Easy Hiring with Get Licensed Verified SP


Are you struggling to fill your security vacancies? The number of verified security personnel with vetted SIA licences has decreased over the last few years while demand is booming. As a security manager, filling vacancies can be stressful, and you may use job boards to do so more economically. But — when you realise you will not fill your vacancy in time, you have to resort to one or several recruitment agencies that charge much higher prices for temporary staff on their books. 

Did you know some of the top UK firms and organisations use Get Licensed to recruit security personnel? They include:

  • NHS
  • G4S
  • Serco
  • London Underground
  • Compass Group
  • OCS
  • Mitie
  • Interserve 

So why are all these top companies choosing to partner with Get Licensed? Let’s find out why. 

Guardpass App provides a pool of talent

Get Licensed uses a free app for job seekers to use. We introduce our trainees to the Guardpass app during their SIA training course. That way, we know that people are constantly joining the industry on our app. Our job seekers tend to stay with us throughout their careers, which is a primary factor in how Get Licensed succeeds where other job sites fail. The interactive app notifies job seekers when you have posted your job, and you’ll soon find you have a host of applicants for your vacancy in no time. 

Other job boards, such as cv-library, Indeed and Reed, don’t have our expertise in the security industry, and those signing up have little loyalty to them. They may log on infrequently and look for limited security vacancies occasionally, and that’s why it takes so long to get far fewer applicants from these sites. 

Stay compliant 

We fully check applicant licences against the SIA registered database, so that’s one less thing to do. If you use other sites, you’ll have to manually check the licence, which can be time-consuming for each applicant. We will also be launching a fast and automated fully managed BS7858 vetting service shortly. You will be able to order vetting and receive a preliminary vetting in just 48 hours. The service comes with complete quality and compliance assurance. 

Job posts

Job posting is simple with Get Licensed. If you are new to posting jobs, you can get help from your dedicated account manager. You can also see how your competitors post their vacancies, aligning or making yours stand out. It’s also a great way to check out your competition and the salary and benefits they offer. This can help you to fill your vacancy and make it attractive to applicants. Benefits you could be offering include things such as:

  • Annual leave entitlement 
  • Company Pension Scheme
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • Free eye care vouchers
  • Full company uniform provided
  • Unlimited access to our online training platform
  • SIA licence reimbursement scheme
  • Career Progression


The Get Licensed platform is a bespoke security platform. It’s where security people get together. You can set up a company profile page detailing your services and accreditations. If you are running a security firm, you can find out who needs staff if you have them available. It’s a great way to get quotes and grow your business. 

Other great features

You can access many great features on the Get Licensed platform. Like on other job boards, you can search through CVs, except we have the largest pool of security personnel in the UK. You can use chat features to interact with applicants. Our site allows applicants to upload a video profile. This can be a great way to assess if a person will be a good fit for your company than a paper CV. The Get Licensed platform also allows you to book your staff on training courses while receiving discounts. 

Time and money saving

In a mitie case study, Benjamin Goater explained that using the Get Licensed platform was a win-win for saving both time and money. Notifications allow recruiters to know when applicants have responded to a job post. And being able to fill your vacancy from a job platform reliably is far cheaper than relying on labour from an agency. 

Ten free job posts

If you are new to Get Licensed, we offer a fantastic introduction to the platform. You can post your first ten jobs entirely free. That’s worth £1500!
