Maxine can be a living, breathing first line of defence for businesses against external threats, criminal activity and emergency situations. She has the confidence, experience, drive, flexibility and determination needed to provide the highest standard of operational security to any premises. Her key strength is her ability to do a stressful job, were she will see many different things throughout the day and be put in uncomfortable situations. In her current role she is part of a team that looks after the security of a large shopping mall. At work she has a reputation for making good judgment calls and coming to sensible conclusions. On a personal level she has the ability to deal sensitively, effectively and efficiently with people and resolve basic day to day problems. Being a sociable person means she can quickly get to know her fellow security officers and other colleagues. Right now, she wants to join a responsible modern organisation that has best practice as a fundamental part of its DNA.
