Nightclub Doorman

A nightclub door supervisor has a far more complex job than you might think. In general, they check ID and uphold the safety of people at the entrances of clubs, pubs, bars and licensed premises. You can earn up to £2,500 per month working full-time. Door supervisors look for people who illegally try to enter venues underage, but also check if people are drunk, are using drugs or hiding weapons. Nightclub door supervisors also check tickets, protect VIPs, and sometimes check if customers are wearing the correct dress code for the venue.
