The company's history may be short in terms of time but certainly not short on character, this section of the website will take you through; our brief history, what it is that drives us, and the ambitions we hold for the future, giving you an insight in to what we are made of here at Civil Security Solutions.
Civil Security Solutions was founded by Josh Difford a rising social entrepreneur who is passionate about social change, corporate social responsibility, equality for all. This passion was forged from his own personal observations of the business and security industry sparking a drive to create a new way of running a security company, a way that retains exceptional performance yet is noble in its intentions, a way that operates at competitive market rate yet generous in nature, a way that offers opportunity and reform to those who are as ambitious as we are, a way that will carve out a new future for the security industry.
The year 2015 in the city of Bristol this journey began remembering that 'Rome was not built in a day' we got to work building. The foundations filled with aspirations, dreams, morals. The labour fuelled by grit, determination, wit. Once the foundations where set, our extensive experience was used to created the humble company you see before you today, becoming stitched in the very fabric the city we love is woven from.
The question you may be asking at this stage is 'Why?' 'What's in it for them?'. The answer is very simple 'You do not need a reason to do a good thing - Josh Difford'.
"Social enterprises trade to tackle social problems, improve communities, people’s life chances, or the environment. They make their money from selling goods and services in the open market, but they reinvest their profits back into the business or the local community. And so when they profit, society profits."
A well crafted description on what a social enterprise is by definition but what does it mean for you? Our different approach to business gives people who are looking for security services a new factor to consider when it comes to the added value a service provider can offer you, and because Civil Security Solutions is a community interest company (CIC) the very articles upon which the company is founded show our commitment to investing back in to the local community, meaning as well as receiving an expectation defying service clients can also take pride in the fact that they have contributed to something bigger, something truly wonderful, a movement that's shaping a better future for our city.
