Evening all,

Could someone help me out .....

Basically, my background is military and then private security in the Middle East. However, between contracts I did some event/festival security (Tidy Weekender in Prestatyn, Leeds Festival and more recently Cereals down near Lincoln) for contracted security companies.

Now, I'm very interested in this field as a career. So, my question is, do the event organisers hire any security positions direct (for example, a security manager,  personal security for artists) for festivals, tours, events, concerts or is the whole lot outsourced?

I'd appreciate very much anyone who could give me a steer in the right direction.....

 

Thanks,

 

Paul

Hi Paul,
Security managers are 99% of the time a nominated person from the company that holds the security contract for event.
As for CP work for bands etc most is done through reputable companies and networking.

Thanks Mojo,

Do you happen to know any of these companies off the top of your head, that supply CP to artists?

I agree with the fact that the security managers are the 99 percent of the time a nominated person from the company that hlds the security contract fo the event.It is mostly done through reputed companies.
