Security training solutions for G4S, one of the worlds’ largest employers

Learn how Digits helped G4S simplify their recruitment process.


G4S is the world’s leading international security solutions group, employing a million people worldwide they are one of the largest private employers in the world. They protect rock stars, sports stars, people and property, including some of the world’s most important buildings and events.

With the introduction of stricter licensing controls within the SIA (Security Industry Authority), G4S in the UK approached us for a solution to their need to recruit a large number of stewards and officers for events, such as Wimbledon and various events at The O2.

The system allows new candidates to register their details and perform training and basic assessment, prior to attending the interview process.

“A total of over 2,000 candidates have now registered on the system with more than 60% of candidates passing both parts of the course in the first attempt.”

Another positive outcome from the project is the re-use of the online material in a classroom within other courses. Owing to the modular nature of the course design, it’s easy to re-use generic modules such as ‘fire safety’ across a number of different courses, or, as a ‘refresher’ module in isolation.”

“An extremely professional and dedicated organisation. They were set very aggressive deadlines by G4S, which they were able to meet. Their inter-company communication, openness and honesty was excellent. The solution delivered was exactly as specified. Requirements had been closely followed, but also challenged and improved upon where appropriate.”
