NTK offer a variety of security services to meet your needs; from CCTV and 24 hour site patrolling to close protection and event management
At NTK we pride ourselves in providing tailor-made security solutions. Whether you represent a public figure, or run a busy retail or entertainment venue, we are able to draw upon our broad team to find the right operatives for your situation.
These days more and more town-centre establishments, even pubs are charging an admission fee, conducting searches or making people queue (unnecessarily) in some cases which can create uncomfortable or close encounters of the heated kind. Combine these two factors with excessive alcohol consumption and you will find your front of house (FOH) area a ‘hot spot’ which needs to be managed well by cool, calm and collected Door Supervisors.
Our Operations Manager’s (Michael Herlihy) experience goes back to 1989 and qualifies him as an expert in this area. We provide competent door staff with the interpersonal skills to treat your customers the way they like to be treated themselves. Polite, proactive front-of-house Door Supervisors are imperative to good first (and last) impressions regarding your venue and its relationship with your customers. Recent feedback from some of our Units and the respective Bar Staff suggests we get the balance right as regards creating a safe place for peace of mind in their workplace.
NTK have never had a member of staff arrested or convicted in conjunction with a violent assault. It is testimony to our peaceful intentions, legal awareness and honestly held beliefs in what are becoming increasingly complex social environments with potential for hostilities. Couple that with drug-related incidents and well-documented high statistics of national knife-crime for example and you must agree that is no mean feat considering the nature of some our work at the sharp end of frontline security.
A competent NTK Security Officer in a smart uniform with an SIA licence on display can be the difference between anti-social behaviour or disruptive activities in a sterile work environment. Whether that’s a FOH position in a Walk-in-Centre, patrolling the floor of a Hotel Reception, a Podiatrist, a Dental area or even a Doctor’s Surgery for example (You’d be surprised!) ; We know from experience that it is money well-spent and produces the desired effect. Often your reception staff need to operate in the tranquillity of a quiet room and can well-do without the disruption and potential confrontation a disgruntled patient, or an awkward customer can make manifest to disturb the peace.
There’s nothing worse than having to deal with a noisy candidate in a quiet waiting room when everyone else is conducting themselves patiently. Its uncomfortable for all there present and especially the poor member of staff who’s usually on their own behind the desk, armed with nothing only the Week-to-View diary and a rather suspect looking plastic biro for protection.
Least ways the very presence of our smart NTK Security Officer can take the heat out of these often uncomfortable situations and offer a little morale support to your member of staff. If push comes to shove, for want of a better metaphor, our guy (or Gal) will do the honours and successfully negotiate the egress of the verbal nuisance from the area, in some cases, from the building.
It takes a certain type of character to do this type of work well and we find polite, professional personnel are just what the Doctor ordered.
Close-Protection (CP) or Body-guarding work is another bag all together. It really is a job for the smart professional …in more ways than one. It’s not for the faint-hearted either. It can mean long periods of waiting and time on your feet. Security NTK CPs meet that mark and can bend and bow to whatever demands are put upon them. In a fast-moving theatre which often dictates little down time, fast car driving and regular jaunts from ‘green rooms’ to red carpets, hotels to nightclubs, shower rooms to soap boxes. We assume the role and roll with the Principal, eat when they eat, we are awake when they are asleep, and we even share their toilets and bathroom visits at times… depending on the nature of the task. Causing embarrassment to the Principal is often the real danger and the height of bad manners in this scenario. So accurate timekeeping is a given. Travel logistics and last-minute.com diversions to avoid paparazzi, political protesters, supernatural stalkers or innocent autograph hunters is commonplace.
Image is everything and sartorial excellence is the norm. There will be times when you need to blend in though albeit with a stand out performance. Jeans, trainers, T shirts and bodywarmers are often the dress code. Discretion is the better part of valour in these roles and always remember… the Principal is the VIP. We leave the whispering into our cufflinks for effect in the last century with Frank Farmer & Rachel Marron (Kevin Costner & Whitney Houston-1992)
Whether it’s a Lord or a Lady, an Ex-Prime Minister, an ‘A’ lister from Aquaman or an ‘F’ lister from I’m a Celebrity or some other modern-day reality TV show, NTK will look after their every need and see it through to ‘Carriages’ and a safe haven for your celebrity testimonial.
Leaving any site empty is understandably a cause for concern. NTK security will provide attentive operatives for whatever your site needs – this can include regular site or perimeter patrols or static guards. Electronic key-fobs record our appearance for accurate invoicing on time & attendance. A Hi-Vis deterrent and some suitable signage is often the difference between an unwelcome visit and an intact compound.
Your valuable plant, your expensive machinery, your containers and your building materials become our priority. Let us look after your sites like they were are own.
If you need someone to look after your site or business premises, we can hold a set of keys and arrange any necessary access – contractors, deliveries etc. We build firm relationships with neighbours in your community which often acts as our ’12th man’ or neighbourhood night-watchman. Our reputation is important to us, so therefore is your trust in us!
