What a month July has been; we have all been riding high on our success at the British Security Industry Awards, where we were named ‘Business of the Year’ at the end of June.
We have enjoyed the press attention this has brought, and have been featured in SJUK, Business and Facilities News and FMUK. We also have exclusive interviews and articles coming up soon in Professional Security Magazine, The Times and Spectrum magazine. Check out our recent coverage here.
Following the completion of our new head office space last month, focus has shifted onto our control room transformation, with the renovation due to be fully finished by the end of August. The room has doubled in size and been kitted out with all the latest facilities and tech, and our secure keyholding room has also expanded. Finishing touches are still being added to the new HQ space, including branded furnishings and wall art. Our original home at Unit 5 has also had a makeover, with our new logo branded wallpaper going up outside CEO Iain’s office, already dubbed the ‘selfie wall’ by the team!
We are really enjoying being back out working at events up and down the country, and July has been busy! We have been involved in the recent test cricket matches in Lancashire and Edgbaston, and had a crew at Haydock Races. Our events team ran the ringside security for Frank Warren at the July 10th Royal Albert Hall show, and again on the 24th for Joe Joyce v Carlos Takam fight at Wembley Arena. Our events staff can also be seen featuring with Tyson Fury in charity CALM’s first ever TV ad, The Invisible Opponent, which premiered in the advert of ITV2’s Love Island last week.
Our recruitment and mobilisation teams are working hard to set up new sites that have begun in July for an existing logistics client, and preparing for more due to start in August and September in various locations including Birmingham, Worcestershire, Peterborough, Milton Keynes and Bolton.
In July we welcomed Dave and Fiona to our Accounts team, in the roles of Apprentice and Financial Controller respectively. We are also looking to expand our head office team with current opportunities in the control room, HR team and recruitment team.
