FAQs

  • Can you tell me a little more about Athena?

    Athena was founded 2006. Drawing on over 16 years experience within the industry, director Lee Horton wanted to provide a new type of security service. Within a relatively short space of time, Athena has established itself a reputation of quality and versatility - with clients ranging from small businesses to well-known celebrities and dignitaries. Based in London, Athena provides a wide range of security services within the UK and further afield. It has recently set up a northern branch based in Manchester.

  • Why should we trust you?

    Athena has established a good reputation - one that we're proud of. We are recognised by the Security Industry Authority. We also put our money where our mouth is and offer a free appraisal of your current security arrangements, so you can decide if we're right for you.

  • How do you ensure your security operatives work to the highest standards?

    All of the security operatives who work for us are full qualified and approved by the SIA (Security Industry Authority). They draw on their military, police and civilian background to work to the highest level of loyalty, professionalism and tenacity.

  • How much notice do you need to take on a job?

    We will respond to your request immediately. If we can't find the right skill-set within the local resources available, we'll simply work with other security companies.

  • What precautions do you take to ensure confidentiality?

    Confidentiality, integrity and discretion are our bye words. Our choice of security operative can make or break our reputation, so it's in our interest to get it right. In fact, we could not possibly support our large client base if trust wasn't at the forefront of what we do.

  • How many security operatives can you employ at any one time?

    Any number! Just let us know the scale of the job and we'll supply the necessary security.

  • Are you available 24 hours a day?

    Yes, we'll work round the clock when it's needed. Outside office hours, we have a mobile number that can be regularly monitored for messages.

  • How do you charge?

    We require between 10% and 50% deposit upfront and the full amount on completion.
