Scottish door supervisor supplier joins BII

BII (British Institute Of Innkeeping) : 24 October, 2008  (Company News)
Option 1 takes advantage of the benefits of BII membership for its large staff of licensed door supervisors
One of Scotland's largest door supervisor suppliers, Option 1 Security, has enrolled 179 of its staff as members of BII, the professional body for the licensed retail industry.

Russel Kerr, managing director of Edinburgh-based Option 1, is so impressed with the level of support and the variety of benefits available from the new BII door supervisor company membership scheme that he wanted his workforce to take advantage!

Staff recruitment and retention are key priorities for Option 1 and, in a climate where good quality door supervisors are highly sought after, it is all the more important for companies such as Option 1 to be known as great to work for. Russel already invests heavily in his staff and he sees BII membership as a credible addition to his employee offering.

BII's new door supervisor membership category offers a wealth of benefits, including professional status, nationally-recognised qualifications and up-to-date information on legislation and other matters affecting the industry. It also gives access to free legal and financial helplines and discounts on:.

* Professional liability insurance and person accident insurance.
* BCP airport parking and AA breakdown cover.
* BUPA health insurance.
* Security clothing, footwear and equipment.
* Radios and earpieces.

Blueprint Training Solutions, a subsidiary of Option 1 Security, has been approved to deliver qualifications from BII's awarding body BIIAB since 2005. What's more, Russel himself sits on the council of BII Scotland so he is very familiar with the business benefits of being involved with BII.

Russel commented on his mass sign-up: "Option 1 was the first Scottish security company operating in the leisure sector to become an SIA [Security Industry Authority] approved contractor. We've always been one step ahead and I see giving BII membership to our door supervisors as continuing our commitment to quality and professionalism.

"Membership offers each of our staff the pride, recognition and professional status they deserve for doing what is an extremely demanding and, at times, dangerous job."

BII door supervisor membership is available in two categories. The basic requirement for either category is passing the Level 2 National Certificate for Door Supervisors or National Certificate for Door Supervisors (Scotland).

Categories and costs are as follows:.

Graduate Door Supervisor (no SIA badge) - £39 + VAT with no joining fee.
Associate Door Supervisor (with SIA badge) - £39 + VAT plus £25 + VAT joining fee.
