After the terror attacks in Paris, the security threat level has been increased to level 3 in Belgium (serious, possible and probable) and even to the highest level 4 (serious and imminent) in Brussels. In this context, security companies are requested to provide extra services. Securitas has announced the recruitment of 350 new employees.

Two other well-known security companies, G4S and Seris Security, have also announced new jobs following the Paris attacks. In total, the higher level of security threat will lead to some 650 extra jobs. Securitas is expecting the higher demand for extra security services to last for a long time, even if the threat levels revert to normal levels soon.
