We're delighted to announce a new member of the Capricorn Team;
Steve Sloan joins us from today, as an addition to our Operations Management Team, and will be initially based in our Manchester Head Office, then will move across the Pennines to our Yorkshire Division.
Steve brings with him a wealth of contacts and experience in recruiting and in the Security & Events Sector as a whole, having worked in the past for G4S, and for the last 5 years Securitas, where he was Branch Manager for the Yorkshire & Humber region.
Rumour has it he’s also a dab hand at avoiding molten hot lasagne being hurled at him by a knife wielding drunken chef, long enough to allow 400 audience members to be evacuated! Just the kind of skills we were looking for!
Our MD Billy Robinson said "I'm excited to utilise Steve’s talents to strengthen the Capricorn Brand, as the business continues to grow and move forward on the next stage of our journey"
In cinemas from Friday, the amazingly talented and versatile Maxine Peake plays the gritty role of 'Funny Cow', a comedienne who breaks through the glass ceiling of the all-male 1970s comedy circuit to rise to stardom.
Set against the backdrop of working men's clubs in the North of England and centred around her troubled childhood and turbulent adult life, Funny Cow uses the raw material of her life experiences to bring her unique style of comedy to the stage and is both a love-letter to a bygone era and the defiant story of a woman who refuses to give up on her dreams.
An authentic 1970s cafe in Bradford was the setting for some of the scenes, and our Yorkshire division really enjoyed working on what is sure to be a cult classic!FUNNY COW In UK cinemas on April 20. www.funnycowfilm.co.uk Starring MAXINE PEAKE, PADDY CONSIDINE, STEPHEN GRAHAM Directed by ADRIAN SHERGOLD Written by TON... ...

Some of our other security contracts had a real International flair last week with our Close Protection Team having the pleasure of working with Swedish Actor and Celebrity Chef Per Morberg, Danish comedian Casper Christensen, as well as England and Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and England International Cricketer and TV favourite Andrew ‘Freddie’ Flintoff, in several North West locations and studios.
We have been overwhelmed with the positive feedback received from both our Manchester based agencies and the International customers themselves, for the Guarding and Close Protection Services provided, and are especially proud of the continued praise from one client with whom we’ve just achieved the anniversary of providing them with 15 years of service. ...
