About the roles

Concierge Security Officers

Concierge Security Officers meet and greet staff, visitors and customers and create a positive first impression.  They verify ID, issue access and credentials for staff, visitors and contractors, conduct patrols of the building to identify security risks and technical security faults, monitor and assist with security enquiries, report incidents and faults to the Security Operations Centre, maintain and monitor alarms, registers and CCTV, and act as Emergency Wardens as part of the Emergency Control team.

Control Room Operators

Control Room Operators are based in Security Operations Centres where they provide control room monitoring and responses, and security helpdesk support.  As the role involves liaising with staff at all levels regarding security matters, communication is key.  They respond to remote incidents and emergency calls to Triple Zero and Police, book and dispatch security services such as guards, roving patrol teams and technicians, and assist with onsite contractors.  They also log incident reports in databases and monitor CCTV, alarms and building management systems.

Control Room Team Leaders

Control Room Team Leaders provide support with training and guidance with incoming calls.  In addition to undertaking Control Room duties, they also support the management team with reports and productivity monitoring.

Control Room and Security Supervisors

Supervisors of Control Room and Security staff lead and mentor less experienced staff, review procedures and systems to identify continuous improvement opportunities, and escalate and support with incidents and operational matters.  They prepare daily quality assurance reports on service levels, assign tasks to staff, and liaise between G4S and Security Operation Centres regarding day-to-day administration and non-operational matters.
