Manned Guarding – Asset Protection

Sometimes, we all need guards we can trust; let us help you protect your assets with our quality guard force. We pride ourselves on the standard, performance and supervision of our guard force and will help you effectively protect your business and assets from harm in a cost effective and sustainable way.


Global Quality, Delivered Locally: Where a quality service is desired Pilgrims will deliver it. We are one of very few international companies that are Globally accredited to the international security company.



Standard PSC 1. As part of the UK based Pilgrims Group Limited, we have developed our own processes and support tools which have regularly been recognised as world class by the UK Security Industry and have resulted in regular awards at the UK Security Excellence Awards.



Risk Based Approach:

Pilgrims takes a risk based approach to all its operations and especially asset protection. We will always work with you to listen to what you want to achieve, suggest how this might be best achieved in the most cost effective way, and then provide the solution and manage the resource to meet your needs. For major projects, we offer a full threat and security risk assessment, if appropriate using our proprietary and world leading risk management software – HawksightTM.



Turn-Key Solutions : 

Our service goes well beyond the provision of guards.  We offer a turn-key solution to your asset protection needs from the initial site assessment through to on-going management; we can, if appropriate, provide technical solutions to support the security team that cover alarms (fire and security), surveillance (CCTV and Intruder Detection systems), barriers (perimeter and anti-vehicle systems), lighting, lock solutions, Canine services (through a trusted associate) as well as the emergency response to any incidents if and when they occur with armed and or medical response teams.

Our services cover both residential and commercial sites, including the design, implementation and operation of turn-key site security solutions.


  • What makes our Guards Different?

We will, wherever practical and appropriate, recruit our staff locally, not only to support the local community and reduce travel and accommodation costs – keeping your costs down, but also because the locally recruited staff know their environment and add that knowledge of what “fits” to our training.  This is the same “pool” that most security companies dip into.

We always carry-out a full vetting process on all our staff, including the requirement for guarantors and follow up with them to check the validity of the guarantor.

Pilgrims training programme starts on day one and does not stop.  Our Group wide and award winning manned guarding training programme, e-GuardingTM, has been adapted for use in Nigeria where literacy levels are not always as high as in the UK.  This system includes 10 stand-alone modules designed to improve individual guard competencies, are tested to ensure understanding and then form part of our ongoing training programme.  Experience has shown that our training improves guard performance by at least 40% over their peers who have not undergone similar training.

Our guard turn-over rate is well below the industry average, ensuring our trained guards are consistently available to protect your site.  Our staff loyalty is earned. We believe in paying a living wage and paying it on time.  In addition, we like to reward our staff for their loyalty and performance not only with SPOT BONUSES for outstanding or exceptional performance. Our staff are part of the Pilgrims family; a team committed to protecting your assets.

  • Why is our Guarding package so good?
