In 2014 the company re-branded as the SES Group to allow the business to expand and incorporate the three divisions: Show and Event, SES Security and the SES Academy.

The SES Group are considered experts in the field of Security and Crowd Management solutions throughout the UK.

The Company has been responsible for the planning and delivery of some of the nations’ largest and high profile events, including the 2012 Queens Diamond Jubilee Celebrations and the annual New Years’ Eve ‘Marking of Midnight’ celebrations in the heart of London, which the SES Group has been delivering for the last nineteen years.

The company will consider ways to improve the gender diversity including flexible working and will look on the alternative ways to attract more female applicants in future recruitment processes.

  • The SES Group are proud to offer the chance to train members of the public in the use of defibrillators. Villagers are being given the chance to get trained to use this life-saving equipment.

    Sherburn-in-Elmet Parish Council are urging residents to get involved in free training sessions for the two public access defibrillators in the village. Sessions take place every Tuesday, at the Eversley Park Centre. The sessions are organised and run by the SES Group.

    The British Heart Foundation say that during a cardiac arrest, a patient’s chances of survival are quadrupled if CPR and a defibrillator are used within three to five minutes of it first striking.

    The SES Group are hopeful to start offering out these training services across more communities throughout the UK, in the hope of training more people how to save lives.
