How SGC Guarantee Excellence in Staffing

In every company recruitment is the first step to get the right people and at SGC Security Services we can state with pride that our recruitment process is meticulously designed to identify and hire the best individuals in the security industry, ensuring that our clients receive the highest level of service and protection. Our approach embodies “Excellence as Standard” in every step.

The journey begins with our dedicated HR department, who utilise a new, cutting-edge online system. This platform enables us to efficiently post job adverts and identify SIA qualified individuals near our vacancies. This technological advantage allows SGC Security Services to attract top talent swiftly and strategically.

Before any formal interviews, HR requests a series of essential documents from each candidate. This includes SIA cards, which we verify using an SIA checker to ensure their legitimacy. This thorough document verification is crucial for maintaining the high standards we set for our security personnel.

Candidates meeting our initial requirements undergo a preliminary phone screening by HR. This step assesses their suitability and readiness for the role. Successful candidates are then forwarded to Aaron or Nigel, our Regional Operations Managers, for a comprehensive formal interview. This ensures that only the most qualified individuals proceed further.

To uphold the highest levels of trust and security, we employ an external, impartial company to vet all our employees. We also mandate that any labour providers we subcontract follow this rigorous vetting process. At SGC Security Services, our SIA officers undergo vetting in accordance with BS7858, involving a detailed 5-year background check. Even our stewards are subjected to a 2-year background check, reflecting our commitment to security excellence by employing this measure that is not yet industry standard.

Our policy is uncompromising: any candidate who fails the vetting process will not be employed by SGC Security Services. This strict standard ensures that our team only includes individuals who meet our stringent criteria for reliability and trustworthiness.

To further safeguard our operations, enhanced DBS checks are conducted on Head Office staff and personnel assigned to specific contracts, especially those in hospitals. This additional layer of scrutiny ensures that our staff are thoroughly vetted and suitable for environments requiring the highest level of security clearance.

None of this would be possible without our incredible HR team. At SGC, the pivotal role of our HR team cannot be overstated. From the initial job posting to the final hiring decision, HR ensures that every step of our recruitment process upholds our core values. Their meticulous attention to detail and unwavering commitment to high standards are what allow SGC to consistently hire the best in the industry. It is through their dedication and expertise that we can confidently promise “Excellence as Standard” to all our clients.
