Research campaign

10 September 2018

We are conducting research into the private security industry characteristics, working methods and emerging/future trends to guide our approach in the development of our Security Skills and Qualification Review project.
The survey is being undertaken by IFF Research on our behalf. They will be contacting people using the following phone number 02039 615430.
You may receive a call from them asking you to take part in the survey, please be reassured that this is genuine research and we would really value your opinion.
