Whether you are looking for a first step on the ladder or considering a new challenge we would love to hear from you.
Speculative CV’s can also be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org however, due to the volume of enquires we receive they may not be replied to immediately or until a suitable vacancy arises.

FOR OUR CURRENT VACANCIES ON OUR JOB BOARD
My team started with Unitrust in August 2021 and right from the start we felt like we had joined a forward-thinking company. There have been a number of challenges during this period but I have always felt that the company is able to provide the right kind of support and resources to meet these challenges head on.
It's particularly impressive to see Unitrust management take an interest in their employees and look to develop people and advance their careers, as this is not always the case at other security companies.
I look forward to a long, happy, productive relationship with the company.
Damian Conrad, Security Manager

• More than 6,500 CPD hours logged this year (15h per employee)

• Classroom courses for line management eg HR
• Onsite ‘toolbox talks’ by Site Managers

We make sure that everyone on our team is clear on how to improve and progress, with regular appraisals and assessments of their Personal Development Plans. Wherever possible it is our goal to promote from within and we have many examples of this in our business. Our belief is that additional skills, benefit both our team and our clients and help us retain our vision of always providing the highest standards of security.
