If you’re looking to further your career in security as a security officer for an employer that values you, then you’re in the right place! We’re always on the look-out for the right individuals that can represent Carter Security and build a positive relationship with our clients. So, here’s all you need to know before interviewing for a security officer position with us…

1.Ensure you have a valid SIA license

Before applying for a position with us, it’s important that you already hold a valid SIA license. For us this is a non-negotiable part of the process as it sets the basic standard that all of our security officers must meet. It also means that whoever we interview already has a good idea of what a career in security entails. A career in security is a lifestyle choice, not just a job opportunity, and an SIA license details exactly what a role as a security officer is.

2. Always be yourself

Although we're a large company with security contracts across the UK, we are largely a family run business and have very humble foundations. We take the time to get to know the security officers who operate with us and therefore being your authentic self at an interview will always make for a more successful outcome. We operate with a no-nonsense approach, and we appreciate anyone who is open and honest about their future aspirations and intentions. As an inclusive employer, we welcome those from all backgrounds to apply.

3. Be prepared to represent a company with an excellent reputation

We work hard to maintain the impeccable reputation we've built and we have remote management processes are in place to support not only our security officers but our clients as well. The security officers contracted to our clients often become an extension of the client's team, with Carter Security officers even receiving internal awards from clients themselves! We take the security of whatever business we're working alongside extremely seriously, therefore it's vitally important that an individual holds the same values as us.

4. Ask us questions, we’re here to support you through the process

We're a transparent, highly respected business that will support individuals to reach their career aspirations. If you're looking to progress in the security industry, we can and will support you in doing so. At the interview, don't be afraid to ask us how we can support your goals and reward excellent service - we'd be more than happy to explain how our company culture can encourage people to succeed.
