We cover the full spectrum of security services, while specialising in door supervision, event security, retail security and manned guarding. We are able to tailor our services to provide efficient and cost effective outsourced security solutions for our clients.

We now operate across the UK and have a rapidly increasing staff base.

We uphold the highest industry standards and continually strive to improve service levels and focus on customer service and responsiveness.

We have consistently received outstanding scores in our annual ACS audits, placing us in the top 5% of ACS qualified security companies.

Our current ACS score is +164

We achieved finalist status at the prestigious Security Excellence Awards in 2010, 2011 and 2013 for awards including; "Best Practice in Door Supervision", "Contribution to Standards in the Security Sector", "ACS Champion of the Year" and "I.T. Initiative of the Year".

Good Company to work with.

I have been working for Prosec over a year, honestly so far so good, I haven’t got much to complain about. They always have shifts for you and the managements team are excellent they always answer the call and ready to solve your problems. The wages are decent actually and they pay different wages according to where they give you shift.

Unreliable unprofessional no communication

At first everything went well until they upped my rate and didn’t pay there’s no communication between the company one says one thing and the other says another wouldn’t work for them ever again

Fast paced but well paid

Never had a issue with payment and shifts. The only downfall is the lack of holidays with everyone being on a zero hour contract.

Constantly ring even when sick

Always zero hour contracts yet your meant to be available to them months in advance. Hard to take days off. They will have you working 80-100 hours a week if you let them push you around. Offer no travel pay if they move you last minute. No security, so if you have a house, family etc, 100% don't work for them. They don't let you progress in your career, just keep you at the bottom. Often let clients down by not obligating their request of x amount of people, putting both the guards and public at risk.

Fast paced fun work for somewhat low pay

Standard security agency, paid weekly, have always been paid on time and never found a lack of work, some sites can be challenging while others easy for the same pay rate. Can sometimes be guilt tripped into working extra days but this has only happened a couple of times. Communication can sometimes be a problem but overall really enjoying the job, even if the pay is somewhat low.
