A mate of mine works out there earning 5k a month - tax free. He is on a 1 year contract and had no prior experience appart from his military training - they sent him on a 6 week course. If he completes his contract and extends it he gets 9k bonus tax free. I'll try and find out who he went through. Watch this space.

or better still...Global Risk Strategies

My understanding is that you need to read the small print with reagrd to some firms that offer CP training etc..

Why? Did the owner shag your missus or have you sound professional reasons? It would be very useful to know them.

With thanx to "Take that RSM" you will find the opportunities listed here.

Seriously though, my advice would be to take a long hard look at the packages they are offering for healthcare, medevac and insurance for your next of kin. Then re assess to look to see if the £5K is really worth it. If you get injured don't excpect to get treated like you were in the Army still. If you were foolish enough not to have kept you NI contributions up you may also be in a predicament.

If it any consolation, at leat your NOK will know that the bloke from the london office who turned up for your funeral, had a nice Hugo Boss suit on and some Gucci loafers to match. How can he manage to afford this years 4.6 HSE Rangerover as well??

This package is starting to look a bit more reallistic, perhaps not as well paid as some but:

Employees are paid during down time and all food, accommodation, travelling expenses, weapons and body armour are provided. There is also full DoD status, and full evacuation is covered. Medical cover to $500k and dental cover by the US Army and life coverage to £100k. Accommodation is outside the Green Zone in protected compounds guarded by the company guards.

however you wont be able to just rock up on the CP Board asking questions, you will have to ask to join and get your CV checked out first.

One of the companies tipped up at our gaff to ask for med supplies.......we gave it to them but it does just go to show that to stick with the reputable firms is the wisest option.That said the package they eventually got round to offering seemed financially promising. :D

Can we keep within the topic! Or is that just impossible.

Everyone, stop rising to the bait.

Private Security work where ever it may be is not always as cut and dry as it may seem. Check this bloke out who was of to protect dimond mines
