UK Manned Guarding Contracts
The UK remains a huge hub for manned guarding procurement, and it is a market available to all suppliers from around the world.
The UK is facing considerable security challenges in the present landscape. The UK national threat level (in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland) is currently ‘substantial’, which means a terrorist attack is likely. Organisations need to maintain vigilance by implementing appropriate safety and security measures where possible, which is why the role that defence procurement plays is crucial to future developments in this area.
The concerns around terrorism and cyber attacks are the key drivers for market growth. In 2018, the UK manned guarding market maintained value growth, rising 2.2% despite some difficult trading conditions, primarily due to Brexit uncertainty. However, the market is forecast to maintain growth over the next five years as the UK establishes its position outside Europe and sets further security strategies.

What types of manned guarding contracts can my organisation find?
Manned security guards
One of the most popular types of security tenders, manned security guarding is commonly used by commercial clients and private customers. Manned guarding entails having security offers on hand to protect a property, premises or event from intruders. They also deal with loss prevention and provide protection against assault or violence, making decisions quick decisions during any incident in a way that electronic security cannot.
Any organisation around the world can require manned security guarding at any time, making it an attractive market for new and existing defence suppliers.
Traffic marshals and car park security
Officers are utilised to ensure the safe movement of vehicles around a site, allowing for constant smooth movement and reducing the risk of accidents. Traffic marshals and car park security are a popular option for large event venues, including corporate events and tourist attractions, to add an emotional human response to security measures. Car park security can also prevent theft and damage to vehicles through the use of static guarding, mobile patrols, CCTV monitoring and controlled access. Combining the use of traffic marshals with electronic security produces the safest results.
Similar to manned guarding, officers will patrol a commercial or private property in a security vehicle at specific times of day. This is a particularly effective method of security in larger locations and open spaces, where it is difficult to cover ground. Mobile patrols can dissuade thieves from breaking into or vandalising property, particularly as the appearance of a security vehicle is often unexpected.
