All applicants must have an SIA License (for Security positions), a full 5 year work or education checkable history (with no gaps) and the right to work in the UK. For some positions, where driving a Company vehicle is a requirement or where site location and/or shift times dictate, a driving license and the use of your own transport will also be necessary.
