Rhino Security London supplies SIA registered doorman and hosts to several leading corporate   events  including SE1  (corporate events ), Systems Etc (sound / PA  exhibition), Diasco  Classic Car Show (classic cars )


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 have a 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.   For key personnel a strong background is essential but for lower level stewarding positions we prefer university students preferably from the same college too who are going to bond together and be able to master their security brief quickly.  We also find students are typically responsive to following instructions and have good interpersonal skills.


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.  Typically for corporate events and ticketed conferences and exhibitions  physique is going to be less important than strong interpersonal  and presentation skills


3. character. All Rhino Security staff are vetted and applicants who show in any way a aggressive or negative attitude are not selected.   Polite empathetic BUT firm security can often defuse a situation before it even arises and deter trouble makers.  For corporate events patience and calmness are likely to be at a  premium


4. 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.  Politeness’ is essential at all times both to defuse situations and to minimize inconvenience to other customers who may be in earshot.  For corporate events excellent interpersonal skills area must


5. dress code.  We strongly advocate security being dressed smartly and not under any circumstances in "bomber jackets" "caps" or other inappropriate attire.  High quality attire such as Jasper Conran suits would be appropriate for many upmarket corporate .  In general though we recommend black suits, black shirts, formal Oxford shoes (and overcoats in winter)  We are  flexible if client’s have particular dress requirements


6. 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.  For larger exhibitions the highest quality radio systems are required as a minimum.  Stewards in particular will often be acting as yours eyes and ears and need to be able to quickly communicate any issues back to the designated security control point(s)

As well as selecting the right security for a venue it is also essential to supply the right  "Head Doorman" or for larger exhibitions teams of  “Head Doorman”   The Head Doorman must have outstanding interpersonal skills and be able to work with event organizers who often require the highest standards

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. 


Rhino Security London  charge a flat £15 per hour per SIA registered security and £10 per hour for stewards. If you are interested in a confidential review of your possible security requirement  at your venue we recommend calling Shannon  O'Sullivan on 020 77735 2246. Any discussion will be treated confidentially and there is no obligation.
