Why did you get into the security industry and why Paladin?
I previously worked in construction, offices and with another security company, but felt that none of the roles challenged me enough. I decided to try the Mobile Patrol side of security and haven't looked back since. I chose Paladin because of the company's reputation for quality service, so it was a no brainer for me.
What interests you most about your job?
Every hour, something changes. Working in the field with our Security Officers and Paladin Security Systems clients, every member of our Mobile Department must be flexible, knowledgeable and react well under pressure. We're the highly visible face of Paladin, so our professional client service is of paramount importance to us.
How do you see the industry evolving in the future?
With advancements in technology changing every day, we as security professionals need be ever more resilient and highly trained. The number of CCTV systems and sensors will always increase, but there'll also always be a physical presence needed to respond to the incidents said technology reports.
What advice would you give anyone entering the security industry today?
Those considering a security career need to understand from the get-go that it's not a 9-5 job and the day is not over until our clients' needs are fully met. If you put the time and effort in, and take advantage of our industry-leading training, you can go far.
