Sector: Corporate Security

Job description


Security Officer

Department: People - Campus Security

£27,599 - £29,322 per annum

Permanent position, 36.5 hours per week (plus 5.5 hours contractual overtime)

Location: Coventry

Ref: 72503-129

The University of Warwick is a world-leading university, with the highest academic and research standards. We are constantly present in the UK and World top rankings, and our campus security team works proactively to provide a safe and enjoyable environment for our whole community.

As a security officer, you will be the ‘face of Warwick’, and a friendly and engaging first point of contact for the thousands of students, staff, business partners, and visitors that come to our beautiful, 750-acre campus every year from around the world.

You’ll need to be comfortable working on ‘the everyday’ (think monitoring CCTV cameras, patrolling our campus, and responding to fire alarms) to the ‘exceptional’ (managing major events, escorting VIP visitors, investigating crime on campus) and everything in between. We can honestly tell you that no two days are the same in this surprising, challenging and rewarding role.

We have four teams working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, and we operate on a ‘4 on, 4 off’, 12-hour shift pattern that consists of two days and two nights and is designed with your wellbeing and work-life balance in mind. Many of our officers are ex-armed forces, emergency services, and Prison Service or have experience of working in similar organisational roles and they bring the expertise and skills developed from those sectors into a team that offers further career development, Warwick learning study vouchers, a generous annual leave allowance and a company pension.

We offer an excellent salary that reflects the challenging nature of the role, and the professionalism we expect from our team. The salary is £27,599.00 to £29,322.00 depending on experience (made up from a base rate of £18,009.00, 5.5 hours of contractual overtime a week and a 25% shift allowance).

This is no ordinary security role; you’ll be a part of our community, working for our community and the successful candidate will be enthusiastic, reliable, and honest at all times.  If you have the skills, experience and personal attributes that would thrive in this role, we want to hear from you.

Closing date: 2nd February 2020.
