Gallinet - The Team & The Training

Teamwork is at the heart of our success. Our staff posses many years of experience in the industries we serve and most have worked together for over 10 years, many now exceeding 20.

We enjoy the benefit of a very stable team, very low staff turnover and people dedicated to providing the best level of service possible.

training iconLow staff turnover and continuous training results in outstanding levels of service delivered to our clients.


Despite the considerable experience possessed by our staff their training is continuous and varied for each member of each department.

All Controllers are employed on a rolling roster involving day, night and weekend duties and they work on all contracts and deal with all clients and their assignments and staff ensuring that no individual controllers become experts on some services but less knowledgeable of others.

Training sessions are conducted each Monday to include examinations of the past weeks incidents managed for our clients. These sessions are conducted one to one with duty controllers and include reviewing call recordings and incident reports filed for clients in addition to rehearsing business continuity routines such as back-up generator deployment or switching failed services (broadband, voice comm's etc) to stand-by systems.

Gallinet is managed directly by it's owners
