SIA Licensed Door Supervisors
Security Industry Authority SIA licensed door supervisors are of paramount importance. They are primarily required to work within the entertainment and leisure industries and so an adaptable nature and an ability to multi-skill are crucial. Door supervisors work within many licensed venues and environments including bars, clubs, theatres, cinemas and festivals as well as outdoor and sporting events. Hence, today’s door supervisor is required to deal with a variety of situations and event spaces.
The perception of the security industry has changed dramatically. The stereotypical “bouncer” image where you had to “look the part and handle yourself” is no longer relevant. Achilleus’ door supervisors operate in line with current industry guidelines and best practice including BS 7960:2009 – the official British Standard for Door Supervisors.
Training, Appearance & Skill Counts
SIA Door Supervisors must be customer and visitor-friendly, approachable, have excellent communications skills and be able to meet and greet your customers or guests. At the same time, a door supervisor must also be able to professionally handle conflict situations, diffusing a scenario before it escalates.
Today’s door supervisors must be good communicators and presentable with qualifications in:
- NVQ Level 2 in Door Supervision
- Customer service (Level 2 NVQ) Communication
- Conflict management (Level 2 City and Guilds)
- Problem solving
- Crowd management/Spectator safety (Level 2 and 3 NVQ)
