How Do I Become a Club Attendant?

Dan Cavallari

The specific duties of a club attendant can vary, which means the qualifications you will need in order to become a club attendant can also vary. Generally, you should be willing and able to interact with club guests as well as staff, and you should be able to assess the needs of guests in order to address them quickly. You may be required to serve drinks or bus tables once you become a club attendant, or you may be responsible for bookkeeping, payroll, inventory management, and employee management.

You may not need any specific level of education in order to become a club attendant, though earning a high school diploma or equivalent qualification is usually preferred because basic math skills and exceptional communications skills are almost always required. You should be prepared to work night shifts if you want to become a club attendant, and you will likely spend most of your shifts on your feet while communicating with staff and guests. An outgoing personality will be most fitting for this role, as will organizational skills and the ability to multitask. A working knowledge of restaurant functions and processes may be required, and bartending experience is usually a plus.

You can become a club attendant by taking a lower level position in a club and working your way up through the ranks. You may, for example, start as a bouncer, a bar back, or even a kitchen worker. As time progresses and you are able to learn more skills, you may be able to take a position as a bartender. A club attendant may be considered a managerial position, or it may be considered a lower-level position which will answer directly to management. It is best to find out what the job entails for each establishment to which you are considering applying for work.

Certain licenses or certifications may be required if you want to become a club attendant, though many of them can be earned as you work. A food handler's license, for example, may be required of you; this license allows you to handle food that will be served to guests in a manner that is safe and appropriate. Bartending training may be required, or at least alcohol education training. In some cases, you may be required to take first aid and CPR training, as well as self-defense training courses in order to qualify for a position as a club attendant.
