info on this web page concern Private Military operators mainly.
At present, literally thousands of security operators try to get
„a piece of the action" in AO's
such as Iraq and elsewhere. Many hundreds of ex-military,
ex-police or private security operators apply with us each year.
Unfortunately, many applicants do not understand the complete
mechanics of the professional world within private military
industry. To prevent you from wasting your time AND ours, we'd
like to lay out some of our principles. We are receiving just too
many applications which will be ignored due to the lack of a
certain basic standard. We will not answer
that are incomplete - we expect applicants to send in a
formally correct application, as they would via snail mail.
Please do not think using e-mail means it’s ok to drop the formal
style altogether. We do expect a formally correct application.
Please be aware that we receive dozens of applications each week -
it may take a little while before we can reply to your
application. Please allow a minimum of 6-8 weeks before you check
back with us as regards your application. Many security firms will
make staff redundant shortly. Thousands of ex-Iraq operators etc.
from various countries will be flooding the market come
in addition to the vast amount of ex-military already trying to
find employment. Our HR dep’t is handling literally hundreds of
applications each month.
We will select and answer only those
applications that fit our requirements.
You need to speak
English well enough to operate and communicate entirely and with
ease in English.
This is an indispensable requirement. There’s no way around this.
Even though we may offer German, French, Spanish web pages dealing
with recruitment, English will still be the central, main
language. In international security, you can’t successfully
operate long-term without a good
working knowledge of the English
apply with us in English, please.
are NOT looking for desperados, cowboys, machos and gunslingers
and the like. If all you know is how to fire a few types of
weapons, please do not apply. On a global scale, many thousands of
experienced combat experts from Eastern Europe, Africa,
Asia, the Americas, the Middle East, France, Britain, the US and
even Asia are available, many at low salary. We do not employ
inexperienced personnel with no REAL combat experience. For
us, this means: you’ve really shot at people, people
really shot at you with intent to kill you – again: we are NOT too
much involved in the regular static security, facility guarding,
convoy security etc. We've seen people break down and cry in
real combat situations due to lack of experience and we don't
really want that to happen in our teams. Other example: it is
great if someone had excellent sniper training but this would be
of no use to us if they had never actually fired a rifle upon a
person, let alone in a non-threat, civil environment... If you
applied as a sniper for private military, we’d expect you to fire
at the enemy if the situation warrants it... (this is NOT the only
or even main task of a sniper, of course). If you cannot do that
if need be, don't apply as a sniper. If you have the training but
you're not willing to use your skills when the assignment
requires it, then the skills are of no use to us. It's important
to understand this.
are not arrogant or macho, we're just being realistic. We can't
have wannabes, war gamers and non-experienced operators in our
teams either. That is the only reason why we make this kind of
selection. Our main line of business is NOT static security and
thus requirements for employment with us differ from those with
other security companies which might be focused more on static
protection, convoy protection etc. We’ve received criticism that
it’s paradox to ask for warriors with real combat experience on
the one hand, and then say we don’t want gunslingers… Well, we
don’t look at it that way. We think it’s a BIG difference between
an experienced, intelligent warrior and a gunslinger. We are
looking for warriors who can make that difference.
sure when applying with us that you understand what PRIVATE
Military is all about. You are no longer official military,
you are no longer law enforcement - you WILL need to act for a
private client and HIS interests, you might NOT be protected
by the law as you’ve been as a member of the Army etc., in fact,
at one point or the other, you might even get in conflict with one
law or the other when running ops in some foreign country. As a
matter of fact: this goes even for official SpecOps members more
often than not, the trick for them is NOT to get caught. In MANY
SpecOps operations, even Delta or SAS members break the law
and would they get caught, ended up in dire straights. So please
be aware that in private military you are NOT covered by your
government and you should be still very comfortable with that.
is hardly any way to avoid some sort of “inner conflict” at all
times as our client's opponents might not care about the law
either. Please refrain from applying with us if that’s a general
problem for you. Our job is usually not of the humanitarian kind.
We are looking for the private professional warrior who will put
the client’s interest first and act, when he’s being asked to.
you're looking for an easy job, static security, mainly in no-risk
or low-risk environments, do not apply with us. You will need to
enter high-risk AO's
times, you must be willing and able to travel worldwide and work
according to our schedule (which is NOT 9 to 5...), and we expect
you to be loyal and follow instructions and orders. If that is not
what you’ve been looking for, please do not apply with us.
We expect you to send in a CV/resume, of course. We need your
full name, address and a land line phone no. and e-mail address.
What we do not want for now is a list about a
mile long of how many certificates you own (we might very well
come to that later on), what kind of guns you can fire, a dozen
martial arts you might know, the "associations" you are member of
and such like. In your initial application, please just state the
kind of skills, training and qualification you have and where you
acquired these and what kind of professional experience you have.
We expect you to know how to fire one kind of rifle and pistol,
thus we take it you will easily be able to fire other models,
too... so please don't list all models you ever held in your hands
unless you're talking about very specific weaponry. If we
feel your service might be of interest, we’ll contact you back and
ask for details and copies of certificates etc. at a later point.
fact alone that an applicant has once trained with members
of certain unit or agency does not mean too much to us. Again: we
are interested in combat-experienced operators and veterans ONLY,
true expert warriors with real work experience; we are not looking
for run-of-the-mill ex-military or ex-police with standard
training. We keep receiving just too many applications and simply
cannot even reply to all of those e-mails
they don’t meet our standards. We're sorry, but that's
like it is. When in need of
simple security or military operators, we're more likely to use
the pool of ex-combat personnel from readily and abundantly
available staff pools inside the BSG. And PLEASE: don't tell us
you're a Marine, when you're not... we CAN find out about these
things and we will ask you to provide credentials at a
later point to show us that you are in fact what you claim to be.
but not least: as regards private military, we focus on
operations, we are not the regular private military
company guarding compounds or convoys etc. We do need special
operators and these are rare, we are aware of that. We do need to select our staff
to be able to react to our
clients' special requirements. We prefer SOF operators, Marine
Rangers and similar operators with combat experience and
preferably college education, intel skills for military ops, as
well as undercover and special investigations in civil
environments as well. You should also be willing to learn new
skills. We are currently interested in rotary wing operators with
combat experience, logistics experts with good contacts to civil
suppliers and operators with ELINT experience (also technical).
Applicants with active US
security clearance will be favored.
DO NOT send in your application to 10 different of our e-mail
network partners share the same internal HR
