Our SIA Response Team Members are vital to our clients and their venues / events and even more so now. So, this position at this stage of us going back into events is only open to those that are already qualified and experienced with an NVQ Level 2 Spectator Safety and SIA Door Supervisors license, that have enthusiasm, common sense, a strong work ethic, a desire to work, and like to work within a team.


Achilleus Security (London) Response Teams are teams of SIA Licensed Door Supervisors with enhanced training, skills, and the overall temperament to deal with the specific needs of this sometimes highly demanding role. Response Team operatives operate in sometimes varied roles, and in a lot of cases response team operatives fill the gap between the event stewarding teams and the police.  Duties may include:

  • General Customer Services, including highly emotional and volatile situations.
  • Searching of people and locations
  • Crowd Management
  • Segregation of fans
  • Physical Intervention / Restraint
  • Physical Ejection
  • Conflict Management & dealing with aggression
  • Monitoring / managing ingress and egress points.
  • Maintaining Social Distancing and COVID Safety protocols.
  • Providing Information and direction.
  • Ensuring crowd safety plans and procedures are adhered to.
  • Maintaining Social Distancing & PPE Conditions.
  • Reporting any suspicious behaviour.
  • Monitoring Crowds for distress, overcrowding and disorder.
  • Ingress control – ticket validation, accreditation checks, and queries.
  • Egress control – Observing safe egress from areas, including emergency evacuation.
  • Reporting and recording details of accidents, irregularities, near misses, or incidents.
  • Responding to accidents, incidents as directed.
  • Maintaining safe working environments, and health and safety management.


This role does come with added elements of personal risk, it can also be extremely demanding, but also rewarding. It also has the opportunity to be very varied in the roles and responsibilities. It is also highly probable that team members will be involved with highly emotional and emotive situations, and also dealing with high levels of aggression and possibly violence. So being able to keep a level head in a crisis or emotive situations is a must.

So it is vital that candidates that apply for this position must be aware of that, as for some this role will not be suitable. We do offer additional training for this role, so the right candidate must be prepared to give time for enhanced training and to learn new skills.
