Interested in jobs for a security officer in the United Kingdom?

Security is a burgeoning industry in the UK and there are job opportunities to be found everywhere. The lion's share of jobs for a security officer in the United Kingdom are located in cities, but there are also plenty of businesses in towns and villages that employ security companies.

The only requirement for security officers in the UK is that they hold the SIA licence. This can be gained by completing a SIA training course with SIA providers, including Get Licensed, AAB Training and Train 2 Protect. A basic course can be booked for as little as £95.

The first step to landing a security job in the United Kingdom is sending a carefully prepared CV to employers and recruitment agencies in your area. It should clearly state your key skills and strengths in no more than two pages. Skills and strengths that employers in the security industry look out for include conflict resolution, communication skills and the ability to work in a team.

It's also quite important to be in a reasonable physical condition if you're interested in security jobs in the United Kingdom. Some jobs can be quite demanding, and it might be necessary to undertake a few weeks training before you're ready to take up a position. However, for some roles, such as CCTV operators, this is not a big factor for securing a position.

It's essential that candidates for security jobs in the UK have a clean criminal history. If you've been convicted of a crime in the past, you'll find your opportunities in the industry severely limited.
