Certis Security Australia has commenced its Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) to better strengthen relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. More than a word, reconciliation takes action, which is why we feel the Reconciliation Action Plan is so important.
As seen through our work with Corroboree Certis, maintaining strong relationships with indigenous communities has long been a focus for Certis Security Australia—the RAP further emphasises this.
The RAP framework and Corroboree Certis collaboration is helping create a more just, equitable and reconciled workplace that we hope other organisations across Australia will emulate. Find out more about our RAP here.
Certis Security Australia is a proud and long-standing supporter of Corroboree Services Group, an Australian Supply Nation certified Organisation with over 40 years’ experience working with Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander communities.
Through Corroboree Certis, our partnership makes job opportunities within the security sector more accessible for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islanders communities, and also meets the guidelines of the Indigenous Procurement Policy, including Certis assisting the capacity of Corroboree Group to grow through sharing of services and resources.
Corroboree and Certis Security Australia are dedicated to ensuring sustainable change for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people.
A new initiative is underway in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) to recruit from grass roots and focus on Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander youth to provide a career pathway into the security industry, starting in the role of customer service officers.
The initiative was a proactive response to the challenges Corroboree Certis have faced in their efforts to recruit Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander workers as only 5,000 people identify as Aboriginal and /or Torres Strait islander in the ACT. An initial team building activity was conducted for this group early in 2020 to focus on the shared values of supporting each other and achieving as a team.
Our mobile patrol officers are an effective way to make healthcare organisations’ employees and visitors feel safe and secure. Our personnel patrol clients’ premises at regular intervals ensuring everything is in order and there are no disturbances. In the event of a disturbance,security officers are trained to manage them quickly and effectively.
Our concierge services are all about generating positive first impressions and providing a central source for security management. Our personnel ensure that from the moment visitors enter our clients’ premises, they’re welcome and safe as well as have someone to speak to should they need assistance.
Our security officers are trained to work with various technologies in order to meet the security needs of our clients. Static security guards provide onsite services (for when you need more than mobile patrol units) and are carefully selected based on their level of experience, professionalism, aptitude and skill as we ensure they possess the ability to effectively manage situations of all kinds.
