Highfield's track record of vetting the people they "qualify" has spotty results.....
SIA licence holders may have to retrain after investigation finds malpractice among trainers
Publicans and door staff with a Security Industry Authority (SIA) licence may have to retrain after an awarding body has withdrawn more than 1,000 certificates.
This was just March of this year...Pretty good reason for Highfield to stay mum on the subject.

...and the Highfield link is now gone from the ICA website.
Which begs the question..where do they get their licensing authority from?
I am not familiar with British Law, but it appears that some form of gvt approved authority has to give an outfit like this the power to issue licenses.

Im having a hard time sorting out the players in this one, the governing/licensing bodies the Brits use have my head spinning a bit, but it involves the ICA:

To claim that there needs to be a specific authority such as the ICA is nothing more than a money making scam on their part."To sin by silence when one should protest makes cowards out of men".

Something else I have just noticed that strikes me as a discrepancy in the ICA.
From the ICA LinkedIn page they claim that they are a non-profit organisation which was founded in 2005.
However, I checked both Spencers companies listed on the ICA website against the Companies House on line checker (for those of you outside the UK - all UK limited Companies have to be registered with Companies house which is the UK company licensing authority).
Most interesting. It appears that that both his companies were formed in Sept/Oct 2012 not 2005 as the LinkedIn page suggests.
Furthermore, the fact that he has limited companies means that he cannot be a not for profit organisation.
They also claim to have between 200-500 hundred employees. For a new start up company I find that difficult to believe. This would also have tax/national insurance implications. However, I'll leave tax investigations to HMRC (UK tax authority).
More lies and deception

I'll be speaking with HMRC today at some point just to direct them at the information.
I doubt there's much they can physically (or want to do) providing Spencer's company is actually complying with UK tax laws (irrespective of how much of a deception Spencer tries) with the actual number of "employees" he claims he has on other websites."To sin by silence when one should protest makes cowards out of men".

HMRC informed via their website form submission service.
Full details of our concerns and information which the HMRC may or may not be interested in have been sent today."To sin by silence when one should protest makes cowards out of men".
