The company was ranked at position 386 overall, making it the 70th fastest growing company in the UK across all categories during the period and the 40th fastest growing ‘support services’ company in Europe.  The company’s position in the table makes it the fastest growing provider of physical security services in Europe for the period.

Global Support Services is accredited to Investors in People Gold standard and was one of the first 100 businesses in the UK to be awarded Living Wage Champion status. The business’ growth has been stimulated because of an unwavering dedication to its vision which includes being recognised as the employer of choice in the UK Security Industry.

Global Support Services Managing Director Daniel Mailly (right) said: “We are all delighted to be recognised by the Financial Times , especially as the ranking recognises growth that has been achieved ‘organically’. I believe that growth should be achieved in a sustainable fashion and therefore to the betterment of both the people that work for us and the clients we serve. As a happy consequence of this attitude, we are the largest operator of protection canine units in the UK currently and have some of the best levels of employee retention and client satisfaction in our industry here in the UK.

"Around 65% of our 150-strong workforce are ex-uniformed personnel and we operate a recruitment process that is designed to be both fully inclusive and one that we hope broadens the traditional career appeal of a historically male dominated industry. Additionally, we take great pride in the work we do in support of our partners such as Veterans Aid and Storm Skills Training. Together with my valued team, I look forward to continuously capatilsing on our sustainable growth to create many more employment opportunities and to assist in continuing to make the UK a hub for innovation.”

The FT1000 lists 1000 companies in Europe that have achieved the highest percentage growth in revenues between 2012 and 2015.
