As well as reducing costs for your organisation, a blended approach to security using security monitoring to complement security officers, allows officers to be paid in line with the Living Wage, essentially increasing their pay where it is below Living Wage levels. This properly rewards them for their hard work, increases their morale and ensures good staff retention. Corps Security is a Living Wage Recognised Service Provider and our CEO Mike Bullock is a member of the Living Wage Foundation’s Recognised Service Provider Leadership Group.
As an organisation which has been around for 162 years, we take our responsibility to our people very seriously. The Corps of Commissionaires Management, now Corps Security, was initially created to provide employment for ex-servicemen on return from the Crimean War. Our people are at the heart of everything we do. The values of loyalty, integrity and service that were when Corps Security was first founded are as relevant to us today as they were then. They are the cornerstones of our corporate ethos as the UK’s most established and respected security services provider.
We play a key role in the communities we operate in and support 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 UK’s oldest national tri-service military charity.
