Security & Events Traineeship

About the events security industry

The private event 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 an average 5% staff turnover will be looking to recruit about 60,000 new entrants annually. The industry can offer a wide range of job options and shift patterns to suit all ages and genders.

Without requiring specific skills or experience, the event security industry seeks accredited candidates 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.
