When we wish to hire a security operative(s), we first announce that there is a vacant job position(s). This way, interested candidates will be aware. We then ensure a strong advertisement campaign is launched in order to draw the interest of as many skilled operators as we can. If required, we advertise the position using both offline and online methods – newspaper adverts, radio and TV, social media, online job boards, discussion forums, etc.
All interested candidates are then instructed to converge at a specified location, normally one of our global offices, on a specified date. The application process involves completion of applicant forms as well as a test to assess applicants’ ability to understand and write in English or any other required languages, if requested.
Depending on the employer’s choice, the test phase may include assessments of applicants’ knowledge required to assess and verify their qualifications and ability to take up the job position.
Before proceeding with the next procedures, we carry out various background checks to verify the qualifications as well as criminal records of applicants. Since no one wants to hire an ex-convict as a security operative, to double check all claims at an early stage in the recruitment process is only a smart move that we acknowledge must be done.
We contact the candidates local police and the institutions to verify academic credentials. If any applicant is found to have tendered false or misleading information about their qualifications and past, such applications are weeded off immediately.
After the above-mentioned stages, applicants are interviewed extensively by either in house staff or third parties delegated to handle the process. The interview is aimed at testing the confidence and communication skills as well as other qualities such as their ability to speak and write in English if it is in the interest to the employer.
During the interview, applicants are asked important questions that will help the interviewers make the right choice. Answers given by the applicants during the interview are used to assess various qualities, such as integrity, selflessness, professionalism, respect for others and loyalty.
After the interview phase, one or more applicants will have been short listed. These applicants will then be requested to submit the results of specified medical tests, such as drug and alcohol screening, urinalysis, blood analysis, etc. Our MSO’s are either require to attend an ENG1 Seafarers Medical or a Danish Seafarers Medical.
A medical check is necessary, as it reveals whether or not an applicant is healthy and fit enough to take up the respected job position, which could be physically and mentally demanding.
If required, Elite International offer a wide variety of internationally recognised and accredited security style training packages as stated within our “Security Training” page of the website. These vary from our prestigious Elite Guard package to Static Guard, Door Supervisor, CCTV, Close Protection, Firearms and Maritime Security Officers.
Using the results of the screening test, medical checks, and background investigation, Elite International choose one or more (depending on number of available slots) successful applicants for the position. After the selection, successful applicants are contacted and given further instructions on what to do next.
