- Mitie has won a three-year security contract to provide manned guarding for the Bank of England
- The contract will cover the Bank’s iconic Threadneedle Street site in the City of London
Mitie has won a security contract with the Bank of England, following a competitive tender process. The contract is initially for three years with the option to extend for a further two years.
Mitie will provide manned guarding services for the Bank of England’s high-profile site at Threadneedle Street in the City of London, as well as its site in Debden, Essex. Drawing on its extensive security expertise, Mitie’s team will support the UK’s central bank 24 hours, 365 days a year.
The Bank of England was founded in 1694 as private bank to the UK government and later moved to its iconic Threadneedle Street location in London in 1734. Today it is known as the UK’s central bank due to the London site location. In 1900, it lent its name to Bank tube station.
Jason Towse, Managing Director, Security, Mitie, said:
“We are delighted to have been appointed by the Bank of England to deliver crucial guarding services at its sites, including at the iconic Threadneedle Street site in the City of London. As the UK’s leading intelligence and tech-led security business, we are well placed to keep the sites safe and secure for such a prestigious client.”
As the world’s 8th largest bank holding priceless assets, The Bank of England required a corporate security provider to protect its high security environment and List X buildings, working in collaboration with the in-house security team.
