Guys

Can one be a Self Employed Key Holder?

I've recently left doing CP/Convoy work after 4 years in Iraq, and am looking around for my best option.

After reading all the info on Key Holding , it does seem a good option IF you can generate the business.

Does anyone know what kind of qualifications or badges I would need to have to go into this type of employment , without working for a registered company but for myself?

Cheers

Robbo

As long as you have an SIA Licence you can work as a Key Holder, Does not matter which one you have as Key Holder is the lowest badge (actually its a letter) you can get.

Most of the other badges allow you to work as a keyholder, and other roles dependant on the badge.

The money is not that great and the hours are long. It might be easier to work for a coy, by the time you pay insurance and get car fitted out with safe etc etc ...

Mate have a look at this www.securityfranchise.co.uk, the bloke graham venn is franchising his company "pattrolguard" the company is likely to acheive aproved contractor status and will cover all franchises basicaly for a franchise fee as always your car gets fitted out with safe, tracker, ect and you offer alarm responce, keyholding and mobile patrols not a bad deal i ahve been to one of the open day. if you like however and do not want to franchise and just want to do it yourself i have quite a good business plan to suite this kind of company

Im not 100% but I think you need a badge for the static guard side of things. i.e. if the house etc has been broken in to you are guarding it till the Police come (best take some food and a chair it could be a while:)
