Mitie’s Security division has secured a three-year contract to provide security services to the Home Office commencing on 1 April 2020.
It is the latest Crown Commercial Services contract won by Mitie following its appointment to the government’s framework last year.
Both manned guarding and mobile patrol services will be carried out by Mitie at 27 sites across the UK ranging from Dover to Belfast.
The manned guarding service will operate on an intelligence-led model, driven by Mitie’s Global Security Operation Centre (GSOC), based in Northampton. The real-time information generated by the GSOC will guide decisions made by security officers on the ground to mitigate risk across the Home Office’s estate. As part of added vigilance at public facing buildings, Mitie’s Security Officers will also search and scan all visitors, ensuring public and staff safety at all times.
All employees will benefit from pay which will match at least the Real Living Wage, as well as access to a range of Mitie rewards which include staff discounts.
Employees will also benefit from apprenticeship opportunities and a new skills development scheme, which will focus on career progression and managerial and leadership training. As part of both company’s commitment to support local charities, staff transferring over to Mitie under the contract will be encouraged to undertake a day’s paid volunteering with charities chosen by the Home Office.
