TOP 10 REASONS TO JOIN PALADIN

The best employment & career development opportunities in the security industry.

Paladin Security is committed to offering the best employment and career development opportunities in the security industry because we want the very best and brightest people our industry has to offer. We go to extremes that are unheard of within other companies to ensure that our people feel rewarded and satisfied with their role in Paladin. The following are just some of the reasons why we have been selected as the ‘Employer of Choice’ in the security industry.


Superior Pay Rates

Paladin Security is one of the highest paying companies in the security industry and we believe our people are worth it.


Comprehensive Employee Benefit Programs

Among other things, we offer a comprehensive benefit plan to our staff that includes dental insurance, extended healthcare coverage, and life insurance.


Extensive Company Paid Training

As a company that is committed to delivering the highest level of training and education in the industry, Paladin provides over 50 safety and security related courses to our staff in order to encourage their development and advancement within our company.


Promotion From Within

Our belief in promoting from within, coupled with our strong record of growth, has provided countless opportunities for our members to grow within our company. With our extensive training programs and impressive growth, members of Paladin can easily develop a successful career path within our company.


Site Variability & Compatibility

As one of the largest full service security companies in Canada, we have an extensive variety of challenging assignments and positions within our company. We work with our people to accommodate their interests so that they enjoy their assignment and feel challenged by their work.


Accommodating Shift Schedules

A career at Paladin does not have to mean sacrificing all of your spare time and compromising your life’s schedule. Whether you are looking for full-time or part-time work, we will work with you to find a shift schedule and a location that works for you.


Company Paid Licensing & Uniforms

Most security companies charge their employees for the training that they provide them with, and make them pay for their own security licenses. Additionally, they also make them pay for uniform deposits. Paladin Security is different. We pay all the up-front and ongoing costs for your security license, your uniform, and your training.


Employee Care Coordinator

Many companies in our industry talk about their commitment to their people, but few demonstrate their commitment through their actions. To ensure that our staff members are supported and valued, we have created a senior position in each branch called the Employee Care Coordinator.

The Employee Care Coordinator is responsible for putting together programs and systems that increase the overall satisfaction of our large and varied workforce. Among other things, the ECC is also responsible for developing and administering reward and incentive programs, organizing company parties, and resolving general employee problems if and when they occur.


Reward & Recognition Programs

Paladin Security leads the security industry in reward, recognition, and incentive programs for our people. Each branch has Performer of the Month Awards, daily Field Manager's Choice Awards, and weekly Client Service Manager Choice Awards to recognize and thank our people for doing such wonderful work. These are monetary rewards and all winners and runners-up are also mentioned in our monthly newsletter, The Paladin Pipeline.


Open Communication & Feedback Mechanisms

Paladin listens closely to our people. Not only do we hold regularly scheduled site meetings, site supervisor meetings and management meetings, but we also conduct extensive employee surveys at least once a year. The ‘Paladin Report Card’ solicits advice and suggestions from our staff on how we can improve the delivery of our services – both internal services, such as administering our benefits plan, and external services, such as providing security to a site.

We are a company that believes in constant and never ending improvement and the motivation for change comes from both our clients and our people. This is the foundation upon which Paladin was built and one of the reasons why our company has grown so fast.

WHY SECURITY

Why choose a career in security?

Are you looking to start your career in security but not sure if it's right for you? Are you looking to enhance your personal and professional development in a positive environment, where your employer recognizes your talent and supports your growth?


Are you looking for an exciting and rewarding career?

In 2010, the security industry grew to over 200 billion dollars per year, up from the 100 billion dollars it did in 2005. The truth is, we are in one of the fastest growing and most exciting industries in the world!

Paladin Security is a leader in the security industry. Our company is growing more than three times as fast as the security industry and we always try to promote from within. We take pride in developing our own people into successful supervisors, managers and executives. Invest in yourself and take advantage of what Paladin can do for you and your career.


Are you looking for a career in policing?

Policing is a challenging career and one that has a long and difficult application process to get through. Many don’t make it and many more get deferred to gain some necessary “life experience.” A job in security working at an active location can provide you with just the type of experience the police recruiting officer is looking for.


Are you are a student?

Being a student is tough and it is expensive. Tuition, books, housing, food, and transportation are expensive realities of everyday life for most students. A part-time job in security might be the perfect solution. Many positions at quiet sites require a security officer to remain alert and monitor alarms or control access. These positions quite often allow a student some time to read and study.


Are you are semi-retired?

After a productive working life, many people find that retirement does not provide them with the sense of fulfillment that they were looking for. The security industry can be the perfect place to look for that part-time job that has the hours and flexibility that will suit you and your life situation.
