Protective Services Manager, Executive Protection and Event Security

Employer: Google
Location: London, GB

Job description

From keeping Googler’s safe and secure to managing disruptive events, the ability to anticipate, deter, detect, and act are the pillars of Google’s Global Security and Resiliency Services (GSRS) team. As a member of GSRS you will help develop a culture where safety, security and resiliency are integrated into every facet of Google, including the creative process. You will help us continually identify, evaluate and monitor enterprise risks that could affect business activities and provide business leaders the information they need to make critical decisions. You'll collaborate with cross-functional teams to create innovative strategies and develop best in class programs that drive sustainable effectiveness.

The Protective Services team focuses on providing robust security strategies for Google events as well as providing global security management and logistics for Google employees. You possess Executive or Dignitary Protection (DP/EP) experience as well as significant experience organizing security planning and logistics of a non-security event, partnering cross-functionally with stakeholders and interfacing with senior executives and principals. The event security requirements include performing site assessments, advances, coordinating contract security personnel in partnership with site security and internal regional security managers, organizing access control as well as arrangements for high visibility attendees including employees and guests.

Just as Google products always focus on the user, Google offices focus on the Googler. From state-of-the-art green construction projects to maintaining our resident T. Rex skeleton (named Stan), the Real Estate and Workplace Services team builds environments that keep Googlers feeling inspired and energized. We're a team of inquisitive and energetic real estate, construction and facilities operations professionals that are constantly searching for new ways to improve workplace efficiency and make Google a great place to come to work everyday.
