1  New South Wales / NSW Security Contractors N to Z / Southern Cross Group - Youngest Site Supervisors in The Country!

People of Southern Cross Group:

For me(Risk and Security Coordinator), Southern Cross Group is about the great people I work with every day and being appreciated by my team.

I joined the Security Industry at the age of 19. In 2014 I became second in command for a major retail organization in Sydney before eventually being promoted to the Site Risk & Security Supervisor role at the age of 23 - one of the youngest site supervisors in the country!

When I started working at the Museum as a supervisor, my challenge was to transform the culture and unite the team regardless of the differences between us. We have achieved this outcome and I am very proud of the entire team. The only way to do a great job in the security industry is to trust your colleagues and make sure they receive the right training. In doing so, you'll be confident that they can do a great job any time and in any situation.

At the end of the day, we all have the same cause at heart - to offer a safe environment to every single person at the Museum.

Remember, Safety is everybody’s responsibility!”- Zeeshan Khan, Risk and Security Coordinator, Southern Cross Group.

Sham Contracting is rampant in the Security Industry.

Do these scam contracts happen often in our industry?

Contact the Australian Taxation Office about unpaid superannuation. They may be able to help.

The Hunter Valleys favourite dodgy operator (after BSMS) has gone into Administration, and as such has lost its biggest contract, the SNP patrols for NSW. Guards have been left unpaid for the last month, and unfortunately, Supperanuations for longer. Looks very likely like illegal phoenix activity, but this time SNP weren't having it.

A warning to all to stay clear of the shonky dealings of John Murray and co. If you're at BSMS expect an influx of dodgy management as they jump ship.

And always, always, stay ontop of your Super. Some guards are claiming theirs have been unpaid for two years.. Check it!

Dude well said, by the way, It's on our shoulders to make sure that the environment of our site is fully cooperative to them Cheesy.

OlinLes, I am a part time employee and I work 37 hours a week Mon-Thurs. If I am called into to work on any other day (Fri, Sat or Sun) I am paid OT. So yes the positives are better.
We need to be paid by the award and not let employers fiddle with it.

Do you guys think the positives still outweigh the negatives at this point?

WHS update, I was told recently that the Risk Assessments had been completed, so I decided to have a look.
They are the same Risk Assessments that were passed onto the WHS committee I was part of. We didn't accept them at the time.
When reading through one of the assessment it refers to SOPs but we don't have SOPs. How can a Risk Assessment refer to something that does not exist. More troubling is that there was an outside audit of the Risk Assessments and it wasn't picked up. What is the auditor doing?
