Ministry of Defence Guard Service
The Ministry of Defence Guard Service (MGS) is a professionally qualified body of civil servants who provide unarmed guarding services at over 100 MOD sites across Great Britain. The MGS has guarded the Defence Estate for over 25 years including high profile locations such as MOD Main Building in London and Her Majesty’s Naval Bases at Portsmouth, Devonport and the Clyde. The MGS plays a vital role supporting the Defence Mission and works closely with its security partners.
The MGS employs over 2,000 operational and support staff. We offer a broad range of interesting and challenging jobs, with a variety of working patterns, contributing directly to the UK’s Defence Mission.
MGS officers are very often the first point of contact with the MOD for employees, visitors and contractors and we pride ourselves on a customer-focused culture, in line with the MGS core values of honesty, integrity, professionalism and efficiency.
We are passionate about the services we deliver and work hard to keep pace with developments in the security industry, as we seek to be the unarmed guarding provider of choice.
Our operational staff are fully trained to carry out a range of services including:
- access control
- control room and CCTV management
- incident Control
- security event coordination
- dog sections
To achieve our goals, we need dedicated highly motivated people who are able to adapt to meet the complex range of threats and challenges in a rapidly changing world.
We recruit security officers and managers, admin support staff; programme and project managers and training and communications staff. Successful applicants will have strong communication and interpersonal skills and work well in a team, with drive and initiative.
MGS staff are broader banded civil servants and as such have many opportunities to develop and progress both within MOD and across the wider Civil Service.
