A highly experienced Security Officer who is committed to complying to the highest workplace standards in terms of attendance, health and safety, and conduct towards the public. I am more than able to respond effectively to medical situations, and fire emergencies, as well as bomb threats. 

I have a comprehensive working knowledge of all Security Officer orders and duties. I am physically fit enough to be able to walk around for long periods, stoop, kneel, crouch, push, pull and grasp things. In my previous role I was regularly exposed to hot and cold weather conditions, smoke, loud noise, and bright lights.

I would like to join an ambitious company that is looking to recruit someone who has bags of enthusiasm and motivation needed to ensure the highest levels of safety and security.
