How Do I Get a Job in Security?

Like any career, the first thing you need to do before applying for a job is to get the appropriate training and licenses.

If you can say yes to the first 7 headings we can help you achieve the last requirement on the list. In fact, we almost guarantee that if you can without any doubt say yes to the first 7 requirements you will already have most of skills it takes to obtain your security licence.

Under the Private Security Industry Authority Act 2001, all individuals wishing to work in the private security industry must undertake a recognised qualification before applying for a licence. We can help you obtain the licence you need to get you started.
