Red Badge is 100% Kiwi owned and operated is widely recognised as a market leader, trusted to deliver a full range of security planning and staffing solutions for some of New Zealand’s best events! 
We’re on the lookout for enthusiastic and committed people to join us as casual Event and Security Team Members. 

These are casual positions, so you’re in control to pick up work for the dates and events that suit you, but availability to work flexible hours, including evenings, weekends, and holidays is a must – Most of the best events take place during these times!  

Some of our current vacancies include: 

Corporate Guards: Look after our event VIPs! You’ll have phenomenal customer service experience and be able to handle tricky situations whilst remaining professional at all times. You’ll act with maturity and be well presented. 

Barrier Guards: You’ll be in the thick of the action right at the front of the South Island’s hottest concerts! You’ll be on your feet for your entire shift with your eyes on the crowd to ensure everyone’s safety. This is a physically demanding role and the ability to safely lift someone from the crowd is essential.

Event Security: You’ll be responsible for ensuring the safety and security of all individuals at an event; you’ll do so through excellent customer service, conducting security screenings such as bag search, and offering general assistance to all event goers. 

We can provide training on all the above positions for the right candidates. 

What we need from you:

  • Excellent communication skills, able to interact with a diverse range of individuals in a positive and professional manner.
  • You’ll be adaptable, approachable, and able to think on your feet to find solutions.
  • Experience in a customer facing role (like hospitality or retail), in event security, or a related field is beneficial but not a requirement as training will be provided.  
  • This is a physical position which may see you standing and walking for extended periods, so you will need to have a good level of fitness to accommodate.   
  • These positions offer a pathway into more senior security positions and allow you to work towards gaining a Certificate of Approval COA (a requirement for security work in NZ). Due to the requirement of the COA license this does mean that applicants are required to be over 18 years of age to be considered.
