Nightclub Security is at the venue to protect the nightclubs's owner, the premises, employees and customers, as well as to prevent any criminal activity within the club, and to immediately notify the police of any wrongdoing. If one of the employees is having an issue with a customer, you always side with the employee. If the nightclub has a Head Door Supervisor, he or she is the one who decides who gets into the club. 

Nightclub security personnel

Door Supervisors are ordinarily responsible for keeping law and order at nightclubs, bars, lounges, entertainment venues, events, clubs, arenas, and casinos. While day time door security is in demand at all times at most places, nightclub security normally work at night and in some cases covering weekend days.

People go to nightclubs to enjoy themselves. They want to have a few drinks, party with old friends, meet new people, and have a good time. Lots of people and alcohol is a recipe for trouble, and that’s why it’s important to have a high quality security staff. A good crew will track and resolve any potential problems, without a single spilled drink.

History Of Nightclub Security

Historically, bouncers have had the role of no-nonsense hard men. But as times changed, so did the role of bouncers. In the late 20th century the role of bouncers transitioned to one of conflict resolution through communication and limited physical force. The title of a door supervisor can earn great respect, and has been regarded as an honoured and important position.

Skills

Despite being commonly perceived as massive, unintelligent guys, good Door Supervisors are excellent communicators who earn the respect of their guests. A good Door Supervisor is one who can remind a guest of the house rules without twisting any arms. You must be confident in order to avoid being provoked by angry guests, and you must always remain professional and firm. A good judge of character can predict a guest’s behaviour, before any problems arise. 

Physical fitness

Security work is known for lots of standing, movement, and the occasional physical altercation. You should be fit, but keep in mind that an employer may hesitate to hire someone that is too thin.

Interpersonal skills

It’s important to be firm and assertive so that you can control guests without the need for physical aggression. You must earn the respect of your guests, and the best way to do that is to be courteous and reasonable. Conflict resolution training could prove to be invaluable in refining these skills.
