A Snap Shot Of Our Backgrounds

Our Management team has previous careers in the British Army and Royal Air Force.

Commercial experience working for high profile organisations in London.

Expertise at every level from security officer to Directorships with regional, national and international security companies.

Professional & Friendly
In a serious and sometimes frustrating industry its nice to know that we are human.  We have a work hard, clients and staff first ethos to ensure we get the job done.  Outside of work we have our own passions and hobbies but above all we are a friendly bunch of people motivated by working in a great team with fantastic clients.

Just The Job

We think security is easy, people make it difficult, so that’s why we recruit the best talent from within our own business and professional network. We are very different form other security companies, so we have to recruit Managers and Support Officers that share and continually demonstrate the same passion and drive for high standards as the owners of Focused security Services.

From a security officers view point a career with Focused Security Services really does lead to progression, personal development and success.

OUR PROFESSIONALS

David Foster

Managing Director - Co Owner

Career history
My former military career as a Royal Air Force Police Dog Handler has underpinned my corporate career in the security industry from the outset. As with most people leaving the services I found myself in a civilian security role with little intention of doing the jobs for more than a month or so, that was in 1998. The following 17 years could not have been more varied and intense working with amazing companies such as Pinkertons, Trident Safeguard and Channel Four Television.

As my career progress I identified significant industry failings and formed Focused Security Services in order to put front line officers and client first through delivery of a world-class support and service provision. I guess you really cant connect the dots looking forward, its only when you look back you can see things happen for a reason.

Things I like about the security industry
The people in it – amazing, unpredictable and talented
Travel – I go to lots of places throughout the UK and abroad due to work and although it’s exhausting, I love it.
Inspiring people – I am fortunate to have an amazing team around me and I just want to inspire them to become future Industry leaders

Outside work
I am keen Mountain biker
Love spending time with my daughter
May seem odd but I like to pop into sites unexpectedly for a chat with our officers – I think it’s really important to know all my team

Moving Forward
I think Focused Security Services has an amazing opportunity to move forward, but I want to be more than a security company. I want to create career aspirations for the security teams by being an employer of choice with the security industry. I want FSS to really be different and inspirational to other security companies

Favorite food

Charlotte Moyle

Commercial Director

Career History
After pursuing in a career for child psychology I decided this was not for me and ventured on a career change and spent the majority of my early twenties as a Sales Administrator in the Motorcycle industry. It was here that I learnt to appreciate the ‘behind the scenes’ running of a business and took an active interest in finances and HR. Due to the unfortunate business climate I decided to venture into the world of Security as a property inspection scheduler. I was then offered a job as Office Manager with Focused Security Services which enabled me to explore the security industry further. I have been fortunate enough to grow with the Company and expand on my knowledge and experience and look forward to an exciting future ahead.

Things you like about the security industry
No two days are ever the same and meet a diverse range of people.

Things you don’t like about the security industry
Stereotypical views of the industry/ people thinking it is an easy job that requires zero skills.

What do you do outside of work?
I have a love for animals and spend a lot of time tending to my ever growing furry friends. I am a keen badminton player and like to catch up on the latest movies when I get time to relax.

Where would you like to be in 5 years time on a personal and career basis
On a personal level I would like to be on the property ladder (preferably a farm!) Career – Managing/Directing own department and possibly having a few more Industry qualifications under my belt.

Favorite food
Italian – especially Carbonara!

Favorite sport
Badminton

Which famous person past or present would you like to have a beer with?
Johnny Depp – as he has an amazing mind…

Marlon Prince

Operations Manager

Career history
Following a successful ten year career working in bespoke kitchen industry I felt I needed a change and pursued a career in the security industry. I was fortunate enough to obtain a position with Focused Security Services where I started off as a relief officer and progressed quickly to Operations Manager. In this role I can experience both sides of the industry involving the managerial aspect of the job and also first hand experience working on site.

Things I like about the security industry
Working on different assignments.
Meeting new people around the country.
Dealing with different situations that may occur and having a fantastic sense of job satisfaction.

Outside work
I enjoy going to the gym and swimming.
Trips and days out with my children.
Helping out at my grandparents church on a Sunday.

Moving Forward
On a career basis in 5 years’ time I would like to have taken in all knowledge and aspects of the security industry and to be a Director with Focused Security Services.

On a personal level I would like to own my own property and to keep being a responsible role model and parent to my children.

Favorite food
Chinese.

Favorite sport
Football.

I fancy a pint with
My favorite person I would like to have a pint with would be John Barnes even though I probably wouldn’t get a word in edgeways.

As a user of contract security services you may at some point have received extremely poor levels of service. Consequently you may have changed supplier many times only to find the same things go wrong with the contract and you end up having to manage it yourself.

The rationale for for ming Focused security services was due to becoming extremely frustrated working for other security companies who over promise on service delivery and then fail on the basics. To Focused Security Services the basics are a given, attention to detail is paramount and the respect for our security officers is such that we view them assets and not a payroll number.

 

Here are some of our company values

Clients and staff are the priority of our business
We do not employ sales personnel
Security officers are paid on time and accurately
The safety and welfare of our assets is paramount
We provide a best in class service to our customers which is cost efficient and represents true value
We do not over promise on service
We go further than the extra mile for our customers
Seamless service is a given during staff holidays and sickness utilising fully site trained personnel
We will only undertake contracts that we can fully support and work with our clients to achieve common goals
We seek long term partnerships built on mutual trust, transparency of contract performance and effective communication.

 

Understanding the things that are important to you the customer

In the security industry the phrase “Its not rocket science” is common place. Why then does it go wrong so often? We think it’s simply due to that fact that security companies are not Focused, profit comes before service, complacency causes mistakes and management become over worked and spend less time with their staff and customers causing communication to fade into just emails.

At Focused Security Services it all starts with the initial meeting and that is why you the very first person you meet from our company is a Director. We will listen to you and gain a full understanding of your requirements and go on to deliver exactly the service you require and more. Crucially if we cannot support your requirement we will tell you. We are not targeted to build turnover, we are focused on retaining our customers and staff year after year simply by delivering what we promised.

We are extremely proud of the way we operate and would welcome the opportunity to meet with you. Regardless of the status of your current security contract please feel free to contact us and we will meet with you for a coffee and a chat. We know you will be impressed by what we have to offer.  Please Contact us via email or Tel: 0121 706 8045
