Axis security has been chosen by investment firm, Daiwa Capital Markets Europe, to provide manned guarding and CCTV monitoring services at its European headquarters based in the heart of London’s financial district.
A recently refurbished, Grade II listed property, the building requires a highly vigilant yet sensitive security presence, with a supportive management system being a vital component of its security provision.
Ian Davidson, executive director, facilities at Daiwa Capital Markets commented:
“Our account manager at Axis Security is professional, accessible and knowledgeable in his field. He understands the appropriate level of support required by the on-site head of security and that when support is needed, it is needed quickly. This is the pattern of involvement that we have seen so far and it works well.”
The contract consists of approximately 500 hours per week, with three supervisors and three security officers guarding the property 24/7, and an additional site manager, assistant site manager and a receptionist during working hours, Monday to Friday.
All eight existing employees were transferred under TUPE.
Chris Wisely, Axis Security’s managing director commented:
“We understand the importance of a smooth transfer of employees, and the benefits package we offer our security officers was seen as a significant benefit in terms of retaining valuable employees.”
