Security Officer / Guard Job Description & Person Specification


Regardless of the organization you are applying to work for as a Security Officer, the job description is fairly consistent across the board. Although we strongly recommend reading the job description and person specification for the specific role you are being interviewed for, here are some of the more common attributes that all go to make up the important role of Security Officer / Guard.

ABLE TO REMAIN CALM UNDER PRESSURE

There is no room for panic or ill-thought decisions whilst working as a Security Guard/Officer. At all times you will have to act in a calm and justifiable manner within this role.

WORKING ALONE, UNSUPERVISED

Most Security Officers have to work alone and not as part of a wider team. This means you have to concentrate for long periods of time and show a diligent and professional approach to your work.

COMMUNICATE EFFECTIVELY

Communicating in a way that allows you to carry out your role to the highest standards possible is pivotal to this role. You need to be able to communicate verbally with confidence, resilience and without showing anger or frustration.

EFFECTIVE BODY LANGUAGE

The best Security Officers are able to show professional and composed body language at all times. If you cannot do this, you are portraying weakness within your position. It is vital you follow your training and utilize effective body language with everything you do whilst performing this important, safety critical role.

AN ABILITY TO KEEP UP-TO-DATE WITH SECURITY INDUSTRY-SPECIFIC DEVELOPMENT AND UPDATES

As a Security Officer/Guard, you will need to take the responsibility for keeping up-to-date with relevant law and also any significant developments that occur within the industry. This is more commonly referred to as continuous professional development.

Within the 12 Security Officer/Guard Interview Questions And Answers guide, which is available to download directly on this page, we have included all of the relevant job description and person specification competencies to help you pass your interview with the highest scores possible.

5 TIPS FOR PASSING THE SECURITY OFFICER / SECURITY GUARD INTERVIEW!

TIP #1 – You will be assessed against a number of important competencies during your security officer/guard interview and it is absolutely vital you can answer them with ‘evidence’. The competencies will consist of an ability to remain calm under intense pressure, utilizing analytical and problem solving skills, being able to use effective body language and also being able to defuse difficult situations.

TIP #2 – Whilst you do not need any prior experience of being a Security Officer/Guard, you will need to ensure you have suitable qualifications and have undertaken the relevant training courses that fall under the jurisdiction of the county or region you want to perform this role under.

TIP #3 – Professionalism is absolutely vital in this role and the majority of organizations want to employ Security Officers who have the ability to act with a high degree of integrity whilst also acting as a positive role model for their company. We strongly advise you are able to demonstrate these important qualities during your answers to the interview questions.

TIP #4 – Although most people who attend the Security Officer/Guard interview do not feel this is important, the ability to wear your uniform with pride is actually one of the key assessable areas. Make sure you dress formally and smartly for your interview and show you can act as a positive role model for the company you are being interviewed to work for!

TIP #5 – At the end of your Security Officer/ Security Guard interview, the panel will give you the opportunity to ask them some questions. The question will normally be posed in the following manner:

“Do you have any questions for the panel and is there anything you would like to know more about the role?”

Here are three great questions to ask in your interview:

  1. In respect of the security of your business, what’s the most important thing to you and how could I help you to achieve that within the role of your Security Officer?
  2. Are there any proposed changes to your business over the next few months that I would need to consider when undertaking my duties as your Security Officer?
  3. What are the biggest challenges you have been facing recently in respect of security?
