G4S to Hire Over 15,000 Employees Amid COVID-19 Pandemic
The coronavirus outbreak has led to an increased demand for security personnel in many industries, including healthcare and government.
G4S, an integrated security company, announces it will hire more than 15,000 new employees over the next two months as the demand for security personnel increases due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“Given the major shift in business operations, several industries are seeing an increased need for security, and G4S is committed to meeting that need and helping our customers and communities feel as safe as possible during this uncertain time,” said G4S Secure Solutions USA President Drew Levine. “We’re seeking strong candidates who can quickly and efficiently step into these much-needed roles to help protect all customers, employees and the public-at-large in a variety of essential locations including hospitals, government sites and private businesses.”
G4S will be offering permanent, full-time positions with competitive salary and benefits, says the company. Priority hiring markets for G4S include Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Cincinnati, Columbus, Dallas, Detroit, Fort Lauderdale, Houston, Jacksonville, Las Vegas, Miami, Milwaukee, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Nashville, Newark, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Francisco/Sacramento, Seattle, St. Louis, Tampa and West Palm Beach.
Available security officer and site supervisor positions cover a variety of industries, including healthcare, government, finance, technology, commercial and private properties. Not all positions require previous security experience, according to the company, since G4S will provide training and safety programs as part of their onboarding process.
G4S also plans to conduct candidate interviews and employee training virtually, unless otherwise mandated by state licensing and screening requirements.
As recommended by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, the company will provide all employees with the necessary protective gear and training to ensure they are protected against COVID-19. Employees will also be given free access to Doctor on Demand, a telemedicine offering.
