UK Home Office Security Contract

Front-of-House/Security, Contract Awards, Public Sector, EMEA, Service Provider News, United Kingdom

Mitie has been awarded a contract under the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) framework to provide manned guarding and mobile patrol services at 27 Home Office sites.


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.


This latest partnership builds on existing high-profile contracts between Mitie and the Home Office. By expanding its relationship with the Home Office, Mitie will further increase its presence and support within the government sector. 


Jason Towse, Mitie's managing director for Business Services, says:

"It’s a privilege to be supporting the Home Office and use our expertise and marketing-leading technology to keep its people and buildings safe across the UK. We look forward to welcoming our new team members to Mitie and supporting them with excellent career development opportunities."
