Belfast security company ESS secures contract

Throughout the pandemic, ESS has continued to deliver its operations, providing essential services across some of Northern Ireland’s most vital sectors, landmarks, premises, and projects.

In recent months, the business has seen strong growth in energy, delivering security services to a number of high-profile infrastructural projects including ‘Gas To The West’. The business’ long-standing contracts in sectors including agri-food, banking, and retail have also been bolstered by its offering of on-site monitoring and vacant property management which have come to the fore during the past 12 months.

With new and significant contract wins in late 2020 and early 2021, the company is now seeking to recruit for a number of positions across its business.

ESS Director, David McCullough said: “Our continued growth is testament to the efforts of our committed and resilient workforce. To be able to create a host of high-quality and new jobs at this time speaks volumes about our standing and reputation as security and fire safety service deliverers.

“We would invite applications right across the board from people with experience in the security and fire safety sector. This really is an exciting period for the business and we look forward to welcoming new team members, and continued growth in the months ahead.”

David added: “ESS has been in business for 47 years, with the last 12 months representing a year like no other, for ourselves, wider society, and the local economy. From protecting national infrastructure, supporting the supply of power and energy to homes and businesses, to ‘feeding the nation’, working with a number of NI’s largest food providers, we are proud to have played a key role in keeping the wheels turning locally.”
