The start of a brand new month is a good time to introduce our team in Belfast
Karen Bell is the General Manager of our offices in Derry and Belfast as well as London.
A long time worker in the Security industry, Karen joined Manguard Plus in 2015 as part of a business merger with another security company where she had worked for the intervening 13 years.
Karen has enjoyed a steady career path in the security sector working in several roles before progressing to Business Development and Office Management. As General Manager with Manguard Plus Karen oversees some 140 staff members and contracts across our offices in Belfast, Derry and London.
Working in what is a very vibrant and dynamic industry, Karen says it is one that she would happily encourage people to investigate working in.
“I absolutely love my job. It can be demanding but oh so rewarding. I am privileged to work with the people I do, they are hardworking, dedicated and take pride in their jobs. I find this so refreshing. We have a fabulous team; we all work incredibly well together. Security is a career with huge opportunities and one I would encourage anybody to join. I would love to see more women working in this area. Women and men think a little differently, and that’s a good thing, as diversity on a team brings about greater creativity and fresh approaches when looking at potential problems. In my opinion all Security personnel, male or female, play an invaluable role in ensuring the safety of people and property and as such, the community has come to rely on their integrity and judgement”.
“We are lucky in that Manguard Plus places huge emphasis on training and upskilling its members. Not only does this give us huge confidence to do our jobs, it gives us confidence in the company as we know it genuinely respects and values us as part of a team. I feel I have found my niche and as they say a happy worker is a hard worker”.
