When Get Staffed UK first began, we were really interested in getting students on board. We contacted the university and we were really happy with the response we received. Before we knew it, we had quite a few Tourism, Hospitality and Event students signed up from UCLan, including Sian Summers.
Sian gained a huge 13 GCSEs at school, 3 AS levels at college and then left to become a Conference & Banqueting Coordinator for The Jockey Club, during this time Sian gained a Level 3 NVQ in hospitality and used her grades and experience to get into university.
Sian loves working within events and is due to achieve a 2:1 in BA (Hons) Event Management at the end of the month. Sian has worked with us in a variety of venues, from bars to huge conference and event venues. Although Sian has had to move back to Liverpool, she still works for us as much as she can and misses the variety that Get Staffed offered her.
Sian is currently making applications for Operations Management roles within large leisure venues in Liverpool such as the Echo Arena and Anfield Stadium, a role which we’re confident she can fulfill. Sian stated ‘the experience of working at a variety of different venues with Get Staffed UK has been extremely beneficial to me, it’s made me realise how not everywhere within the industry is run the same and helped me to evaluate the pros and cons of different management styles’.
It has been a pleasure to have Sian on our team over the past year, as an approachable, organised and self-motivated individual. Sian is an influential person, who is a natural leader and her enthusiasm towards means she is a valuable member of the team.
