We have a large mutli-site campus and as such our security team provide a front line service in maintaining standards and upholding security arrangements at all times of the day and night. As a Security Officer, you will be a friendly contact point for the thousands of students, staff and visitors that come to our beautiful, 67 acre campus, 25 minutes from London Waterloo.

Your ability to communicate with people at all levels will be well used. No two shifts are the same and whilst the work can be challenging and rewarding, this is a great job for those who enjoy helping others.
