Working hours are contract dependent, these are subjected to the upper limits of the Organisation of Working Time Act 1997, Shift durations depend on the contractual requirements of the site and as such can vary from one site to the next as the nature of security work means that the hours and shift slots will be variable and there is a need for full staff flexibility, in order to be able to work days, nights and weekends shifts

This is location and customer contractually dependent weather we have one or more security guards on a customer’s site, the service requirements of the customer can require for only one security officer or more as part of a team, larger sites may have more specific operational positions for each team member.
