Door Supervisors



Door Supervisors need to have good verbal communication, people skills, and the ability to defuse any situation. Be able to look after themselves and the customers in the premises they are looking after. In my experience, height and looking intimidating isn't a key factor in being a good door supervisor. Having good communication skills and being able to look after the customers in the premises is more important.

Having good door supervisors looking after a venue makes the customer experience more enjoyable, gives the venue a good reputation which in turn attracts more customers. We at Spartan 24 Hour Security look for quality when taking on a door supervisor and are very good at quickly spotting a plonker. Talking to someone for a length of time gives you some idea of their character. Then giving them a shift covering a venue and observing how they interact with customers and help defuse situations tell you if they are going to be any good. Not everyone can do this job, some try but fail and end up getting badly hurt.

The best door supervisor I've worked with was 5ft 5ins tall, had a great personality which shone through when dealing with customers. Was very helpful and was on first name terms with a lot of them. He was also very handy if things did get out of hand and was a 5th dan in karate. Spartan 24 Hour Security provide professional, high quality door supervisors both male and female. For nightclubs, bars, pubs, events, concerts.      

Hotel Security



Working in hotel security can be a rewarding job, a high level of common sense and being a people person makes the job a lot easier. Security guards protect guests and their valuables as well as hotel staff. They usually patrol the hotel, it’s car park and sometimes the grounds. They also help out on reception when needed and greet new guests and answer any questions. That’s why when working in hotel security it’s vital to know you’re way round the hotel and know how it runs, including procedures and hotel policies. In hotel security you have to have good verbal and written skills and a lot of patience, in my experience some guests can be trying. You need to blend in and enhance the smooth running of the hotel.

Being observant and making sure guests are adhering to the rules of the hotel is vital, so sometimes you’ll have to be assertive but staying professional at the same time. Some guests don’t like being told and cause trouble with other guests and staff. They are guests at the hotel so need to abide by the hotels rules and it’s your job to make sure they do and not harm the property, staff and other guests. When talking to a troublesome guest, keep the tone of your voice constant, be polite and listen to what they have to say. If the person isn’t a hotel guest, depending on the circumstances and hotel policy, the security guard may evict the person or persons from the hotel. If it’s a hotel guest and you can’t sort the situation out inform the manager or whoever is in charge of the hotel at the time. Regardless of whether you’re a security contractor or directly employed by the hotel the manager is in charge.

Security guards might also need to evict loiterers or trespassers from time to time. Upon request, security guards should escort employees or guests to their vehicle, especially if it’s late at night. Communication is vital if you’re working in a large hotel and most staff carry a radio, so always make sure your radio is on so you can act accordingly if there is a problem. Most hotels have CCTV some of which is state of the art which makes the job easier. Fellow employees sometimes need assistance in dealing with a belligerent guest and call security for help. Guests might report a disturbance originating from another room or a suspicious character loitering on the stairs.

Hotel security work for the main part is an enjoyable and rewarding job, most hotels have a good clientele, so the most trouble you get is a noise complaint, trouble in the bar or restaurant and most are alcohol related.
