24 Hour Security Guards, & How to Find The Perfect Sydney Guard

When looking to hire 24 hour security guards that work around the clock, there are a few things that you need to take into consideration.


As a Sydney Commercial Security Company we've been offering 24 hour security for over a decade.


Here are some quick tips on how to hire the perfect security guard for your business.

CONFIRM SECURITY GUARD IS LICENSED

Firstly, if you are attempting to hire a guard privately, you need to make sure that the security guard you are about to hire is licensed.

Check to see the license has no expired, and that isn't a fake.

You also need to consider the 24 hour security role, and what type of personality type is suited towards the position.

​MATCH THE RIGHT GUARD TO THE ROLE

Do you require night shift hotel security staff?

A hospital security guard?

Perhaps you are looking for corporate office security guard to patrol the buildings?


Depending on the role you are trying to fill, you need to find the right security guard that has the right type of mindset, endurance and skills.


Checking to see if the security guard has been in trouble with the  law before and checking with the police should also be a priority.


All these aspects need to go into your interview process.


You need to look for signs and ask the right questions and do thorough background checks.

Below are a few requirements of a NSW security guard:


  • Valid NSW Security Licence (Crowd Control)
  • HLTAID003 Provide First Aid
  • HLTAID002 Provide Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)

Keep in mind that not all guards can remember the first aid training that they received, so don't expect them to be supermen.

If you need them to truly have great medical/first aid experience, ask them in the interview how confident they are with their skills, or perhaps ask them to refresh their skills.

find the right security guard

When we say " 24 hour security guard" we don't literally mean a guard that works 24 hours day, that would be illegal.


You would need a couple of security guards to be able to have a reliable rotating roster of guards at your venue or site.


Anyway, once you have distinguished the type of personality best suited towards the role, it's time to find a security company or to advertise yourself.


When advertising privately, make sure to do background checks and reference checks as well.


You may want these skills in your security guard as well:


  • Current Open C Class drivers licence
  • Excellent oral and written communication
  • Great negotiation and conflict resolution skills
  • Excellent critical thinking and problem solving skills
  • Ability to apply sound emergency response principles
  • Ability to work unsupervised and self-motivated
  • Professional & polished appearance.
  • Personable and friendly
  • Is a night owl


Advantages & Disadvantages of Proprietary Security Staff

Going through a security agency may seem to be a few dollars more expensive, but it saves you time and money in the long run.


A security firm does all the background checks, creates policies that the guard will adhere to on your job site, and takes care of all the tax, payroll and human resource stuff.


Hiring a security company also gives you peace of mind knowing that another security guard will be sent to you if your current security officer gets sick or simply doesn't turn up to work.


If you were to try hire security guards yourself you would encounter some disadvantages.


The hiring process may be challenging, as business owners and management may not be too not familiar with security procedures, and might not know the actual security requirements that they need prospective security personnel.


Proprietary security staff are considered additional employees on the company's payroll. This means additional payroll and tax processes for each additional security guard you employ. 


The firm's human resources department also must compile hiring records, payroll processes and tax information on each security staff member.


I would personally go through a security company as I prefer working with agencies when it comes to business.


Freelancers can sometimes be unpredictable.
