Hello I was wondering if anyone can help me out.
I work for a well known Security provider who provides security staff for a NHS Trust. One of the jobs to do on the weekdays is to go round in a vehicle and collect note boxes and coin boxes from parking machines. This done with an employee from the Trust parking department. I drive the vehicle to each pay machine with the Parking Attendant present. Their job is to replenish the parking machines with empty coin and note boxes, while the Security Officer is to escort the Parking Attendant with the money in the boxes to the vehicle. The vehicle is driven by the Security Officer. Due to the size of the hospital the vehicle leaves site to come back onto site and eventually the money is transported to the onsite cashiers department.

Is a CVIT License applicable?

Matt,

It would depend on the role/responsibility of the "driver / security officer"
It could be argued the role is simply driver, it could also be argued their role is CPO if they are protecting the principal who is collecting or exchanging the cash boxes, as for CViT most likely a requirement

Many thanks for your reply.

Would a Door Supervisor/Security guarding license but sufficient enough to protect the principle and cash?
