In 2022 technology in security has formed a more substantial part of security strategy, alongside manned solutions drawing both closer together. As a result, the work we do at our CMC is now more interconnected with Corps Security’s specialised security services, particularly when it comes to CCTV live surveillance, intruder & fire alarm monitoring, lone worker devices and key holding.
The world of CCTV monitoring services, and indeed security in general, is in a growing state of evolution. We’ve seen significant growth in our managed monitored solutions thanks to our deeper integration with Corps Security guarding clients and the ability to provide a blended approach that uses both people and contemporary technology.
Continuing to strengthen our team and to better the service we deliver to clients, several internal appointments have been made recently that we are excited to share:
Business Development Manager
In 2014 Jamie joined Corps Monitoring as a CCTV operator before taking on an engineer support position, dealing with alarm management and site configuration. In 2019, Jamie became a technical administrator before being promoted to senior technical administrator role a year later.
This year, Jamie has been promoted to the role of business development manager, leveraging his extensive knowledge of the systems that are monitored to significantly benefit our installer clients, ensuring they can always access the right solution for their needs.
Ross joined Corps Monitoring in 2018 as a CCTV Operator. After just two years, Ross became engineer support, assisting our clients in the field with alarm management and site configuration. This year, Ross has been appointed to technical administrator, assisting our accounts department and our engineers with any issues around systems set up.
His intricate knowledge of monitoring systems makes Ross a brilliant asset to the team, particularly where troubleshooting is concerned. He is also a key member of our Corps Together team as a Guardian for gender and sexuality characteristics.
CCTV Engineer Support
With little security experience but a keen interest in the industry, Robert joined Corps Monitoring as a temp CCTV Operator in 2013. At first covering mainly holidays and busy periods, within months he joined the team full-time working night shifts and learning from highly experienced security officers about being a vigilant operator.
After switching to day shift work and starting a family, Robert began learning the networking side of monitoring, including configuring CCTV, intruder alarm monitoring systems and fire alarm monitoring systems. Today, Robert’s role is CCTV Engineer Support, leading a growing close-knit team and helping to expand Corps Monitoring as a business.
Monitoring Solutions Director
Gavin McCartney joined the Corps Monitoring team in 2010 as a CCTV operator before moving on to the technical administration team. His natural flair for business development led Gavin to the sales team, becoming our business development manager in 2019.
Now, we are proud to have Gavin as our monitoring solutions director, working closely with end user clients and the Corps Security sales team to provide tailor-made integrated security solutions. Gavin’s approach to business development is built on a solid foundation of operational experience in one of the UKs most advanced electronic security and monitoring centres. His grass roots knowledge and expertise mean he can advise customers on the most appropriate solution for them.
These internal appointments signal the first wave of an exciting growth and development strategy for Corps Monitoring, alongside a deeper interconnectivity between all divisions of the business that will carry us into 2023.
We look forward to making further announcements in the new year.
