Working At Central Guards
A career at Central Guards is like no other. Not only is it rewarding and unique, but the variety here is like nowhere else. Depending on your job, upon joining you will find yourself either classed as a specialist or a generalist and belong to a specific capability area. Staff are given significant autonomy to manage their own careers and typically move jobs every two to three years with the option to move across areas. Therefore it is not unusual for someone to have worked in counter-terrorism, recruitment, counter-espionage and corporate communications in the first few years of their career.

Due to the nature of what we do, a common misconception is that there is no work-life balance at Central guards. It is true that there may occasionally be times when you need to work longer hours than usual, such as the busy points of an investigation. But it’s also true that you’re not able to take your work home with you, so when you leave the office you really are leaving your work behind you.
