STAF: A dedicated recruitment and employment programme, deployed by Alpha1, aimed speci cally at providing training, development and employment to ex armed forces personnel and their families.

As a full service security provider we service clients across all sectors within the private security industry and it is our duty to provide our clients with a quality service through the provision of high calibre security personnel. We realise that our employees are our greatest asset and as such we constantly strive to improve their performance levels and therefore the level of quality service we can provide to our clients.

We see huge value in the skillset ex armed forces could provide to our company and believe with the correct training, development and support, these particular personnel could increase quality levels and enhance the reputation of the company.

Having pledged our commitment to the armed forces community we now also deliver a training and recruitment programme dedicated to the employment of ex-forces personnel. This ultimately means our clients receive a service built on a skill-set of the highest calibre. This commitment is behind our decision to support The Gurkha Welfare Trust and the incredible work they do, enabling us to strengthen our vision towards creating a community focused, quality organisation.
