Title: Wilson Security calls for G20 guards
Post by Administrator on 26. Jun 2014 at 11:19
See: http://www.perthnow.com.au/news/national/wilson-security-calls-for-g20-guards-on-seekcom-for-largest-security-operation-in-australian-history/story-fnii5v6y-1226965506270?nk=1f26bc87308d3b2e33428e98c31ce4d4

Quote:
A GROUP of private security guards is being recruited for Brisbane’s upcoming G20 summit in a multi-million-dollar Commonwealth contract.

Wilson Security is believed to be looking for about 1000 guards to be “part of the largest security operation in Australian history”.

And far from being top ­secret, the positions are being advertised as “once in a lifetime” opportunities on SEEK.

Other attractions were a “great above-award pay rate” and “meals supplied when living away from home”.

While Wilson Security would not comment, a spokesperson for the Federal Government’s G20 Taskforce confirmed the company would provide “security guarding ­services” and “security equipment” for “host year meetings culminating in the G20 leaders’ summit in November”.

“Up to $12.5 million has been budgeted for these services,” the spokesperson said.

Wilson's are farming  out G20 manpower to others..
I have an induction with a  sub continent run company whose receptionist kept telling me to bring my passport to my induction, to which I kept replying" Why do I need to bring my passport when I am an Australian Citizen with a birth certificate?"  She then finally  asked me if I was an Australian Citizen....
Considering that I have worked for the manager of this company before so am wondering about their communication skills or reading on my TFN  form that I am an Australian Citizen.
I hope that they are paying correct wages and not "Indian-Student-Working-20 hours per week only supposedly-then drive taxis or work in takeaway shop style"
I also hope that Wilsons are better organised as I
have already been asked my suit size so there will be penguins all around the BNE CBD in November
Will see what happens later this week.

It was a very interesting event, and require a lot of effort to ensure safety.
