Four student trainees from Norway are spending time at the Securitas Security Operating Centre in Milton Keynes, in the first Erasmus exchange within the global security provider.
“This is the first time Securitas UK is taking part in the Erasmus programme”, said Mark Barber, Securitas Academy and Qualification Design Manager. “Since our Training and Development Academy in Milton Keynes was awarded Centre status by City & Guilds in 2015, we’ve been providing development and skills training to our UK employees. Offering an international knowledge exchange is now a natural step up for us”.
Lasse Isaksen, Caroline Pettersen, Marius Bremtun and Markus Andersen, aged 19 and 20, have been working for Securitas Norway as student trainees for the last two years. They will spend a month in various Securitas locations across the UK. In their first week the students will learn about the business strategy and priorities for the UK and understand what it’s like to work in a global organisation – supporting the objectives of the Erasmus Programme.
The overall programme the students will take part in will focus on all six Securitas Protective Services: on-site security, mobile, remote and electronic security as well as corporate risk management and Fire & Safety.
