Fun place to work

I’ve been with company for over 10 years now and I’ve grown so much working with them.I’ve worked at various events, bars and venues for Bridgegate. They make me feel appreciated, valued at the company.

Amazing area manager and head door

I think this company does vary between doors but my full time door is amazing. The head and deputy take as many teaching moments as possible and even let their staff teach them new things, there's no overly authoritative atmosphere. The area manager is very supportive and acts like a friend to you over any form of boss. Best doors I've worked

Great working atmosphere and something fun always happens

Was a great place to work, had a phone call was told to come down that night, had a conversation with the manager and he said 'do you have badge on you, want to start tonight' so i said 'yes' and jumped straight into my first shift that same night. The nightclub scene was eye opening for me. I met many great people and have great memories from my time.


Great atmosphere if you enjoy meeting random people


Long hours outside during winter, if you're working front door

Current employee

I got the job because I worked for the previous area manager before and she asked me to join. It’s only weekend work so not enough to live on but it’s extra money to top up my salary. Always paid on time but occasionally it’s not correct. Don’t get payslips but always work available. There’s been sometimes I haven’t had shifts but that was because the area manager left but after a few months the new one called me up and I work every weekend. Been a few hiccups along the way but otherwise ok. I do get sent all over the place. Would like to have a set venue, otherwise fine. I have a cp license but work on doors of venues on weekends. A lot better than my other retail security job (I work for 3 companies)Can be stressful when there’s an incident but that’s part of the job. Generally no problems working for bridgegate. Some of the staff are lazy or not good otherwise fine.


Free food at most venues, paid on time, plenty of shifts available


Not always paid correctly, have to request payslips

One Of The Better Firms

Excellent company to work for with capable supervisors and management team in place. Never any issues getting paid, as in, always got paid on time and always the correct amount, any discrepancy, just send them a text & it would get sorted.

Good company to work for.

Good company to work for. Plenty of shift work. If you're sick, they happily find cover. Shifts are mainly bars and nightclubs. Some locations are one man, 2 man door etc depending on the venue.


Always shifts available.

Outstanding security company to work for!

Joined a team based in fleet, quickly learned who I was working with and what they expected and from then on tried to progress which happened nicely! Always supported by my area manager and head office. Moved on from head door a while ago but still go back to help.out and earn some extra every so often. Fully recommended company to work for.


Clear objectives, always supported, paid on time every time

Not bad company

Area manager is not to be seen or heard of and I guess if hears about this I won’t be needed again but it’s true. No welfare checks or support of just asking how the teams are doing. Defo seen when a problem though and very unprofessional.

Bridge Gate security

The area manager can be arrogant and patronising. Don't ever think that the venue you are placed at will be your prement venue as he will move you around venues which will change your working hours. They remove £7 off your wages for insurance without telling you and have to jump through hoops to claim on it. The self implode payment manger is exactly the same as the area manager and think they are better than the other staff. You will be constantly under staffed at venues and don't bother trying to phone the area manager he never picks up but will get ahitty with you if you don't pick up his phone call

Brilliant company.

Before I started with this company, I heard mixed reviews from people. But as always you have to make up your own mind and see it for yourself, so I did. I've had absolutely no issues whatsoever with this company! Been there for 4yrs, they've looked after me in terms of work, and it has all been very professional on both sides. They give me the hours if they are available, and it's not difficult really is it?!?! You do your hours, be part of a team, do a good job, enjoy your work and get paid on a set day, job done. It's extremely easy to get hold of someone from HR, if there should be any issues, they get resolved immediately.


Great team work and venues.
