Job Application

SIA Door Supervisor

Our usual business of looking after the safety and security of 25 million people across sporting events, concerts and festivals is, of course, on hold right now. Whilst we wait patiently for normal service to resume, we are deploying our casual SIA Door Supervisor workforce into various other types of work and some of these projects have resulted in us needing additional staff to join our Edinburgh team.

We can offer work that is available at COVID-19 vaccination centres at the Royal Highland Centre and further venues still to be confirmed. These venues operate 7 days per week, for the length of the vaccine roll out programme. We have plenty of shifts available; these are generally 12 hours long (typically 7:30am-7:30pm on days, 7:30pm-7:30am on nights). The work is mainly based indoors with comfortable staff welfare provisions on every site.

Once events resume, we can offer continued and steady work at excellent venues in Edinburgh, such as the Royal Highland Centre. Whether this be a job for you to see through the pandemic or the start of a bright career in events and crowd management with the leading services supplier, and whether you’re looking for 1 shift or 5 shifts per week (or anything in between) we’d love to have you on board.

Please note:-

  1. You will need a valid in-date SIA Door Supervisor licence in order to be considered for this role
  2. You will be required to undertake a video interview. Please only apply for this role if you are willing to take a video interview.
