What a month September has been! We are delighted to have provided staff at eleven events this month, ranging from music events to various different sporting events across the country.
We kick-started the month at Brockwell Park in London, where we had a team to oversee the “Wide Awake” festival which took place on the first weekend in September. We have also been busy at the “Vitality T20 Blast Finals Day” at Edgbaston where our events team were on hand throughout to ensure the day ran smoothly, with the crowd’s safety at the forefront.
We also ran the ringside security at the Frank Warren Prospects show, which featured upcoming stars of the sport such as south Londoner Louie Lynn who was defending his WBC International Silver Featherweight title in a ten-round contest against Bradford’s Amin Jahanzeb. The event took place on Friday the 10th of September and was held at the Copper Box Arena, located at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. We ended the month working at the Emirates Old Trafford where we provided security at the Courteeners concert which had 50,000 fans in attendance.
Following on from our recent success in winning the BSA business of the year award in June, we are excited to share that we have been shortlisted for another two awards! We have been selected as finalists in the ‘Security Company of the Year’ category at the prestigious Security & Fire Excellence Awards which will be held in London in November. We have also been shortlisted for the “Outstanding in Customer Service” at the Solihull Awards, which will be taking place on the 14th of October. This ceremony showcases the fantastic range of businesses in our local area so we are delighted to be involved.
Along with our recent office expansion, our head office team is continuously growing. We welcomed Pheobe in to our HR team earlier this month to support the growing workload, as well as Sadie, who started her Accounting Apprenticeship with us. We have also promoted internally to fill our Marketing and Communications Executive role, with Tom from our Vetting department starting the new position at the beginning of October.
We recently invited film crew to HQ, who recorded footage for an exciting upcoming project! Our new Control Room was featured, as well as our new space at Unit 7 which includes sleek new offices and luxurious conference areas. All will be revealed!
