Mitie's security business and Signature, its bespoke front-of-house business, have been awarded two new contracts with a combined value of £7 million.

 

The first win is a three-year deal with the prestigious Royal Academy of Arts, in Piccadilly, London, which is celebrating its 250th anniversary this year. Services involve security and front-of-house activities including dedicated gallery assistants to engage with the public, supported by specialist security personnel. 

 

Danny Vant, director of Mitie's Signature and Security businesses, said: “For the Royal Academy of Arts, we are offering an intuitive approach to security, more closely aligned with their culture and needs. To do this, we have developed a much more customer-centric approach, focusing heavily on enhancing the visitor experience whilst maintaining a safe and secure environment.”

 

King George III founded the Royal Academy in 1768. 

 

Separately, Signature has also been awarded a new contract to provide front-of-house services for a global financial institution at its head office in London.
