Security Work is Healthy Work

The office grind of being tied to a desk from 9-5 isn’t to everyone’s tastes. Working as a security guard often means getting out into the community, walking on patrol and providing assistance when and where it’s needed. Just 30 minutes of walking per day has been proven to improve fitness, lower blood pressure, lower risk of heart disease and diabetes, and even improve your overall mood.

Career Progression

At Blackbird Security, we take an active interest in helping our team members to grow their career. Whether you view your career inside, or outside, of our organization, we are dedicated to mentoring you towards your career goals. This process begins with our industry leading Blackbird Academy training program, where guards receive diverse and comprehensive security training. Our aim is to equip each graduate with a well-rounded skillset and empower them to respond to any scenario with confidence. Alongside our policy of promoting from within, many of our alumni have progressed to enrolling in the RCMP, local police, or a career in corrections.

Serve Your Community

Whenever possible, we hire locally based guards to service their communities. The accumulated knowledge they possess is invaluable, and it allows them to serve their communities in incredibly rewarding ways. We love hearing about the helpful interactions our guards have with members of their local community, and seeing the satisfaction they receive from being able to help. Whether it’s helping to make their community safer, caring for an injured individual, or helping at-risk members of our communities – it’s all in a day’s work for a Blackbird Security guard.

Work/Life Balance

You’ve likely heard the old cliché that crime doesn’t sleep – but that doesn’t mean security guards are expected to be on call 24/7. Blackbird Security’s wide range of professional security services means we have roles available in diverse industries with diverse schedules. Our team members appreciate the flexibility this affords them. For example, positions on our concierge security team will often have defined work hours that suit individuals needing to know their schedule well in advance. Conversely, our mobile patrol security team can take irregular hours if it works for them. We understand how important it is for our team members to be happy at work, while also having the free time to enjoy life.
