Sports, music and events are coming back and at G4S you have an opportunity to be part of the events you love! Join G4S Events as a Safety Steward for an experience you’ll never forget! London is a key location for G4S Events and we have an exciting opportunity for you to join us at the O2 Arena this year!

Holding 22,000 visitors, the O2 is the home to the world's most popular music, sport and entertainment events and so much more - this is an exciting opportunity to come and join our team with evening and weekend work available.

Our Safety Stewards provide a visible reminder that safety is our number one priority for visitors and staff. Come and join us for a varied role that could be inside or outside, on your feet showing people where to go, checking tickets at entry, monitoring the crowd or managing the car parking facilities. Wherever you are, you’ll be the friendly and helpful face representing events at the O2 Arena.

We are looking to recruit Events Security Officers to join our team to support those events that are continuing in a safe, secure way in line with government guidelines but also in readiness for when the UK returns to normal and the events industry kicks off again! We have work across the sports and music industries, spanning the whole of the UK - so you will have the opportunity to be a part of the events you love.

London a key location for G4S Events - not only could you be working at a Premier League Football Club or a high profile cricket ground and events venue but you will also have an opportunity to be part of broader music and sporting events across the region. If you're open to travel we even have opportunities to be part of some of the biggest events across the UK.

You will need to be available of an evening or weekend, but the broader G4S Events business can also offer you opportunities to suit your lifestyle, whether it’s flexible ad hoc hours, or working 40+ hours a week, we have a wide range of shifts available. 

As a Security Officer you will be responsible for securing the venues, staff and visitors for our customers. This may include: 

  • Carrying out pre and post event safety checks ensuring compliance with safe working procedures
  • Searching visitors on entry to venues
  • Ensuring that no prohibited or restricted items are taken into the secured zones within the venues
  • Monitoring visitor / crowd movements and behaviour to identify potential issues or incidents and to take action as necessary
  • Dealing with visitor / crowd disruptions
  • Securing licenced / hospitality areas

You will need to hold your SIA Door Supervisor licence - if you don't have this you can still be considered as a Steward so please see our other opportunities. If this sounds like something you want to be involved in, you will just need to complete the following application form and one of our Recruiters will be in touch to discuss the next steps. Our recruitment and selection process is currently being conducted remotely which will include a video interview.

Given the nature of the industry, we do need to ask some questions for security and compliance purposes, but don’t worry - you will only need to complete them once.
