G4S secures major Government site contracts

June 8, 2023


G4S Secure Solutions UK (SSUK) has secured two five-year contracts, starting in October, from the Government Property Agency (GPA).

G4S SSUK will be tasked to provide integrated security and technology services to departmental buildings across 39 sites London and the North.

The contracts involve surveillance and alarm monitoring, visitor management including access control, emergency response, keyholding patrol teams and car park management and voice announcement system operation.

Eddie Hirst, Business Development Director Major Projects for G4S SSUK, said: “G4S SSUK has decades of integrated security experience especially in delivering requirements for customers covering recognisable and sensitive sites all across the country.

“We’re really excited to be able to play our part in supporting the Government’s Levelling Up and Places for Growth agenda by retaining and creating extra jobs in locations around the north of the UK.”

Three hundred staff will be offered the chance to be transferred to G4S.

Hirst added: “Having security officers just standing at building entrances is an outdated model. We know that offering professional development opportunities during work time helps to engage security officers and advances their careers; which we are committed to investing in.”
