Traineeship in Security and Events (19-24 year olds)
The Private Security Industry is growing and by 2020 will employ in excess of 400,000 staff. That number can be doubled if you include ‘in house’ security operations and stewarding and due to natural wastage (5% staff turnover) will be looking to recruit about 60,000 new entrants annually.
The industry can offer a wide range of job options from full time, part time, flexible shifts, weekend and night work to suit all ages and genders from a range of job roles, including corporate, construction, door supervision, retail, CCTV and events. Without requiring specific skills or experience, the industry seeks candidates with basic Level 2 accreditation to meet government regulation and those who can demonstrate effective communication skills (written and verbal), a smart presence, good attitude and a track record of punctuality.
The events sector is worth £39.1 billion to the UK economy and covers exhibitions, festivals, music and sporting events. More than 7000 major outdoor events are held each year in the UK.
Stewarding tends to involve crowd management and customer service. Ideally event stewards should hold a level 2 NVQ qualification in Spectator Safety which is provided during this traineeship programme. Pay tends to be around £6.50-£8 per hour for these roles and sometimes more depending on the event.
During the traineeship the learners will be working at live events and will have a real opportunity of going into employment.
