We look at what you can expect from security trades and general services jobs

The security industry is one that has seen huge growth in the past few years, something which sets it aside from the vast majority of sectors in the United Kingdom and beyond. Due to the fact that many companies are only now starting to realise just how important security is for the future of their business, the level of demand for highly skilled security operatives has gone through the roof lately.

This means that there are plenty of security trades and general services jobs out there for anyone who is searching for a challenging and exciting new career move. With so many massive companies operating in the security industry, those of you who excel in the field should have no problem whatsoever when it comes to finding jobs.

There are plenty of different kinds of security based positions available in the United Kingdom right now, however all of them have one thing in common. Before you will be considered for any security based positions, you are going to need to have an SIA (Security Industry Authority) license in your possession. This license was introduced by the government in an attempt to regulate the security industry to ensure that only those who are physically and mentally able for the job are granted the right to work in the industry. You can check out more about that at sia.gov.uk today.

With many companies like G4Securicor, Securitas, Reliance Security and VSG Secruity in operation throughout the United Kingdom, you'll have plenty of potential positions to choose from. You could opt for a front line security guard position, which usually pays between £7.80 and £12.00 per hour, or you could take a look at some of the newer positions, such as network security and CCTV installation, which pay between £9.95 and £25.00 per hour, depending on the company in question.
