Security Supervisor in Cambridge City Centre, Cambridgeshire
Professional and helpful
City Security Services were successful in obtaining the contract for our site which was previously held by another major security company.
From the beginning, even during the initial stages of visiting the site prior to achieving the contract, the people we first met were enthusiastic, open and excited about employing our team.
Contractually our hours have not changed of course, 12 hour shifts are standard within this industry, therefore you should understand this prior to even considering a job within security.
The pay rate is fair compared to any other company but with City Security Services, this will be performance related annually.
I never had a pay review for 4 years with the previous company.
My line manger is exceptional, helpful and very approachable, again something which is better as a comparison.
There are other necessary mangers who are at hand as required, a dedicated control room and a control room manager, all of whom have been approachable and understanding.
Booking on and off for duty is via a dedicated App, patrols are also recorded with the App.
This is all fairly faultless and self explanatory and allows the job to be done efficiently knowing that everything is recorded for the client / customer which promotes the professionalism expected.
If the App fails to record book on and off the control room has to be contacted, this is the only downside of the whole process as it depends who takes your call, not everyone seems to be as forthcoming with information or the ability to promote confidence that your call was important.
However, on the limited times that this has happened, a courtesy email to our line manager logs the concern.
With City Security Services I finally feel like a worthwhile member of team that is growing with an ambition to employ professional and positive security officers.
We have an impressive portfolio of client / customers who require confidence in their contracted security officers.
From my point of view City Security Services tick all those boxes for me at least.
