    Just wondering if anyone does/or ever has done event stewarding at concerts/football matches etc? I've seen a job advertised, pays about £6p/h with £8p/h for event security stewards but just wondered if anyone had any experience good or bad?

    Do you need a SIA certificate for doing event security? I wouldn't mind working as a security steward at a gig.

    My friend event stewards at Chelsea FC on matchdays.
    He didn't need any special quals etc and they train him on the job too and help him towards getting quals like that.
    Go for it

    EDIT: If it requires anything special like SIA then it should say on the app, if not go for it. Best of luck

    I'm just guessing but pretty sure that event security would require the sia certificate. Event stewards on the other hand I think get first aid training with inductions etc but no need for the sia badge

    Been doing this work for 5 years now all over the UK, both with and without my SIA badges (Door, CCTV and Close Protection), and recommend it. PM me if you want to know more about a certain company; I have had good and bad experiences.

    I have a friend who does it. She had no experience so I assume they trained her themselves. She doesn't get much work, particularly in winter, but she seems to enjoy it well enough.

    I have done some event Stewarding during the Olympics and have worked at other venues including Wembley Stadium, Charlton Athletic FC (The Valley), Notting Hill Cannival. I have a Level 2 qualification in Stewarding at Spectators Events. I also have SIA Security Licence (Guarding), with Retail and Corporate security experience. I am interested about the vacancy and will like to know more.

    Yeah, Preferably the Door Supervisor one since most work is in licensed venues (Sells booze)
