Working in Night Security in London, Jobs and Requirements

London has a number of public and private buildings and locations that require night security staff. Here we discuss some of the various requirements for night security in London, the jobs that are on offer, and the tasks that are associated with them.

In order to work as a security guard in the UK you are required to be licensed with the Security Industry Authority, or SIA. The only exception to this requirement is if your employer has been granted an exemption under the Private Security Industry Act. In order to obtain a license, candidates must be eligible under the Criminality Criteria set out by the organisation. Those who have criminal records may not be excluded under these criteria, depending on the nature of their past crimes.

The role of night security officer can mean different things depending on the organisation in question. Office blocks and other buildings that are generally active during the day only will require night staff to monitor the location during the hours of inactivity. Roles of this kind generally involve regular patrols and the monitoring of CCTV cameras. Some businesses, such as 24 hour shops and supermarkets, will also require night security staff. These roles require security officers to monitor clients who are on the premises, and to protect staff, equipment and products located on site.
