Unified Security Group recognises that the backbone of any successful organisation is its staff, and we are proud to have built a strong workforce of dedicated and professional security personnel. From our security officers to our Management unit, the Unified team provides not only a customer focused security service, but continually develops and maintains a strong working partnership with our clients.
We also understand the importance of our staff enjoying the rewards of success. Throughout the many challenges the security industry has produced, and the various legislative changes that have been applied, Unified Security Group has always been at the forefront of offering award-rate remuneration and generous incentives to those who excel in their contribution. What this ensures is the development of solid relationships between staff and management, and the foundation of a unified team.
As a result, we have been able to consistently attract higher quality security personnel who are looking at building their career within our organisation. And as a true testament to our philosophies, we have found our best recruitment advertising strategy to be word of mouth. This can also be said of our client acquisitions!
So what do we look for in our security staff? Our recruitment strategy is based on a strict criterion which ensures all our client requirements are met. Some of the qualities we look for are:
- Varied experience;
- Superior communication skills (both verbal and written)
- Initiative and autonomous thinking
- Legislative awareness
- Industry knowledge
As we give every staff member the opportunity to grow with and within the organisation, we also have a focus on staff who are driven to succeed and who not only want the best for the company but the best for themselves.
Each new staff member undergoes a Unified Security Group induction prior to being assigned to a site. This includes a briefing on company policies and procedures and an overview of client requirements. Once they have their assignment, they complete a site induction program and complete a detailed brief on client specific requirements. As a part of the ongoing training programs on site, all staff complete training in all facets of Occupational Health and Safety both generically and site specific.
Finally, our security personnel take comfort in knowing that support is on hand 24hrs a day, 7 days a week. Via our 24hr access line, all personnel can be connected to a network of support units including patrol officers, Duty Managers, Business Managers and State or Regional Operations Managers. This ensures that operational staff and clients alike have continual access to senior management on and off site at any time. At Unified Security Group we know that it is essential that all stakeholders have access to support services to facilitate their relevant positions and to ensure that due diligence is carried out.
