“What I really like about this role is that it combines the technical aspects of equipment with operational and human aspects. We have to think about how to prevent, but also how to cope with abrupt and negative events that could happen in case of a terroristic event. There’s a technical aspect involved such as the stability of the building, but also the human aspect: how would people react and where can people go to?’’
“In my role, I personally work frequently on checkpoint design, security zoning and access control. We think a lot about topics like: how do we make sure people go where they should go and not where they should not go? How do people behave in the terminal environment? And how can people move from A to Z in a secure way? There are a lot more security aspects I work on besides the touchpoints people logically think of, like the security, customs, and border control. There are many aspects related to security, in this way I can learn a lot! It is a specialisation, but at the same time the topic is very broad to me.”
Then a role as a Junior/Medior Airport Security Specialist might be something for you.
