Services include the Company’s intelligence, leading-edge travel safe and tracking services globally, as well as other security services which are supported by comprehensive systems and processes, and which form a major part of the remit of this position.

This is a permanent full-time position based in the Operations Centre, responsible for the provision of these 24/7/365 first-line services to clients across all security service areas – travel safe, close protection, tracking, investigations, surveillance, crisis management and emergency helplines. Previous operations and / or experience of working in a similar operational environment managing front-line support response services with International experience is desirable but not essential.

Previous research and / or operational experience is an advantage, particularly within an operations centre / environment in a front-line support response role delivering similar tasks, although this is not essential as training will be given.
