Aylesbury: Jobs created as Orbis Protect expands network

National security services provider Orbis Protect is investing in new premises and jobs in Aylesbury to support its continued growth into 2020.

The company has agreed terms on new depot and office space in the centre of Aylesbury following recent contract wins to provide vacant property and site protection for social housing and commercial buildings, and extended service agreements with existing clients.

The premises in Rabans Close will employ up to six new members of staff, who Orbis is actively recruiting. Orbis Protect now has 19 offices, spanning all UK regions, and supports a portfolio of hundreds of clients.

Orbis Protect’s South East branch manager, Gavin Kelly, said: “Our new office extends our regional presence and builds on our excellent track record in Aylesbury and across the South East.

“This is a fantastic way to start 2020, and I’m looking forward to building a new team here and delivering for our clients and partners.”

Orbis works with organisations from sectors including construction, housing, manufacturing, retail, and professional services who need support to keep their buildings and employees protected.

Orbis CEO Guy Other added: “We have big plans for growth this year and investing in Aylesbury is an important part of this ambition.

“This a natural step for the team, following its excellent work and new business in Aylesbury.

“We’re really pleased to be hiring new members of staff and building a new team in Aylesbury.”

Orbis’ recent local new clients include Vale of Aylesbury Housing Trust, which owns and manages more than 21,000 homes across the district.

Orbis Protect is the UK’s leading vacant property management, site and lone worker protector. Established in 1981, the company has 18 offices across the UK, employs more than 440 staff, has a fleet of more than 160 vehicles, and a turnover of more than £30 million.
