We are looking for a poised and polished -- not to mention unflappable -- communications professional who can be the voice of G4S on an exciting new contract with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

To be a good fit for this opportunity you will bring solid media experience. With an abundance of organization and razor-sharp attention to details, you'll not only handle the day-to-day communication details, but also be able to grasp the big picture impact of your activities. Of course, you'll also be adept at dealing with the inherent sensitivities of confidential information and showcase the professional maturity, integrity and judgment to know what can be shared with the outside world and what needs to be kept under wraps.

You will be working for G4S and enjoy the stability and resources of a $9 billion company, the world's leading international security solutions group, operating in over 110 countries with more than 585,000 employees. Our values focus on Best People -- we always take care to employ the best people, develop their competence, provide opportunity and inspire them to live our values.
