    How does the recruitment process for security guards at Unified Security Group work?

    Applications for current work avaialable positions are invited via http://www.seek.com.au. Once these applications are reviewed, pertinent applicants are then invited to take part in a first round of interviews. A review process then takes place with Operation Managers assessing the suitability of each of the first round candidates. A final interview round is organised with candidates from the first round who best meet the criteria for the available position(s). Prior to the commencement of the final interview round, reference checks are performed, Security Licenses are verified, and when management is satisfied with the candidate(s) supplied documentation, the final interviews take place where position(s) may be awarded. Please Note: Unified is an equal opportunity employer.

    How often do you recruit Security Guards?

    Unified has grown significantly over the last decade and is well positioned in the market to expect growth in guard services well into the next decade. Unified has periods where a review of current engagaed officers are reviewed, if an intake drive is necessary to facilitate a new contract acquisition, they will be advertised on http://seek.com.au. These are unpredictable and difficult to forecast due to the nature of varying tendering processes.
