Reconnaissance Group to create 20 jobs

Covid-19 has increased the threat landscape for businesses and Irish-headquartered Reconnaissance Group is ready for action.

Irish-owned international security company Reconnaissance Group is to create over 20 new roles as part of its 2022 expansion plans.

The company, which is based in Dublin is made up of highly trained individuals from an array of backgrounds including military, police, security, legal and business.

“The organisation has made great strides across Ireland and we hope to expand further and help mitigate the risks businesses face in security, health and safety as 2022 continues”

It aims to make new hires in the midst of a turbulent Covid landscape and an increase in demand for its services. Reconnaissance Group specialises in security risk management, business continuity and health and safety training services for companies.

The organisation plans to recruit over 20 additional staff within the first six months of the new year. The roles will predominantly be in security and compliance for VIP and high-level clients and organisations.

Threats are everywhere

With the increase in Covid-19 compliance laws and increase in variants ensuring all parties are safe and abiding by health and safety guidelines is paramount to the company as it expands operations.

Founded in 2006 by Shane Henry, a well-established veteran of the Irish Defence Forces, the company which is headquartered in Dublin, boasts sister offices in New York and Haiti. Drawing on its extensive expertise, the organisation provides specialised security services to a portfolio of global clients.

Reconnaissance Group has worked in some of the world’s most challenging landscapes, overcoming historic operational and economic hurdles. It uses operational expertise in these complex regions to sustainably boost client growth and development, continually taking business environment, stability, and capability into account.

Recently PWC’s 24th Annual CEO Survey highlighted that 59 percent of Irish business leaders are now extremely concerned about the threat of pandemics and other health crises. Additionally, the survey also found that 90 percent of Irish business leaders are planning to reassess their organisation’s tolerance for risk as a result of the Covid-19 crisis.

With that in mind, according to a 2021 EY Report, Covid-19 has increased both the opportunities for fraud as well as the odds of getting away with it. As a result, Covid-19 compliance and security are of utmost importance if society and organisations are to return to any form of normality post-pandemic.

“We are thrilled to be growing our business on home soil and opening up new positions which have come into play as a result of the pandemic,” Henry said.

“The organisation has made great strides across Ireland and we hope to expand further and help mitigate the risks businesses face in security, health and safety as 2022 continues.”
