Inspired, flexible, responsive, ambitious
The multi award winning Octavian is one of the world's fastest growing, most forward thinking security-led businesses. It works alongside blue chip and public sector organisations to reduce loss, manage risk, provide manpower resource and generally protect their operations and interests.
Quality is Octavian's mantra, and Octavian openly invites relevant security industry bodies to audit its services to ensure that it remains the market leader in offering superlative efficiency and professionalism to all clients. All staff are supplied with uniforms that are appropriate to the role they are undertaking on the client's behalf, maintaining a highly professional image at all times.
Octavian is ISO:9001:2008 UKAS accredited, is SAFEcontractor approved and meets the specific bespoke quality assurance requirements of the numerous major blue chip organisations that comprise its impressive client list. Impeccable references are available from clients across a diverse range of business sectors.
Octavian is a leader, not a follower. Octavian was the first to use a Ghurkha security force, first to launch UK standard security officer training abroad and first to introduce alcohol sniffer dogs into the Middle East.
Recent innovations include the introduction of advanced technology to protect and support lone workers, digital pens and paper that translate handwritten reports into electronic data, saving time and improving efficiency and a state of the art vehicle tracking system.
From training retail security officers, to delivering ‘on brand' customer service skills, from providing security vetted industrial recruitment candidates, to supplying front of house concierge officers to meet and greet VIPs - understanding clients' needs and implementing appropriate solutions is Octavian's key to success.
Octavian can boast a robust Corporate Social Responsibility policy, spanning economic, social, ethical and environmental sustainability.
Committed to Investing in People, Octavian's industry leading in-house City & Guilds accredited Training Division delivers NVQ and all security courses to both its own staff and those of other organisations, enabling them to fulfill their personal goals.
Octavian is a multi-cultural and multi-faith organisation, proud of its support to a number of charities, including the NSPCC and SmileTrain, an international organisation which focuses on solving the problems of cleft lips and palates for children in developing countries.
The company also supports the Global Girls' Fund, the charitable arm of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts. Where there is natural synergy with clients and the charity, Octavian looks to build in a charitable giving section to each contract, so that the Global Girls' Fund or even the preferred charity of the client benefit from the working relationship via ongoing donations.
Octavian's directors also offer mentoring services to start up businesses through universities and development agencies.
Octavian was the first UK security organisation to work with police forces and local authorities to reduce anti social behaviour and criminal damage.
The track record of both Octavian and its entrepreneurial Founder, Sukhi Ghuman, is remarkably inspiring. Both have won a plethora of accolades from such prestigious bodies as The Institute of Directors, The National Business Awards, The British Chambers of Commerce and the IFSEC Security Industry Awards.
Octavian rises to all new challenges and there is little in the security soft services arena that is outside of its wide ranging capabilities.
‘I cannot recommend Octavian
too highly to any client wishing
to employ a top quality manned
security company on their premises'.
