I have 2 sons who work the doors in England .
Part of their ongoing training is to be pleasant to the customers.
They still get the odd awkward moment.
They had to pay 195 to be able to do door work.The licensing law which made it a must for them to pay is THE SIA.
Which is coming to NI, maybe already here, so doormen/women here look out.
Yiz need proper training ;) complete with refresher courses in just about anything it seems.
Here is a link for any one who is doing door work.

Thanks for the link Carol. I didn't recognize the SIA acronym.

The link told me it's the Security Industry Authority. I'm not certain if it covers NI at the moment.

Hi Christopher , it is coming here, and anyone who does door work will need to train.

Punching a person in the head and dragging them out   does that not qualify as Common Assault ???

An offence of common assault is committed when a person either assaults another person or commits a battery.

An assault is committed when a person intentionally or recklessly causes another to apprehend the immediate infliction of unlawful force

If this SIA law is in place , it will make the bouncers accountable, you should check it out.
Good luck.

I knew bouncers in Belfast who were nothing more than hired hoodlums.
These scumbuckets had rap sheets for assault and that was why they were hired.  Over here we would sue the establishment.

I don't understand it. People are being insulted "You are not the type of people we want in this club", underage drinkers are allowed in and now you weren't allowed in because you were wearing furry boots. What's up with doorstaff and do the management of the places know what is happening?


Great point there mate.

I did the door in a few places a year back to supplement income fopr a holiday.  I gained an inseide insight into the industry.

Basically, people doing the door aren't paid very well hence it's their second job.  We could thus assume that their day job isn't a very important or satisfying one - thus their role as a clothing psychologist / power freak probably satisfy's a need in them.

There are another group for whom bouncing is their primary occupation.  They view being a clothing psychologist/power freak/bully as their ultimate goal in life and they see themselves as high achievers in the art.

Needless to say I havent done the door anywhere again.  I wouldnt wish to be branded as such because I'm not that guy.  I met a few nice bouncers but I stress a few.  Incidentally, the nice bouncers I met were genuine hard nuts - and not a shaved heaad or goaty beard between them either.
