Peel Media has retained G4S Secure Solutions on the security contract for Media City UK after a competitive four-way pitch.
G4S has been involved in the project since construction began at Salford Quays in 2007. The company will base around 60 staff at the 36-acre Peel Media development from 2011.
Tony Chebrika, head of security for Peel Media, said: "Media City UK is an unprecedented development and the diversity of opportunities available to security personnel will be extremely rewarding. We look forward to strengthening our relationship with G4S and building a first class team as MediaCityUK starts to come to life."
Adrian Sigsworth, regional director for G4S Secure Solutions, said: "We are delighted to win this prestigious contract and be able to draw on our wide range of capabilities to provide an effective security solution. Our customer focused team will be a valuable addition to this exciting complex and will play a key role in keeping the local community safe and secure. We look forward to supporting the development of MediaCityUK and cementing our working relationship with the Peel Group."
