Find part time security jobs in London

Security officers are required by a large proportion of shops, businesses and office blocks. Therefore there are a number of part and full time security jobs in London available to suitable applicants.

In order to work as security guard you may need to be the holder of a Security Industry Authority (SIA) licence. Whether or not you will require a licence depends on your exact duties and role, and on the activities listed in the job description. While many security agencies require that applicants be in possession of an SIA licence when they apply, some agencies will take on suitable candidates and help them to acquire one.

If you wish to obtain part time security jobs in London, you may therefore need to apply for an SIA licence. There are many different licences available, which are determined by the type of role in question. In order to be granted a licence of this kind, you will first be subjected to a Criminal Record Check. Candidates who have a criminal record are not automatically barred from obtaining a licence however, and applications are judged on a case by case basis.

Some of the roles for which SIA licences are mandatory include Door Supervision, Close Protection, the guarding of Cash and Valuables in Transit and Key Holding. If you are unsure as to whether your role is licensable you are advised to contact the SIA directly, at sia.homeoffice.gov.uk.
