The security industry is one with diverse opportunities. The industry provides an invaluable role in protecting the safety and wellbeing of client property and the public. There is also a large selection of working environments to choose from after you have your security licence and, once you have some general security experience, you will be able to focus on a certain area of specialisation if you wish. Whether you want to lead a team of front-of-house guards at a hotel or nightclub or work in sporting event security, there are many exciting options you can choose. Security guards are currently in high demand, and always will be. Many different situations and buildings require security guards, so by becoming one, you are making yourself employable by a whole range of companies, across multiple industries.
Security work can be very rewarding and make a difference to people’s lives. Often, the watchful presence of a security guard is enough to deter criminals and prevent incidents. It can also be a stepping stone into other service industries, including police or defence forces. Many of the skills you will develop during your training, and your subsequent work as a security guard or officer, will help with your conflict negotiation skills, risk identification abilities, defensive tactics and team work capabilities.
