I pride myself on being a strong believer in the ethics and values of the cooperative movement and ensure that these are adopted by the team and are integral in the operation of SRS and the services we offer to clients.

Security Project Manager

I have worked in the Security Industry for 5 years. During this time I have experienced working on the ground as mobile response, static guard and a retail support officer. From this I went on to work as a Security Co-ordinator for the East of England Co-op in which I was responsible for carrying internal and external investigations, looking into the causes of unknown leakage/loss.

I have recently moved into the position of Security Project Manager for Secure Response Services. I am focused on working with clients to tailor our services to their needs, highly motivated and organised. The experience I have within the construction industry assists me in making an informed decision when recommending CCTV/Intruder systems, installation and locations.

I have worked as a Project Manager for many years mostly in Technology and Communications sectors, joining the East of England Co-op over 7 years ago to work within out IT Department. With the creation of our new Secure Response Services brand, I joined to the team to bring my valuable Project Management and ICT experience so we can provide a better service offering to our clients.

Working for Secure Response Services is very rewarding, and my intention is to continue the development of the brand and work with our clients to provide the best Security Services we can, at the best price while using local suppliers in line with the co-operative ethos.
