Our Story

Barringtons began in 1991, and over the past 25 years we have grown our offerings to serve an expanding range of clients. We started with a targeted focus on risk management and investigation in the hospitality industry, becoming a trusted partner to many organisations.


Now, along with a wider focus on a number of different industries, we've expanded the services we offer. We are now not only market leaders in risk management and investigations, but also in training, compliance management, security, recruitment and personnel vetting, a set of complimentary services we believe work together to improve the way our clients operate.



Everything we do at Barringtons is directed by the philosophy of "Best People. Best Practice. Best Choice." It's a selection of words that describes not only the path taken as we've grown, but the direction we'll continue to take to preserve the our position as market leaders. Here's why:


Best People - Our people are the reason we continue to be successful, and their efforts since our inception are the reason we keep growing. Their commitment to providing professional, ethical and efficient service strengthens the Barringtons brand across industries.


Best Practice - Because we supply a diverse service offering across some of Australia's biggest industries, Barringtons is often benchmarked against much larger companies. Despite this, we are used to setting the standard by which our competitors are judged.


Best Choice - We want the Barringtons brand to represent the best choice across a variety of services and industry specialisations. By building a reputation for providing quality services, we will continue to satisfy our clients.



Since forming with a directed focus on the unique risk management concerns in the hospitality industry, the hard work from our experts has seen us evolve across a range of departments. Our core services are:


Training - Since 2001, we've provided accredited training for both individuals and businesses looking to develop their careers or workforces. Our areas of expertise range from vocational training for a number of traineeships through to industry-specific courses such as Armed Robbery Survival Skills, First Aid, Food Safety training and more. Importantly, we also have the facilities to develop customised solutions on site.


Compliance management - From our innovative compliance management solution, Smartek, through to being able to provide our clients with guidance and expertise, Barringtons are able to ensure compliance is maintained without placing any unnecessary burdens on employees. Our aim isn't simply to provide a service, we strive to become trusted partners of each client that we work with on compliance, improving productivity and efficiency, and minimising the risks that come with ignoring this critical aspect of running a business.


Investigations - Our team shares professional advice, knowledge, resources and investigative services for businesses of any size. We have a significant track record in this department and regularly apply our expertise across a range of industries.


Security - We are leading providers of a wide range of security services, including training, manpower and security risk assessment services. Barringtons have trusted experience and expertise to ensure your business is as safe and secure as possible.


Recruitment - With a motto of "service to the service industry", Barringtons can provide all types of recruitment services for the hospitality industry, from bar and line staff to management.


Risk management - Our risk management team provides a wide range of diverse services and solutions that are designed to give businesses the very best levels of protection, based on what threats are most likely to affect them. These services include assessing public liability and Work Health & Safety, carrying out emergency training and crisis management planning.


Background checks - We offer security screening for job candidates, a necessity when considering applicants for roles that require security clearance or that will be in a position of trust. These employees will often go on to be trusted with sensitive company information and company assets, including financial assets. Failing to check their background thoroughly could result in major issues down the road - both in terms of financial and reputational damage.


Vetting - We are a prime provider of security vetting services to both the Australian Government Security Vetting Agency (AGSVA) and a range of other businesses. Our highly skilled vetting team are experts in their field, with experience across a variety of industries and businesses. This ensures that every client of Barringtons receives the best service in accordance with industry best practice standards.


The growth and success of the Barringtons brand isn't just across industries and service types, but throughout the country as well. Since 1991, we've ensured our services are tailored specifically to Australian industries and businesses, with a major focus on hospitality, mining, building and retail sectors, among many others.


To ensure we meet the expectations of our clients in states and territories across the country, we have offices in key locations throughout Australia. This means that no matter where our clients are located, we can provide a single point of reference for significant portions of operational requirements.
