As well as direct, dynamic management, Profile draws its strength from its Security Officers, men and women who are a cut above the competition for three key reasons:
Whether recruiting our own personnel or taking on board existing staff via TUPE transfers, we will make sure each and every Security Officer meets our exacting standards. We take nothing for granted, so our selection process is very demanding. And, as well as making sure that new employees have all the competencies that the job requires, we’ll look for evidence that individuals ‘fit’ with your core values.
All staff are independently screened in line with the BS7858 Code of Practice and undergo enhanced vetting through the Criminal Records Bureau before references are taken up.
It is a condition of employment that all Profile Security Officers hold a current SIA licence. We see security as a lasting career opportunity for our staff, a philosophy we encourage in the care we take to train them. Far from attracting stop-gap jobbers, our practice is to recruit those looking further ahead. We open doors to new opportunities and challenges, and we reward commitment and initiative.
The rewards can be measured in a number of ways:
Thanks to careful selection, many of our security staff already bring a wealth of experience with them. But we leave nothing to chance. Every member of the Profile team – management included – undergoes customized training to match the demands that will be made of them.
We adhere to training Code of Practice BS7499, standards which we regard as a minimum. As well as achieving widely recognised Scottish and National Vocational Qualifications (S/NVQ) and beyond, our stepped, co-ordinated programme seeks to build on the broad-based learning we foster with Site-Specific and Continuation Training. Our Security Officers enrol on widely recognised BTech courses that range from First Aid to Crisis Management, Close Surveillance to Remote Electronic Monitoring.
