Warrior Security (South Sudan) today re-affirmed its commitment to absorb all UNMISS guards that choose to apply for employment with the company and encouraged the former guards to utilize ongoing recruitment process.
“We have close to 1000 positions at different sites that we need to fill over the next one year,’ said Tony Sugden, CEO Warrior Security (South Sudan). “This opportunity is open to all existing UNMISS guards.”
The security company currently employs 2100 guards and projects that there will be up to 4000 South Sudanese citizens employed by July 2014.
“Warrior has been working with UNMISS, to circulate letters of invitation and application forms however, very few have chosen to come across so far,” said Glenn Corey, Communications Manager at Warrior Security (South Sudan).
“This is an ongoing, open, process. We encourage guards that are interested to fill in the application forms so files can be opened for them to secure employment,” added Mr. Sugden.
“There are additional advantages in working for Warrior Security (South Sudan) as opposed to being an independent contractor, such as medical coverage and permanent employment, neither of which were included in the contracts for independent contractors under previous arrangements.” said Mr. Corey.
The recruitment drive currently under way is in line with the Warrior Security (South Sudan) company policy requiring all guards and supervisors to be South Sudanese to secure employment with Warrior Security (South Sudan).
“In every country that we work in, local residents come first in line whenever a job opportunity arises,” said Mr. Sugden.
“We understand that this may be a worrying time for former independent contractors, but we want to assure them that the vast majority of them will still have jobs, and that in moving to Warrior Security (South Sudan) they will always be respected and well looked after,” said Mr. Corey.
