VIP Protection – Not so easy to break into

VIP Protection – Not so easy to break into

Many security guards dream of protecting the rich and famous, proving they can cut it in the most high risk environments, but it’s only a select few who make it this far. So why is it so tricky to break into?

It’s who you know

You hear this in most industries and it’s often the same story here. If you’ve proved yourself as a valuable security guard for a person or business who’s connected to famous people, you may find a path leading to your dream role. That route will require a lot of luck along the way though.

It’s tough

VIP protection can take you away from your family for months at a time, possibly putting strain on your relationships, so only those tough enough can truly make it.

Roles are hard to find

The term ‘VIP protection’ attracts interest when used on job sites, so not many people who require these services will advertise the role under that name, they may also not class themselves as a VIP even if they are. You have to be quite lucky to find a job this way and that’s why most people find these jobs through their own connections.
