What is the role of a Door Supervisor?

First things first, it’s important to remember that you cannot work as a Door Supervisor without an approved SIA License. Your SIA License will be issued to you on application after appropriate training standards have been accepted by the Security Industry Authority. This rule applies to all Security Industry jobs including, CCTV Operators, Security Guards and Close Protection Personnel or body guards.

Door Supervisors are most commonly appointed to manage the entrance to public venues like night clubs, bars or more specific one-off public, and occasionally private events. It’s important to remember here that the Door Supervisor is there to ensure that everyone attending the event, bar or club has a safe and enjoyable evening that’s not spoiled, albeit for the most part unintentional, disruptive behaviour.

Door managers are the first port of call at any event and on the whole, providing they are doing their jobs properly, they are the first ‘friendly’ face of the occasion to ensure the general public have a pleasant evening.

As well as eliminating problematic situations from escalating by managing perceived intoxication levels, skilled Door Supervisors also work as mediators. Mediation is a technique whereby reasonable levels of communication are achieved without the need for physical contact by either party. This means having the ability to instil calm into a situation, without the need for any form of restraint, or the need to call on the law to intervene.

As well as protecting the public’s safety expert door staff will also have been trained to manage panic situations like fire or terrorist threats, the prevention of crime scene contamination, ‘non-harm’ physical intervention techniques, UK licensing rules and drug legislation.
