been assessed in respect of quality and best practice. All of which means, we’ll continue to ensure that our security professionals meet the very highest standards, measured against a set of independently assessed criteria.
Profile is an accredited NSI Gold Standard company. In order to obtain and maintain this status, Profile must demonstrate that it meets the highest British and European performance standards. It must screen all relevant security staff and have robust training, development and competency procedures in place. In addition, it must show evidence of reliability and stability through its long record of performance.
Profile is a member of the IPSA, a worldwide organisation responsible for the promotion of ethical, professional practice across the security industry. Membership of the IPSA provides us with opportunities to exchange best practice and information with our peers in the industry. It also gives us access to the latest studies and research conducted into the provision of security services.
Profile has been awarded Safe Contractor Approved accreditation, evidence of our commitment to best practice in Health & Safety, Risk Management and Business Continuity. We are audited annually to ensure continued adherence to legislation. Our commitment in this area is demonstrated through our SSHE Policy and Security Management Systems, our Risk Assessment and Management Processes, and our Business Continuity Plan.
Profile is recognised by CHAS, the market leader for health & safety pre-qualification in the UK. By meeting the core criteria, buyers short-listing companies that belong to the scheme can save time and resources, helping them to navigate quickly through the first stages of competence assessment.
One of the world's leading occupational health & safety and environmental organisations, Profile’s membership of the British Safety Council is further proof of our commitment to best practice. Profile’s London office is also a registered centre for the BSC Level 1 Certificate in Health & Safety at Work.
As well as enjoying SIA Approved Contractor status, Profile is a member of Pacesetters, the UK’s leading group of security companies.
Helping prospective clients and procurement specialists identify which companies are among the very best in the country, Pacesetters brings together the top 15% best-scoring performers. Where basic SIA accreditation requires that a security firm scores a nominal score of zero, only those reaching +86 and over in their annual inspection become eligible for Pacesetters status.
