G4S has a turnover of £1.7 billion, making it one of the biggest secure outsourcing company in the UK. The security company works from over 100 offices and is an employer of more than 50,000 employees.
If you want to work in the world of security and events, either as a steward or in a similar role, then G4S should be right up there on your shortlist of potential employers.
G4S Events has worked in this sector for over a quarter of a century, so its experience of providing crowd management services at music gigs, festivals, sports events, conferences and exhibitions is unrivalled.
G4S offers jobs as events stewards, events security and events supervisors - and you could be working at venues all over the country working for the company.
Events Stewards are almost always the first and last people who guests connect with at events secured by G4S. First impressions are paramount, so the impression their events stewards radiate is of utmost importance to the success of the events they work at.
One G4S student recruit describes his experience of working with the security firm as an Event Steward like this:
“I started working when I was at college and now I am at University and as the work is flexible, it fits around my studies. The job is perfect for me and I do every event I can. My job varies from event to event. I can be working at events from football to festivals on exit doors monitoring access, road closures re-routing the public, checking tickets, accreditation and passes or the pit looking for people who need help and monitoring the crowd. Every shift is different.”
Working on the event security side of the G4S business, another colleague, Andrea Harris, offered her career trajectory with the company in this way:
“Originally I wanted to be a prison officer and after viewing the G4S website I came across an advert for Wimbledon, so I contacted my local office and never looked back. The first event I worked was the Grand National – I never did work at Wimbledon. The best part of the job for me is the team that I work with. We have such a great laugh and banter at work, which is not what people think when they think of security.”
“By far my favourite event this year was working backstage at Bon Jovi at Lancashire County Cricket Club as I have loved them since I was 11 and I have been to every concert but this time I got paid to go!”
