Prior to joining GSTS, Ashley worked for ten years in various sectors of the security industry, gaining the requisite transferable skills, gaining valuable experience on the ground, in supervisory and management roles. He successfully completed a bachelor’s degree in Risk Management, Security Operations and Investigations at the University of South Wales. Ashley was recruited as a Deputy Security Contract Manager at GSTS and has since gained valuable managerial experience in the specialised arena of Healthcare Security across the contract.
Recently, Ashley was recognised as the Runner Up for Innovation in the National Association of Healthcare Security (NAHS) Awards. For this tremendous achievement, Ashley designed and developed pocket sized translation cards for our security officers to carry on patrol. This fantastic innovation, borne out of necessity, has already been used in our hospital settings, with very positive results, helping prevent potential conflict and provide reassurance for patients, visitors, and staff where communication can be difficult due to a language barrier.
“Since joining GSTS, I have been impressed with the professionalism and dedication that my colleagues show. We strive to be better every day and that message is driven from the top down. I have been fortunate enough to join this ambitious company at an exciting time of growth and expansion, and I look forward to continuing this journey. The motto we have adopted here at GSTS is ‘One Team’ and I certainly am proud to be a part of this one! #oneteam”
