This comprehensive training package is conducted at our UK facilities in Herefordshire and full board accommodation or at our Spanish facility in Alicant.

Career opportunities

At the end of each course, suitable delegates are interviewed with a view to potential employment within G4S. Roles that G4S is currently recruiting for include close protection officers in support of our contracts in complex environments overseas and a variety of security roles in the UK.

Our first hand experience of the security industry and the potential for career progression within it, means that we have seen those within close protection roles move into more strategic and advisory roles. Taking account of this, we also offer additional courses and modules in security management, medical and security assessment to enable this career progression.
