Career Journey – Carol – From Event Steward to HR Supervisor
Carol's career journey is an inspiring example of how being open to new experiences and building relationships can lead to exciting opportunities.
Carol's journey with the Company commenced as an Event Steward at the Ryder Cup in 2014, where she enjoyed the flexibility of the job, the chance to meet different people, and work in different venues. She had the opportunity to work at music festivals like T in the Park, whilst using her customer service skills to liaise with and support members of the public.
While working in Events, a position became available in SecuriGroup's 24/7 Security Operations Centre. Carol was quickly offered a full-time post in the department, being promoted to Supervisor shortly after this. The customer service skills she developed in events helped her progress in the SOC when working with a variety of people and clients. Her confidence grew massively in this role working in the hub of the Company.
"One of the great things about working at SecuriGroup is the opportunity to move between departments and expand your experience. I took advantage of this and moved to the HR department as HR Assistant, being promoted to Supervisor in 2023. I love working in HR because it allows me to balance work and family life, I found that the company has been very facilitating and supporting of this, particularly during my return to work following maternity leave. My previous experience from events and control room working with so many different people from all walks of life really helped me thrive in the HR department."
