A Great Career Opportunity at a "Best in Class" Organization

Uniformed and Armed Security Supervisor



2. Before beginning this process, all potential applicants should be aware that the starting salary range is not negotiable nor are the minimum position requirements. If the starting salary range or the benefit package is not acceptable, then potential applicants should not apply for this position.

3. If any individual does not meet ALL of the minimum position requirements, then they should not apply. The only applicants that will be considered are those who meet all minimum position requirements and follow the application process as is delineated in this announcement.

The Conley Group, Inc., which is a Veteran-owned and Veteran-led business, hereby announces an opening for the position of Security Supervisor at the rank of Sergeant. This is a newly-created, career position and the hiring process will remain open until this position is filled.

We are a 45-year-old, international award-winning professional security services company that provides best-in-class security services. By design, we are not a big-box, traditional guard company that measures its success by the number of guard hours billed per week. Rather, we measure our success by customer satisfaction, security officer retention, profitability and possessing the tactical capabilities to confront and succeed in solving real security threats and risks for our customers. We epitomize the term “quality over quantity.” Our professional security officers do far more than just observe and report. In fact, we operate much like a private law enforcement agency versus a low-wage, poor-quality traditional guard company where no one is proud to work. Our security officers are very proud to be a part of our team of bona fide security professionals.

It is essential that our new Security Supervisor be honest, ethical, highly-intelligent, positive, calm under pressure, tactically-capable, loyal, hardworking, self-starting, and be able to operate successfully in a fast-paced environment. Having a can-do, optimistic attitude at all times is essential. Our Security Supervisor will wear a traditional police-like uniform most days, be armed, and perform wide and diverse duties on a daily basis that range from routine tasks to emergency response. No two days will ever be the same and there is seldom a monotonous day.

Our Security Supervisor will help train, lead and mentor our security officers, help ensure our customers are receiving the superior level of service they have come to expect and ensure all facets of the Security Supervisor’s assignment are functioning effectively and efficiently. Our Security Supervisor will be a direct-report to a Security Manager.

It is our intent to hire a Security Supervisor who is able and wants to be promoted. This means promotion opportunities to a manager and possibly a director’s position. What our company does now in term of service delivery is the future of physical security. Thus, we are most interested in hiring the right individual who is willing to make a long-term commitment and grow with us.

The starting salary for a Security Supervisor is $55,000.00 to a possibly of up to $67,000.00 annually. Additionally, we will provide our Security Supervisor with a generous benefits package that includes 100% paid personal medical insurance. A family insurance policy can be purchased by the employee at our discounted group rate. Dental insurance, life insurance and other benefits will also be provided.

  • Meet or exceed all company qualifications for employment. Those are:
