We’ve had a quite few questions about security temp positions since my last blog post, so I thought I’d take this opportunity to answer some of the more common ones for you.
Why would I need temporary security staff?
There are a lot of situations where temporary security staff could come in handy. Sometimes employers who regularly use security staff might need extra hands for bigger events.
Other times, places that don’t normally use security staff might need them. At David Alan, we will staff anything from an outdoor picnic to large sporting or social events.
And, of course, we will provide cover if your regular security staff are unavailable to work.
How does David Alan screen their security staff?
First, we take a comprehensive job spec, which we use to advertise the role. From our applicants, we choose a shortlist to be invited in for interviews.
All pretty standard so far, but here’s the David Alan twist: We capture the interviews on film, and send the video clip along with their CVs to the candidate. This allows them to see the candidate’s unique personalities and make an informed decision about who they’d like to interview.
Do David Alan security staff come with uniforms or equipment?
If uniforms or equipment are required, they are supplied by the client so they can meet their specific specifications.
