Training, Supervision, Support and Performance Monitoring

Efficiency is at the core of NDST's operations, and our commitment to training reflects this. As a registered Highfield Training Centre, each employee undergoes training aligned with Security Industry Authority Training guidelines and industry standards, supplemented by site-specific training tailored to the contract.

Recognising the critical need for effective management, NDST ensures each contract is overseen at a senior level. Our event operations team, based in our Surrey office, along with operations coordinators and security managers, guarantees seamless service delivery.

In collaboration with you, NDST establishes key performance indicators that are monitored through our soft systems. Results from this form the basis of regular service review meetings, encapsulating all elements of Quality Assurance performance within a comprehensive Service Level Agreement.

With a diverse and ongoing calendar of events, we have been able to retain high numbers of our staff across the years to ensure high quality and continuity.

Our History

The history of NDST goes back to 1993, when our director and managers headed security at music venues that hosted EMI bands in the UK and various Sadler’s Wells events alongside Diversity and front-of-stage management at the then Astoria venue. This time also saw us hold the sole security contract and management of the Roundhouse (pre-rebuild).

Evolving from music venues to outdoor events, we have worked across a wide variety of events in both sub-contractor and labour provision capacity, as well as direct contracts. Some to note would include the work we achieved at Silverstone between 2005-2013, including complete management for the security and stewarding of the paddock area which saw various capacity stages.

Many years of working at large music festivals has seen NDST send large staffing numbers to Boomtown, Boardmasters, Isle of White Festival, V Festival, Download, Creamfields, Latitude, Leeds Festival, Electric Picnic, Love Box, Reading, Glastonbury and more.


2020 Onwards

We used this year to reset and adjust our approach to our event calendar, taking ownership of our brand to grow, focussing on small to medium-capacity events. We have taken on events such as London Marathon, London Ride, London Pride, various religious festivals and Brighton Pride Village Party. We have also continued to work on selected events as labour provision, including for the Royal Opera House, NFL, Platinum Jubilee and the Queen resting.

One client we have been working with since 2019 holds small events across the UK which have featured music performances from Abba Revival and Tina Turner Revival to Queen Revival and Royal Orchestras. With this client, we are the sole provider for the 2-day events and manage a capacity of 4,000 with a well-trained security and pit team.

In 2023, along with keeping the before-mentioned clients, NDST has grown exponentially, working with prestigious clients such as On the Beach Brighton (10,000 capacity 6-day event), The Dome in Tufnell Park (600 capacity grassroots music venue), Hospitality in the Woods Fest, Cloud X Fest and AMEX GOLD UNSIGNED. 

Our portfolio includes managing the security and crowd demographics for headliners like Noel Gallagher, Bad Omens, The Ghost Inside, Neck Deep, Oxymorons, You Me at Six, Royal Blood, Craig David, and more. We also had the honour of overseeing crowd management and staffing for a few events that exceeded 20,000 capacities: Boundary Brighton and Elrow Town, London.
