Well presented, hospitality focused, SIA-trained security hosts

At Off to Work we differ in our approach to security - our security hosts are a well-integrated part of a hospitality team, not a separate department.

We have vast experience supporting the world's most celebrated events in 5-star hotels, historical palaces, blue-chip corporates, sports and luxury retail. We are used to supplying highly trained teams in high-risk environments.

Security has a hugely important role to play in delivering a highly enjoyable atmosphere for all to enjoy. This is why our security professionals are trained in line with 5-star hospitality standards.
