Job Description

Leicester City Football Club has multiple exciting opportunities to join a Premier League Football Club – we are looking for experienced Security Officers to join our teams across all Club's sites, including King Power Stadium, the Club’s new world-class training facility, and LCFC Women’s Belvoir Drive training facility.

You never get a second chance at a first impression, and our Security team really is the face of the Club in this respect being, more often than not, the first point of contact for anyone visiting an LCFC site. Responsible for assisting with the provision of a full access control, protection and loss prevention service, our Security Officers deliver this whilst working collaboratively to provide an exceptional experience to all staff, contractors, fans and guests, ensuring their well-being, health, safety and security.

Who We’re Looking For

In addition to their security experience (possession of a SIA qualification is essential) the ideal candidate will be able to demonstrate their ability to offer a high level of customer service in this prominent, front-facing role.

We’re looking for an individual who can deliver an exceptional welcome yet is also confident in their ability to problem-solve and deal with difficult situations. Additionally, we’re looking for somebody with the flexibility to work a 12-hour ‘continental’ shift pattern, that includes nights and weekend working on a rota basis. 

About The Club

Knowing some of the history of Leicester City Football Club helps you appreciate the sense of community, spirit and family for which the Foxes are renowned for.

Formed in 1884, the Club has been in the Premier League since 2014 when the Foxes were promoted as Championship winners. In 2016, Leicester City became Premier League champions. This remarkable achievement qualified them for the UEFA Champions League for the first time in the Club’s history, and the Foxes went on to reach the quarter finals of the competition.  The Club continues to build on that success, and celebrated lifting the prestigious FA Cup in May 2021.

Under the stewardship of King Power and the Club’s CEO Susan Whelan, Leicester City Football Club is deeply committed to the local community and its supporters and continually strives to ensure that every point of engagement with fans is truly world class including the experience on matchdays.  Meanwhile, investment in the Club continues, with the recent opening of a new state-of-the-art training ground in north Leicestershire.

Ultimately, the Club’s vision is as exciting as it is simple: we believe that together, it’s possible. We value and respect individual difference and recognise that the diversity of our staff contributes to our success off the pitch. Our inclusive culture and approach is supported by our Stonewall Diversity Champions partnership, our Time to Change pledge and our status as a Disability Confident employer.
