There is now an extremely high demand for security officers in the UK. The world has had to adjust to increased threat over the last decade, and the increasing need for security has meant demand in the sector has never been higher. It is definitely a good time to be looking to forge a career in this diverse sector.
Reports show that the number of contract security officers in the UK is now in excess of the number of policeman, and the job opportunities keep increasing. It remains one of those few career choices were after you have completed your licence training, the odds are good that you will find a job relatively quickly.
We realise that many of you who are interested in becoming a security officer are unaware of exactly how to proceed. There are so many disciplines within the industry, just choosing what type of security officer you want to be can be problematic. Then of course there is knowing exactly what steps you must take to achieve the relevant SIA licence.
Also many of you who are already working in the field and have completed your SIA training, may want to receive additional training to further your career. We can help here too. If you do not know what your options are, we can help you decide what additional training is available, and where to get it from.
This is why this website was created – to help guide you in this large and dynamic industry.
What’s Unique About the SIA Licence Hub?
There are a lot of resources available online about how to complete your training and gain your SIA Licence. The most comprehensive being the SIA government website. That is a great resource, however like most government agency websites, it lacks a personal touch and can be quite user-unfriendly. In fact, with many of the available SIA based websites can leave you even more confused than when you arrived.
Our goal is to make this website as streamlined and as easy as possible for you to follow. We want to walk you through the entire process so you can focus on gaining your licence and landing that new security role.
