Head of Security
Set to be the No.1 destination for live music in the South West and the fourth largest arena in the UK, YTL Arena will be a brand-new and advanced 365-entertainment complex with interlinking facilities hosting the best in live music, sport, and other events. Right now, we’re setting the stage for a historic launch and getting the band together that will bring to life our incredible ambition and vision to put Bristol on the world stage for live music and entertainment.
Joining us before the doors open, you’ll utilise your knowledge and expertise to shape solid security strategy, infrastructure and procedures that align with our policies, industry best practice and legislation for the arena and beyond. And that’s just the lead-up to day-to-day operations!
For you, this is a career defining opportunity and your chance to introduce new ways of working for a multi-million-pound business asset and to help create unforgettable live experiences for 1.4m annual visitors across 140 live events. We want to put your ideas centre stage so we can wow our crowds, crew and staff and deliver an exceptional customer experience!
Your experience in events, stadia or in crowded places, within a law enforcement, military or private security organisation is just the ticket. You know what makes event owners, promoters, and key stakeholders tick. You love to lead from the front with a can-do attitude, and it’s obvious you’re serious about security.
It goes without saying that you’ll be well-versed or qualified in counter-terrorism and security risk assessment. Your Security Management qualification or equivalent experience will see you write exceptional security plans and risk management. And as for conventional crime and non-criminal disruptive activities – you know the drill.
Ours is a dynamic, high-energy environment where your insight will shape success on stage and across the South West.
