Suggest someone or apply by yourself: "Sicherheitsmitarbeiter des Jahres"


In the coming year, the Bundesverband mittelständischer Sicherheitsunternehmen e. V. and COREDINATE would once again like to focus on the numerous security employees who carry out their meaningful and important work every day. Like in 2024, we will ask you to vote for your candidate for Sicherheitsmitarbeiter des Jahres in 2025. 

At the start of the application phase, you will find information about the process, the jury, prizes and application on this page. We look forward to receiving your application! 

This is the procedure

The application or proposal is made in German language through one of the two forms on the German version of this page. An application is valid only if it is filled in completely and truthfully. All employed or self-employed security guards who are at least 18 years old are eligible to participate.

The application phase runs from 6 February to 8 March 2024, after which there will be a pre-selection of three to six candidates who will be sent to the final round by the jury. From 12 March, it will then be up to all of you: you can cast your vote for the pre-selected candidates here. Voting ends on 17 April. The winner will be announced on 18 April. The award ceremony will take place on 26 April 2024 at the BVMS AGM in Nuremberg. 

Don't forget: Please read our conditions of participation before you apply yourself or nominate a candidate.

The finalist with the most votes from the online voting will be crowned "Sicherheitsmitarbeiter des Jahres". The award ceremony will take place on 26 April 2024 in Nüremberg.
