OUR VISION

To serve the UK’s Private Security Industry

ABOUT

Get Licensed is the UK's leading security training and staffing platform.

We help people find the training they need to get licensed and match them with security jobs in their area. We make sure everyone’s fully vetted and we stay on top of regulation updates, so everyone feels safe.

Founded in 2007, we’ve grown from a two-person startup to a 5-star rated company* that’s proud to serve the UK security industry.

Training

We’ve helped over 300,000 people get licensed and find work. Our network of training partners offer virtual and in-person classes in over 85 locations, including all major UK cities and towns. Course dates are flexible and we’re consistently rated 5-star on Trustpilot.

Vetting

We make sure everyone is vetted and ready to start work from day one. And we stay on top of regulations to make sure trainers, employees and employers are fully compliant at all times.

Staffing

We connect qualified, fully vetted professionals with employers looking to fill roles, right now. For staff, our Worker Passport takes the hassle out of job hunting. Get an instant alert when a job matches your profile, apply with a tap, and we’ll add the background checks. We offer bespoke staffing solutions for companies of any size to make sure the right employees and staff meet each other.

OUR MANTRA

Being a people-focussed and charismatic leader means doing the morally right thing in every situation. Even if that means sacrificing a quick win or financial reward. If it can’t be done by The Code, we don’t do it. And if some aspect of our business is wrong, we take responsibility and put it right.

OUR CODE

  1. 1 Use your empathy — Put yourself in other people’s shoes and treat them how you’d like to be treated.
  2. 2 Empower people — Lend a helping hand, share your knowledge, and make people feel valued.
  3. 3 Be agile — Move on great ideas quickly, be flexible and open to change.
  4. 4 Deliver quality — Keep your standards high and aim to do your best for people, every time.
  5. 5 Be committed — Always finish what you start and give it your all.
  6. 6 Act with integrity — Stick to The Code and always be yourself.
