News on Veteran Hiring at Securitas:

More than 6,500 Veterans Hired in 2015

I am pleased to announce that 2015 was another active year for veteran recruitment, with more than 6,500 veterans hired across Securitas' North American operations. By the end of the year, about 15,000 veterans called Securitas home. Military veterans bring important and complementary skill sets to our company. Securitas is committed to hiring them as part of our organizational development. I'd like to thank these former military men and women for their service, first to their country and now to Securitas and our clients. While some may join us and transition to other opportunities, many stay and build careers with us. We're proud to welcome all of them and appreciate their time with us. I look forward to seeing their many contributions and encourage everyone to remember this talented resource as an option for staffing available positions.

Thank you,

Rocco L. DeFelice, CPP 
Executive Vice President, Human Resources

 

Securitas is proud to be a member of the Veteran Jobs Mission

We’ve been a member of this private-sector collation since 2012, formally known as 100,000 Jobs Mission. Their original goal was to hire 100,000 U.S. military veterans by 2020.  Because the collation has far surpassed that goal, they have changed their name and set their goal to collectively hire a total of one million military veterans—with a strong focus on retention and career development of veterans in the private sector.

Career Corner

Larry Williams began working for Burns International in May 1997 as a Field Service  Supervisor. Williams served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1992 – 1997 as a military police corrections  officer at Quantico, VA. His primary responsibility was the health and welfare of the prisoners and detainees at the base. This included prisoner indoctrination (confinement and release), moni-toring prisoner work duties, riot control and con-trol room supervision. Awards and recognition received include the National Defense Medal, Good Conduct Medal, Navy Achievement Med-al, Sharp Shooter Ribbon and four time winner of the Superior Physical Fitness Award.

“The things that most prepared me for my career today would have to be teamwork and how to operate under pressure. You learn both in the Marines, from the time you step off of the bus at the MCRD (Marine Corps Recruit Depot),” explained Williams when asked about how his military experience relates to what he is doing today. “I believe that military veterans have a lot to offer prospective employers. Most veterans are critical thinkers, digest information quickly nd can adopt our core values.”
