A big event that brings many job openings and career opportunities for many professionals in security industry. Maybe the only event in the world that can combine visitors from show business, politicians, businessmen, royal families and what we use to say all the VIPs.
Mostly of them (if not all of them) will be in need for close protection services and security escorts, even those who will be traveling with their own security teams will need to hire someone local, so if you are looking for a job, or sending CVs to different companies maybe you should need to start thinking how you will break into this big social and athletic event.
Being aware and on time informed for athletic, fashion, movie openings, awards events etc is a must in our work. Sometimes you need to ”chase” job opportunities and apply for. Unfortunately only those who advertise and spend a lot of money in advertising are well known and their phone will ring first, so when people don’t know you exist make the first step and make yourself and your services known to them.
For an event like London Olympics, first of all you must be willing to travel and work abroad, not many female close protection operatives are willing to do that.
Secondly you need to start and make a research on UK based security companies that provides close protection services. Make a contact with them, send your resume and make them know you are able to work with them. Of course you wont receive an answer from all of them, but you must know that during an event like the Olympic Games there will be a huge need for specific professionals, so why not giving your self a step ahead?
