The 360 Services Ethos
At 360 Services, we’re committed to providing the highest standard of security and safeguarding for our clients. We can only achieve this with the diligence and responsibilities of our staff across the country. As a nationwide company, our national and localised operations and services must work in tandem. This means the contributions of all our staff, whether they’re in Bradford or Oxfordshire, in a homeless hostel or head office, are crucial for our ability to offer premium services.
Since the first national lockdown caused by the spread of Covid-19 in March 2020, everyone from facility managers to support workers and concierge have faced and adapted to a number of challenges. Their work ethic in the face of change and uncertainty is a testament to their skill and dedication.
We expect our staff to work hard, but we also believe in recognising and rewarding their achievements. The safety of everyone is paramount to our ethos: the vulnerable people in our care, our staff as well as the integrity of facilities and buildings we monitor. More than that, our staff recognise and believe in this ethos too. So, we wanted to talk a bit more about the rewards and challenges that come with working for 360 Services. We’ll also highlight 360 Services’ current vacancies and how you could come work for us.
Don’t Take Our Word For It
People come to work with 360 Services for a number of reasons. Sharon Grey has been a member of 360 Services for the last seven years. She originally owned a hair salon and when she retired that business, she wanted a career change that could keep her proactive and engaged in community work.
She decided to train as a security guard, and has done concierge work for a number of 360 Services’ clients since. This has taken her to St Giles International School, Notting Hill Carnival and a St Mungo’s homeless shelter; she’s particularly proud of her work last year, where she assisted getting homeless people safely into St Mungo’s accommodation during the first wave of Covid-19.
Our Area and Control Room Supervisor Alexandra Carp joined 360 Services after completing her education. For her, the best of part of the job is getting to ‘communicate with each employee, and be able to help them out when they are facing troubles. As Area Supervisor, I do many site visits, so I get to meet most of them in person too.’
Andy Neuvell joined us with experience as a behavioural manager in a mental health facility. For Andy, building relationships with St Mungo’s residents is at the core of his work. His duties include patrols, checking the hostel’s CCTV, assisting the shelter’s staff and much more.
For Andy, his most memorable work moment was deescalating a situation with a vulnerable and potentially dangerous resident. ‘It was a key moment for me. They were able to open up, relax and find a way of coping that didn’t depend upon substance abuse.’
Working in security and safeguarding is a challenging career. Whether you’re overseeing and managing employees across the country, providing security at a festival or working one-on-one with homeless people. Nevertheless, the rewards from the work can be unique and truly fulfilling.
360 Services offers more than security and safeguarding positions. We offer cleaning services, facility maintenance and installation services in London and the South East of England as well as our security services. That means there’s potential for different careers and opportunities. Beyond that, we take on a range of employees from different backgrounds, ages and with a variety of skills and experience.

Recognising & Rewarding Our Team
Because working with 360 Services can be challenging and demanding, we try to provide rewards, opportunities and recognition for our staff as much as we can. With the lifting of restrictions, we hope that staff parties can make a return too!
This summer, we were able to relaunch our Employee Holiday Scheme. This gives our employees the ability to go on affordable holidays abroad with the hope to expand holiday destinations in the future. Currently, we have properties in Croatia and a property in Jamaica available, discounted for staff who have been with us for 1 year or more.
We love to shine the spotlight on any promotions and our Employee of The Month in the monthly newsletter.
