Since its opening in July 2019 The Standard, London has boldly propelled The Standard brand onto the international stage. The hotel playfully respects the building's history while creating new expansive spaces for the neighbourhood to play from our bars, terraces, restaurants, lounges and event spaces throughout the building
Housed in the former Camden Town Hall Annex in London’s thriving King’s Cross neighbourhood, the 1974 Brutalist building has been meticulously restored and sets the perfect stage for The Standard’s first hotel outside America. The Standard, London has 266 rooms ranging from our snug Cosy Core rooms to terraced suites with outdoor bathtubs overlooking the dramatic St Pancras station. On the ground floor, you'll find Double Standard, our street-facing bar and restaurant home of our legendary burger, Aperol Spritz slushy and our Bottomless Sunday Brunch. (Don't forget to book!) Next door is The Library Lounge, where our carefully curated library pays homage to the building’s original use, and, our Sounds Studio, home of our virtual culture hub, Sometimes Radio. Our 10th-floor restaurant, Decimo is back, where Chef Peter Sanchez-Iglesias’ showcases his live-fire cooking surrounded by 360-degree views of London - only accessible by our iconic exterior red pill lift.
At the heart of our hotels are, of course, the people who through their vibrancy bring our properties to life. We are now seeking an experienced and dynamic individual that will capture the essence of The Standard, London to join our team as our Security Manager (Nightlife).

But stress that hospitality and our guests experience is also a primary objective.
Within your role you will manage a large security team which also provide 24 hour coverage of the building and work in partnership with our Director of Security to implement property wide legislation, policies and practices which deliver a safe and compliant environment with best practice in mind. You will be passionate about delivering a quality Security service with a meticulous eye for detail, maintaining your team’s standards through coaching and training in order to achieve the highest levels of service and presentation; with an adaptive hands-on approach in order to lead, guide and continuously train a team of Security Officers to become part of a professional and highly trained Safety & Security team that is anything but standard and ensures safety is at the forefront of everybody’s minds!
This is a key position within our management and nightlife team and you will represent the hotel across notable industry and Security forums, work closely with the local police, transport, fire and safety services and ensure we have close working security relationships with our neighbouring nightlife businesses throughout the Kings Cross area.
