Yolocal is the first ever online guard marketplace of its kind.
Designed with a focus on hard work, simplicity, and quality, it’s poised to become a game-changer. like many great ideas, it began with a simple desire to fix an industry that is desperately broken.
After more than a decade of experience in the security industry, founder James Johns was almost at breaking point. “For about four years I wanted to quit at some point of each week — if not multiple points.” And yet — like so many others trapped by the current system — he couldn’t do it. A passion for the industry — and a love of being a door supervisor — compelled him to stay. So, he endured the very challenging set-up of running as a medium-sized security provider. The final straw came one miserable, wet night, standing in the rain for hours with an excellent doorman. Miles from home, freezing cold, and on “standardised rates” the industries competition more than often forces, this guard continued to do an honest, outstanding job. And as the rain poured down, James couldn’t escape the thought that this man — and so many like him — deserved so much more than ‘standard’ pay. But to do that, the system had to change. And so, rather than be a part of the problem, he decided to be part of the solution.
That’s how Yolocal was created. Today, Yolocal is a this online powerful marketplace for the cream of the crop when it comes to security. We work with the best providers — those who want pay reform, better standards, and prospects. And by charging low commissions, and focusing on the security itself, we offer the best outcome for everyone — both customers and the service providers. For customers, that means that you can easily find great security, and hire them with minimal hassle. For providers, it means working for who you want, when you want, and getting paid better for continued good work. And for everyone, it means a strong alternative to the current troubles.
So if you’re a guard who’s tired of the current system — or you’re looking for some top security talent that you can trust to do an excellent job — Yolocal is the place to find it.
