Seeking advice: Subcontracting Leads for Security Guarding Company


Related stories


Dear Forum Members,

I hope this message finds you well. I am reaching out to seek guidance and advice from those experienced in the security industry.

I have a background in the security industry and have recently developed an interest in starting my own security guarding company. Specifically, I am keen on subcontracting security guards from main contractors. However, I am facing challenges in understanding how others in the market secure subcontractor leads. It seems that many opportunities are shared informally through Whats App groups, where shifts and temporary security jobs are quickly filled.

I am reaching out to this forum in the hope of gaining insights and sources for obtaining subcontract leads for my security company. Every piece of information, no matter how small, would greatly assist me in achieving my goals.

I want to clarify that, for now, I am not looking to become a main contractor or an SIA approved contractor, as I understand the complexities and challenges involved. However, with further experience, I may explore those avenues in the future.

My primary question is: What are the main sources for subcontract leads in the security industry, particularly those shared through Whats App groups for covering shifts?

Thank you in advance for your valuable assistance and insights.
