In the U.K., doormen are referred to as door supervisors and earn between 8 to 12 euros per hour, although some may make more, depending on the venue. Door supervisors are also sometimes referred to as bouncers or door stewards.

The job of the door supervisor is to safeguard those on the premises while minding the door and keeping out unauthorized people. Door supervisors can be licensed by the National Door Supervisors Registration Scheme and the Security Industry Authority (SIA). This requires completing a training course and passing the required exams. Training consists of around 30 hours of instruction. It is recommended that door supervisors be physically fit and have great customer service skills.
