Bouncers work by per night. You dont get "called out" if something happens.
First you need to be 18 since your working at a venue that sells drink.
Second you need to get your SIA certificate, as dose any other kind of security staff http://www.sia.homeoffice.gov.uk/Pages/h ome.aspx
Then it depends on your employer. You will either work for a club or you will work for a company that covers a number of clubs and they will either have you on rotation if your full time with them or tell you what club/event to go to if they need an extra person their.
You normally get paid by the hour. It doesn't increase much even if you have been doing it for years. For most people I know its just a part time job on the weekends to supplement their main income.
