Security Guard Vs Door Supervisor: What’s The Difference?

Security Guards and Door Supervisors are similar but aren’t the same.

Take a look below at what the difference is between being a Door Supervisor and a Security Guard.

The Role of a Security Guard

Security GuardAs a security guard, you are not licensed to be working on premises that permit alcohol consumption. Although, you can work in a range of non-licenced premises instead, for example, retail stores. This means your role may vary depending on the industry you are working in, however, the main responsibility is to make sure everything runs smoothly for the premises you are working in.

The Role of a Door Supervisor

If you are a door supervisor, you are able to work on premises that are authorised by a local governing body. Typically venues that serve alcohol, for example, pubs and clubs. This role comes with the responsibility for protection, security, dealing with conflict and judging if someone is suitable to enter the licensed premises.
