Some common questions answered
Q. Private Military Company Pay Vs. Army Pay
A. Twice as much Same as the ranking within the Military, your pay will reflect your responsibility except your monthly pay to be £5,000 – £8000
Q. What are the job roles in this industry?
A. Private Contractor Jobs.Private contractors are employed in war zones and other dangerous areas to perform a wide variety of specialized jobs, including repair and maintenance of infrastructure and pipeline equipment. Other contractors provide armed security for truck convoys carrying supplies between military bases, serve as guards for corporate headquarters and government buildings and provide personal protection for politicians and other leading figures. Private military contractors are normally employed only in defensive roles and are only expected to engage in combat if attacked. They are not generally used for offensive military operations, so the term “mercenary” may not be strictly appropriate for what they do.

Q. What are the job opportunities after training?
A. Putting aside UCP Security Operations data base of former UCP UK graduates that now work within the industry direct with UCP SO, there are plenty more opportunities within our network of associates for overseas and UK based employment and work.
