Distribution Security Officer

The Distribution Security Officer has an important role when it comes to interacting with customers and staff. This is in addition to keeping the assets of the company that you have been assigned to safe and secure. Your range of typical duties will include, in many cases, being the first point of contact for incoming customers. Due to this, you will be expected to be knowledgeable about the various departments of the business that you are assigned to. You can also expect to be the person on the team who typically engages with the people that work at your assignment and who makes sure that visitors follow the right protocol to enter the building. It’s expected that you will always try to look sharp by maintaining your uniform and appearance. Again this is because you will more than likely be the first face that customers see when they enter the building to conduct business. Distribution Security Officers can expect to work at a variety of business places like banks and financial institutions.
