As well as achieving business security savings costs for your organisation, an integrated approach to your security provision using security monitoring to complement security officers, allows officers to be paid in line with the Living Wage. This essentially increases their pay where it is currently below Living Wage levels. The benefits of paying the Living Wage are numerous. It properly rewards your officers for their hard work; it increases their motivation which ensures good staff retention. It is also the right thing to do. We at Corps Security are a Living Wage Recognised Service Provider while our Chief Executive Officer Mike Bullock is on the Living Wage Foundation’s Recognised Service Provider Leadership Group.
Corps Security was founded more than 162 years ago. As a long-standing organisation, we take our responsibility to our people incredibly seriously. The Corps of Commissionaires Management, now known as Corps Security, was created to provide employment for servicemen returning from the Crimean War in the 1860s. Our people remain at the core of everything we do. The Corps Security values of loyalty, integrity and service that were created when the organisation was first founded are as relevant to us today as they were back in 1860. They are the foundations of our ethos, the way we do things, as the UK’s longest-standing and most respected security services provider.
As you might expect for an organisation with strong links to the military, we play a key role in the communities we work in supporting military charities in particular Combat Stress, the UK’s leading charity for veterans’ mental health, and The Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association (SSAFA), the national tri-service military organisation.
