    sounds too good to be true, who takes the blame and gets sued if something goes wrong

    First you will need to pass the vetting and training which is a minimum 5 days, and then pay for your Security Licence which will cost you £250. Normally when security companies want you to bring along your motorhome their intention is to squeeze extra work from you while you are not being paid, by having you stay on site. The Working Time Directive (WTD) is very clear about what constitutes time-off, remaining on site in your motorhome when expected to respond should something happen is not time off. Should something happen to you whilst on one of these long shifts, the security companies insurers will not cover them or you if they are breaking the law/WTD, so make sure you are well insured.

    I have a friend who works for them you are locked in the compound and your time for work is through the night. Work seems to be mainly weekends.

    only for the company you're working for.

    And they just love folks who are already on a pension, ie, ex service personnel, with the theory that, they don't need a decent wage if they're on a pension. :Angry::Angry::Angry:

    The only mention of pay was they like to keep their earnings below £10,000 a year for tax reasons both of them as a couple do the job.

    I think I would be dubious about calling any company that wants my services but has the cheek to ask me to phone an 0870 number so they can make money out of my enquiry phone call as well as try and exploit me into becoming a security guard for naff all money. Its hardly a paid holiday for a pensioner in their MH and presumably if they need overnight security staff then they feel there is a security risk! Doesnt sound like my idea of a relaxing nights sleep or a MH adventure.

    Yes really good site. I find 0800 numbers a pain now as well. I know they are well intentioned as free phone numbers but they are not free from mobiles or included in your monthly tarrif. Its a good source that site for dialing from abroad as well because 08 number only work when dialled from UK.
