GET STAFFED TURNS 1!

It’s our first birthday!!!!

In true Get Staffed UK style, we’ve taken the opportunity to applaud our Go-Getters for all the amazing things we’ve achieved over our first year in business!

Our journey started with Tom and Tom, hiring some shared office space in Cotton Court and a core team of staff who shared their vision.

Tom’s vision was to revolutionise the industry, breaking down the barriers which it faced.

  • Employees are under skilled
  • Employees are unreliable
  • Employees are demotivated

So, we started upskilling hospitality professionals. We provide full inductions so that individuals know exactly what to expect, which is then followed by a hospitality skills session. The Go-Getter is born. Our Go-Getters work hard on every shift, they know exactly what is expected of them and how to delivery exceptional service. Our employees are motivated and incentivised to work hard at every shift, and we ensure that they are happy in their roles by providing opportunities for them to feedback to us.

We then began to provide a clear progression route for our Go-Getters inclusive of further training, whether its site specific, cocktail or management. Since day 1…

ICON, Blackpool Pleasure Beach

The BRAND NEW “ICON” ride is launched for the very first time this week at Blackpool Pleasure and we’re over the moon to be providing staff for the grand opening.

The £16.25 million ride includes copper gold carriages, crafted using the finest German steel and using state-of-the-art engineering reaches speeds of a whopping 85km.

Speaking on the significant moment, Amanda Thompson OBE, Managing Director at Blackpool Pleasure Beach, said: “We have been on an incredible journey building this rollercoaster, seeing its towering presence on the park and entwining with some of our most popular rides, it really has been epic.

Nick Thompson, Deputy Managing Director of Blackpool Pleasure Beach adds; “Seeing ICON’s first run has been fantastic, it’s so exciting to see the carriages race through the tracks and meet its new heights.

“The weeks leading up to opening will see us put a few final finishing touches to the rollercoaster, ensuring we really do deliver a unique experience to the public when we open this spectacular world-first.”

This is the UKs first double launch rollercoaster, our team are very excited to be part of the grand opening and welcoming the VIPs invited down for the official launch dates.

We’ll keep you posted.

Meet the team – Chantelle Fidmont, Trainee Event Manger

We caught up with Chantelle, Trainee Event Manager about her journey. As a second year policing and criminal investigation student at UCLAN, Chantelle is pretty busy, but has been working with the Get Staffed family since September 2017.

Chantelle told us, ‘I love how welcome and appreciated I feel at Get Staffed UK, it feels like a family and I have met some of my best friends working here, there is never a shift that I am not laughing and having fun on.’

One of Chantelle’s main goals is to become an Event Manager for Get Staffed, so we’re pleased to announce that Chantelle is one of our new Trainee Event Management team and we’re extremely happy to have her on the team. Working with Get Staffed UK has taken Chantelle out of her comfort zone and boosted her confidence. She loves working with people and helping people and Get Staffed gives Chantelle the opportunity to deal with different types of people on a day to day basis.

Chantelle is organised, great at motivating others and we’ve been quite amazed at how she manages to work to the best of her ability on very little sleep. The perks of the hospitality industry. Whilst Chantelle believes she needs to work on her stress levels, we think that this spurs her to do the best job she can and allows her to work efficiently.

We asked Chantelle about her promotion and she told us ‘I’m super buzzing about it, excited to learn more things about being an Event Manager and help the company grow, whilst delivering the best service to our clients and customers!’

Our New Trainee Event Managers

This week, we’ve had a very exciting week and marked another milestone in our Get Staffed family calendar. We have promoted 10 Go-Getters to Trainee Event Managers and employed another Trainee Event Manager externally!

Huge congratulations to…

***Drum Roll Please***

Joey Bower, Natalie Milton, DK, Todd Isaacs, Matt Forshaw, Alice Kinsella, Matty Allen, Holly Madely, Chantelle Fidmont, Georgia Exley and Max McShane.

These members of the team have been through our training programmes and taken on many hours of work during their time with us. They have helped us to become the company that we are and through their hard work, we are able to take on more clients and replicate our business model throughout the rest of the UK.

We asked Max about his thoughts on his promotion, “I’m over the moon to be given the chance to further my career through this progression opportunity. To be a part of a team which holds teamwork and professionalism as two key qualities of work, whilst being able to feel comfortable and enthusiastic about working is something I find extremely special and unique about Get Group UK. This is the motivation for me to give my best for the company and the reason to which I applied for promotion”.

Chantelle said “THANK YOU! I am super buzzing about my promotion! I’m excited to learn more about being an Event Manager, help the company grow and deliver THE BEST hospitality services”.  Chantelle’s enthusiasm fills us with excitement.

Tom Craig, Operations Director, was delighted to have hired/promoted and a new team of Trainee Event Managers, stating “Our new Trainee Event Managers are carefully selected individuals who really believe in the company and are keen to help us with our journey. We are looking forward to teaching them key skills and developing their knowledge to allow them to deliver successful events with Get Staffed UK. We are happy to have been able to show the rest of our Go-Getters that progression opportunities are available. This is a proud moment for myself and Tom H as it shows how far we have come in the last 12 months and makes me even more excited for the next 12.”
