As well as lowering costs for your business, an integrated approach using both technology and experienced security officers, allows these officers to be paid the Living Wage. This boosts not just their pay where it is below the Living Wage rewarding them for their hard work and professionalism, but also increases their morale which improves staff retention. This means that you will have the same loyal security officers working for you year after year, a significant benefit to any business. Corps Security is a Living Wage Recognised Service Provider while our Chief Executive Officer Mike Bullock is part of the Living Wage Foundation’s Recognised Service Provider Leadership Group.
As an organisation which has been around for more than a century, we are serious about our duty of care to our people. The Corps of Commissionaires Management was founded in the 1860s to provide employment for former soldiers on their return from the Crimean War. Our people are at the centre of everything we do and every decision we make. Our values of loyalty, integrity and service which were conceived when we were set up are as relevant now as they were then. They are the cornerstones of our ethos as the UK’s most respected and long-established security services company.
As you might expect, we play a key role in the communities we work in and support military charities wherever we can. We are currently working with Combat Stress, the UK’s charity for veterans’ mental health, and The Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association (SSAFA), the UK’s oldest national tri-service military charity.
