Octavian Security UK, the Nottinghamshire-based accredited security protection firm, has promoted Nickie Hume to Operations Director.

Nickie joined Octavian Security UK 18 years ago as a Security Officer and has worked his way up the firm’s ladder to deservedly take his place as a Director at the company. Octavian Security UK has a long history of promoting from within, offering career gateways for its staff.

Reflecting on the last 18 years, Nickie said: “The industry as a whole has evolved. Changes are constant and it’s no longer simply about providing a Security Officer on site; these days we offer a full service of tech and systems – along with all the accreditations our discerning customers demand.”

Kiran Ghuman, managing director of Octavian Security UK, said: “Nickie’s promotion is well-deserved. He’s been a loyal employee of the company and always willing to adapt to changes in the industry. We’re sure he’ll be a huge success as our new Operations Director and we look forward to seeing him grow even further.”

Nickie added: “My ambitions for my new role include continuing to represent Octavian Security UK to the best of my ability and deliver on strengthening and growing the business with the help of everyone from the Ghuman family to the team on the ground.”
