The role involves a specific focus on supporting the work of our Operations Department and you will work collaboratively to support our resourcing efforts with efficient and effective scheduling and planning, so you can achieve your objectives in an effective, efficient and enjoyable manner.

We are looking for a highly motivated individual with a proven track record in  planning resource allocation and scheduling. You may have experience from a different sector other than specialist security but you’ll have a proven ability to work under pressure and prioritise your daily and weekly tasks in an organised fashion.

  • Experience utilising ‘Timegate’ scheduling system is highly advantageous but not essential
  • Great interpersonal skills – with the ability to positively influence
  • Resourcefulness and a high-level of organisation
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills
