The role of a Safety and Security Advisor is varied and no two nights will be the same. You`ll be the person that students come to with queries and questions; you`ll respond to emergencies and escalate them appropriately; you`ll handle complaints and disputes and keep people safe. You`ll be just as likely to be chatting through a student`s worries over a cup of tea or game of pool as you will be patrolling your sites and making sure they are all secure.
What you`ll be doing
- Patrolling multiple buildings to keep our student properties safe and secure
- Providing a warm and friendly service to our students, with a decisive and effective approach to handling any questions they may have
- Acting as the first response to incidents and emergencies, and maintaining the city incident report
What we`re looking for in you
- You`ll be dealing with young people living away from home for the first time, so you will be friendly, approachable, patient, calm in a crisis and a good listener
- We are less concerned about the experience you have and more concerned that you share our values and can relate and connect with the students that live with us
What you`ll get in return
- Regular shifts with guaranteed hours each week
- An annual bonus so you can share in the company`s success
- 25 days` paid holiday
- Pension scheme - based on how much you save, we`ll contribute 1% more
- Shared Parental Leave - 18 weeks full pay
- We`ve earned a Gold award for Investors in People so you`ll be working for an employer who really cares about you and your career
- Other benefits include,ShareSave, Bike to Work, Charity Match, amazing discounts and more!
