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