While we are always willing to use the experience of the past, we successfully combine it with the needs of the present to give an unrivalled level of service that always delivers satisfaction and value for money. It’s why our customers stay with us and our employees are proud to work for us.
- Our role as security specialists
Security is quite unlike any other service that companies have to procure and there is significant peace of mind to be gained from knowing that a trained and qualified security specialist is on hand to deal with any situation. That’s why we specialise in three key areas of security: guarding, monitoring and consultancy.
Everyone matters to Corps Security and we know that the service we provide is only as good as our people. By continually investing in our employees we ensure that that they are given the requisite knowledge and skills to enhance their careers and provide unrivalled levels of service. This ‘circle of care’ is one of the reasons why we enjoy the best levels of staff retention in the industry.
Unlike other security companies, which are driven purely by the need to generate profit for shareholders, Corps Security is a Trust. As such, we are able to take a long-term view of our business and ensure that any added value that we generate is reinvested into our operation to better serve our customers.
Corps Security has a unique history. Captain Sir Edward Walter founded the Corps of Commissionaires in 1859 and with the motto of ‘loyalty, integrity, service’ we were able to provide gainful employment for ex-servicemen on return from the Crimean War. The head of the company has been the British monarch since King Edward VII in 1901 and in 2009 we celebrated our 150th anniversary with a reception hosted at St James’s Palace by HM Queen Elizabeth II and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh.
The secret to our longevity is our ability to move with the times and pioneer new ways of providing security services. Our attitude towards embracing the very latest, best-in-class technology is exemplified in the state-of-the art Corps Monitoring Centre (CMC) which is widely acknowledged as the leading facility of its kind in the UK.
