I have worked within the security industry for over 24 years. I started my career in the British Army where I served for 15 years and reached the rank of Sergeant, during this time I was a military instructor teaching Skill at Arms, Rapier/Javelin air defence, Battle field First Aid and Advanced drill.
Once I left the military I worked as a National Training Manager/Consultant with the private and public sectors, I was responsible for all the Government department security training within the Cabinet Office, Home Office, Downing Street and during this time I was seconded as lead Trainer for high level Government departments through the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and worked within this role for seven years.
I currently work as the head of Training for FSG/Interserve responsible for all security and Close Protection training within the company.

First Security is one of UK’s top ten providers of manned guarding. A large reason for this is that our Security Officers are all SIA licensed and trained to the highest levels, but we think more importantly beyond training is the ongoing priority we place on the welfare of our staff. The care of our guards has directly influenced our staff retention rate of 95% and is imperative in the provision of the best security for our clients.

  • Taking time to gain the corporate knowledge necessary for great customer service.
  • A commitment to clients that is unrivalled in the industry, providing a service that is always in the best interest of clients and their people, property and assets.
  • The ability to adapt to the constant changes within the security industry.
  • High levels of client retention.
