About Us

Indigenous Engagement

ESS has a commitment to increasing the Indigenous participation and engagement in the security industry and as such has 49% ownership in an indigenous owned security company, Elevate Security, a registered and certified Supply Nation member. ESS engages Elevate Security to increase participation rates within our contracted portfolio.

ESS employ Aboriginal and Torrest Strait Islanders* staff across all levels of the business, inclusive of corporate roles through to security officers. When sourcing product and services we work with Kinaway, Supply Nation and Elevate Security to ensure we meet our company’s Indigenous, diversity and social equity targets.

ESS has existing relationships with Indigenous recruitment agencies and more importantly, engages with the Australian Government’s Indigenous Advancement Strategy (IAS) to assist with a supportive transition to contractual employment.

ESS has a robust Indigenous recruitment plan and our aim is to meet a 3% Indigenous background workforce target.

Cody Field is a proud Gundungarran man from central western NSW, who has worked in the security industry for the past 20 years.

Specialising in security management Cody has primarily focused on government security and the physical and risk services associated with government.

He has worked in both private and federal government sectors in a range of positions from senior security advisor to account management for government service providers, including diplomatic organisation with foreign governments in Australia and abroad.

Cody advisors ESS on Indigenous employment and procurement initiatives and delivers training on Indigenous Engagement. He is also responsible for overseeing all of ESS’ security operations in the ACT.
