Rhino Security London supplies SIA registered doorman to several leading London bar, clubs and live music venues.

We choose, dress, and  our doorman in line with our clients requirements.  All our staff are SIA registered  in line with current UK legislation which includes police vetting and appropriate training including, health & safety, fire safety, first aid, crowd control techniques and  other necessary skills.

To ensure our staff fit our client requirement's.  Security are often a venue's interface with the customers and need to be hosts as much as anything else.   We  look closely at

1. background.  We strongly prefer staff who havea proven  track record of  commitment, honesty and reliability.  Typically our SIA registered doorman will be in full time employment in a responsible professional job  (eg teacher, ex army) with a stable home life. 

2. physique.  Whilst it is not essential for security to be well built it can be helpful as a deterrent.  However some of our clients prefer lighter built security staff particularly for hosting or VIP roles.

2. character. All Rhino Security staff are vetted and applicants who show in any way an aggressive, negative attitude or poor personal habits are not selected.   Polite empathetic BUT firm security can often defuse a situation before it even arises and deter trouble makers.

3.. interpersonal skills.  All Rhino Security are taught the importance of being polite at all times even when having to eject patrons from a venue or refuse entry.  This includes when customers may be being abusive.  Politness is essential at all times both to defusw situations and to minimise inconvenience to other customers who may be in earshot

4. dress code.  We strongly advocate security being dressed smartly and not under any circumstances in "bomber jackets" "caps" or other inappropriate attire.  Appropriate will vary from venue to venue from for example T shirts in a gay venue to Jasper Conran suits at venues such as Mezzo or fore VIP protection.  In general though we recommend black suits, black shirts, formal Oxford shoes and overcoats in winter 

5. equipment. Again this varies from venue to venue but in general we recommend Motorola 2 way radio with covert earpieces (bar /venue manager also to be supplied one).  Hand held metal detectors ("wands") can also be desirable at late night venues

As well as selecting the right security for a venue it is also essential to supply the right  "Head Doorman" The Head Doorman as well as co coordinating his team needs to have the trust of the venue's management team and owners.  In addition the Head Doorman has to often act as Door Host or Door Selector  which requires an excellent understanding of the venues client base.  We have a saying "If you let trouble makers in you have already failed at your job"!

One of the key financial advantages of using good security and Rhino Security London in particular is that you will find your customers are happier and hence more likely to return AND you may well need less security than you currently employ.  If you are unsure of whether you need security let us have a look - you may just need security on an occasional basis (eg Saturdays) or to clear out a particular problem.

Rhino Security London  charge a flat £15 per hour per SIA registered security.

Rhino Security London has supplied door teams to several leading venues including The Fridge, and Brixton Academy (now called Brixton 02) as well as smaller nightclubs such as Peacock Bar.  We have also provided "special" teams to several high profile venues to deal with particular situations and groups of individuals on a confidential basis.
