Trainee Security Engineer - Newport Image


If you thought security engineering is all about hard hats and building sites, think again! It plays a fundamental role in protecting and safeguarding people and their environments. This includes educational sectors, local authorities, specialist sectors and much more.

As a Trainee Security Engineer, as part of the Zitko Talent Programme, you will be learning how to install, maintain and service a range of security and safety systems including CCTV and access control systems in universities, hospitals, shopping centres, airports, and more.

You will be working for a well-established national business who will value and support you, offering a competitive salary, fantastic benefits, modern environments and provide you with the foundation to launch a great career.

On top of this, you'll receive 12-months’ worth of training, including nationally recognised qualifications and courses, direct from industry training providers and manufacturers.

There is also the added benefit of the industry continuing to grow during the current pandemic, meaning long-term security and stability for you and your career.

If your desire is to improve everyone’s quality of life and shape the world of tomorrow, then this is a great opportunity for you!

What should you expect from the training?

  • A fully coordinated programme of training with your employer during your first 12-months which packs in around 125 hours’ foundation training, up to 160 hours’ product training and on-job-the-job training.
  • The best bit is that you won’t pay a penny for your training.  In fact, you’ll be earning a decent wage as you work and learn full-time (often including additional company benefits).

In summary, you’ll get:

  • Paid permanent employment.
  • Carefully planned on-the-job training and work experience.
  • Classroom and online training working with security technology, applications and concepts.
  • Certified training on the systems your host company uses – direct from the manufacturer.
  • Mentoring and support from the Zitko Talent team and your employer.
  • A Level 3 Apprenticeship in Security Engineering.
  • Up to £20,000 of support, training and investment in you and your career.

So, what background do you need?

  • Naturally, you will enjoy communicating and building rapport with others and travelling. You’ll work well as a team, love solving problems, making a genuine difference every day, learning and building on your inherent engineering skills abilities. And of course, you’ll love technology and want to part of an exciting industry!
  • IT and/or Electrical Skills would be an advantage.


  • You must have a clear criminal record and hold a full UK driving licence.
