Great Company

I have worked for Cordant for nearly 4 years and I enjoy my job and my work colleagues are helpful and friendly, we all get on extremely well. Team leaders and managers are always available whenever needed and encouragement and support is always given. Since Covid19 we now work from home and I feel we have been given all the equipment, training and support needed.

Conducive environment to work in with absolutely friendly atmosphere

Great work atmosphere with friendly colleagues, good line management, HR support, and fantastic workplace culture. I have been with Cordant Services for over twenty years - since 1999 - and would not hesitate to give a good recommendation. The most enjoyable part of the job is the overwhelming sense of belonging and awareness of job satisfaction.


Good communication and appreciation for productive and excellent work.

Supportive colleagues

I have worked for Cordant Security for almost 11 years and have progressed through several departments to my current position. I am always encouraged by my line manager and supportive co-workers, and have been given sufficient training for the roles I have undertaken. I have always been paid in a timely manner.

Supportive management

I've been employed by Cordant for 10 years now. In this time, I have learned a great deal from the management team and from colleagues and clients alike. Management have always supported me with my CPD and have envolved me in projects. As a site based operative, it is essential to have management support when needed, I am confident in approaching the management team for advice and support. Any pay issues from my staff have been rectified in a timely mannor. Personally,I have never had any issues with my pay.

Good Company , Fair Pay

Cordant is a good company to work for , the people are friendly and welcoming, the job is fast paced and an enjoyable, they have been very supportive especially during the difficult times with Covid. Management is supportive with training on joining and on going training, they are quick to respond to any queries. Any problems faced by staff from outside sources are dealt with quickly and efficiently by management and staff are made to feel valued. There is a lot of self management and trust in the day to day actives, there is not a micromanagement culture although there are targets to meet


Working from home, Fair pay

Strongly reccomend ,look elsewhere

No communication at all. They don't give no thoughts, no appreciation. From top to the bottom off managing staff treat the employers like slaves. They lost so many contracts include bigest one Primark, Morrisons etc..

just come to work and do the job.

just work. come to work and meet the clients needs. Help customers when they need it. Be assertive and act on any danger that prevents itself. I pride myself of been a customer friendly person and can interact with all sorts of people...

supportive and fair

just finished an enjoyable year doing nights.very useful learning experience as i was new to the industry at the start.managers will provide support when needed and understand the challenging nature of the part of the job is dealing with the public which is very satisfying.overall if you have a good attitude,it will not go unnoticed.


supportive and empathic management, good camaraderie with fellow cordant guards


negative attitudes from certain individuals can be mentally draining

What's not to like about Security. Everyday is different. Working with all different people. Whilst doing my role I have learned many things from people Management to interview techniques, overt and covert operations. Hardest part is switching off at the end of the day.
