For some time now we have championed the value of female security personnel and we are pleased to say a change is slowly creeping through the security industry. Finally the value of female operatives is being recognised within the Door Supervisor sector in particular.
Although often featured in event teams, within the bars and clubs sector the request for female Door Supervisors has historically been minimal. Times are changing with both the bigger operators and the independents now looking at the value of having a female included within their security teams.
Over the last 18 months we have seen the amount of females we deploy increase by 150%. The male - female ratio will always be a long distance apart as there are such a higher amount of badged males than females nationally , however it is fantastic to see female operatives increase their representation in the industry. What is yet more pleasing is the request for females is now higher than it has ever been.
We are very proud to say we have two female SIA licensed Door Supervisors who have worked very hard to achieve the position of Head Door Supervisor. It's important that we acknowledge hard work, in what historically was considered a male led industry.
