During a job interview, one of the common questions asked of a job applicant is “why do you want to work here?” The answers you receive will often impact your hiring decisions. But have you ever stopped and considered this question from the candidate’s angle – ‘’Why do people want to work for your company?’’


Why people want to work for churchill security

Here at Churchill, we believe we are laying a solid foundation to be a company everyone wants to work for. From the top down we strive to understand what our employees want and how we can continue to provide a working environment that is not only productive and profitable but considerate of the wellbeing and fulfilment of our employees. We believe having a supportive and collaborative culture that appeals to our employees’ sense of purpose is paramount in building a strong business.


‘Good Company Culture Increases Revenue by 4X’


In a major long-term study Forbes found, companies who had the best corporate cultures, encouraged all-around leadership initiatives and highly appreciated their employees, their customers and owners grew in revenue by 682% whilst companies without a thriving company culture grew in revenue by only 166 % – a staggering difference.


Our virtues and company culture stand behind everything we do and reinforce that supportive vision, offering existing and potential employees an insight into the way we think and operate.


‘For me it’s simple. Our virtues represent the behaviours of our people within the organisation. The heart and soul of each individual is put into the business in order to make it a success. Our virtues define who we are – humility, passion and people first. With these behaviours executed consistently, I know that collectively we make Churchill a great place to be part of and the partner of choice for our clients.’ John Melling – Director


What are the reasons people want to work for a business? Money, of course, is a driving force, but it’s not always the defining factor in someone’s decision to apply or accept a job. Engagement, flexibility and culture now play a major role in potential employee decisions.


‘Employee engagement increases productivity in the workplace. Engaged employees outperform their peers that are not engaged. Overall, companies with high employee engagement are 21% more profitable.’ smarp.com


Having a workforce that is engaged and shares your company vision benefits all stakeholders. We believe our employee engagement shows through, but don’t take our word for it, see what some of our team have to say.

There are numerous reasons employees will endorse your company but generally, the common thread is that of engagement, wellbeing and fulfilment, not remuneration. In order to maintain and attract the best employees you need to constantly ask the question – why do people want to work for my company? It’s at the heart of any successful company in today’s business environment.

Our success over the years is a product of our never-ending pursuit of excellence in all areas. We believe that if we take care of our customers, local communities and employees, we can achieve great things.

We strive to create an amazing work environment where our employees get the chance to make a difference by helping those around them live happier lives. Here’s why we believe Churchill Security is a great place to work.


Real Virtues

From “Humility” to “People First” and everything in between, our virtues aren’t just words. They are responsible for shaping an atmosphere where employees love coming to work every day. As our Director John Melling says, “Our Core Virtues are our long-term differentiators, our mission and our purpose.“


Our Commitment To Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity and inclusion aren’t just a “nice to have” at Churchill Security, it’s part of what we do every day. Engagement and inclusion go hand in hand with our views on diversity.

We are one, but we are many and we are building a company together based on the knowledge, determination and differences from all. Our protection is not just physical security but encompasses an overall approach from wellbeing to support and assessment no matter who you are.


Strong Career & Development Opportunities

We understand that we are only as good as our people, that’s why we constantly invest in them. Whether it’s on-the-job training, mentoring or formal training, our employees are encouraged to actively learn every day – and are rewarded for doing so.


Supportive Leadership

The Churchill leadership team truly believe that building an even stronger company relies on an engaging and supportive culture.

‘Our Purpose and Virtues are powerful yet simple, its what our teams deliver every day and are constantly at the forefront of what we all do. These are not simply words that look good on a marketing piece they genuinely are what we demonstrate and believe. I have never worked with a team that epitomizes a culture in such a powerful way that the people at Churchill do, it’s an exciting time.’ Andy Farley – Operations Director


Our People

Our people are what make us great as a company, without them we know we wouldn’t be in the position we are today as one of the leading Security firms in the UK. They are the reason we strive to become bigger and better all the time while not losing sight of what matters most, our employees. We are their biggest fans and we know that they actively encourage others to join our team.

Our people and culture are the reason others want to work for our company.
