Opportunity to join the security team at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games

Posted: 21st Jun

Local jobseekers have the chance to train and work as security officers at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.

The Queensland Government is training an extra 1,000 security officers for the Games, which will have a total security contingent of 4,000 men and women.

More than 30 per cent of the security workforce deployed must reside in either the Gold Coast, Brisbane, Logan, Redland or Ipswich, which means there are great opportunities for locals interested in a career in security.

The new security staff will undergo training to attain a Certificate III in Security Operations and students will be encouraged to obtain two separate industry security licences as an unarmed guard and crowd controller.

This is expected to help them secure long-term employment after the Games, not just on the Gold Coast, but across Queensland where their newly acquired skills can help keep communities safe.

The Commonwealth Games will be held from 4 to 15 April 2018, bringing 6,600 athletes and team officials from 70 nations and territories to Queensland.
