Tyler Browne, Senior Event Manager

We are very excited for our Senior Event Manager, Tyler. He’s recently gained an Internship through his Event Management course at UCLan at the second largest Marriot hotel in the world.

Tyler has been an invaluable member of the team at GetStaffedUK and is about to embark on a new journey to Texas, USA. Tyler orginially studied Sports Journalism, but as his career and enthusiasm progressed within the Hospitality Industry, he changed courses to Event Management to pursue his passion. As a massive fan of American Football and extremely good player, this is a very good move for Tyler (although we’ll miss him dearly), he’s looking forward to being part of a public team over in America.

Tyler’s new role will involve lots of training and learning, which he’s delighted about stating “looking through my personal program outline makes me twenty times more excited”. As Restaurant Supervisor, the topics covered include Restaurant Operations, Private Dining and Shift Lead Training.

When we spoke to Tyler, he couldn’t wait to tell us more about the role. “Working with GetStaffedUK has helped me an astronomical amount, without the company I wouldn’t have the skills and knowledge of the industry which I have today… this is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I am very grateful for GetStaffedUK helping me to reach my goals and get me where I am today. It has developed me into a forward thinking person, I work one step ahead, and we all know when I’m leading a shift nothing goes wrong” 😉

As Senior Event Manager, Tyler feels he is prepared for his new role. He is always ready to take a step back from a situation and provide solutions, a transferable skill, he will be able to take with him into any future role.

“The best thing about my current role is that is has enabled me to get really involved with the company as it grows. My top 3 highlights are: being the manager at Creamfields 2018 & meeting Gigs backstage, getting promoted twice in a year and our management team events. I have such amazing memories with GetStaffedUK’

We must admit, they’re three stand out highlights! Well done Tyler and good luck with your new role! 🙌

 

2018 Round Up!

2018 has been an incredible year for GetStaffedUK. We’ve exceeded client expectations, which is demonstrated through the testimonials we have received, the recommendations which our clients have given to their sister venues and we’ve even managed to improve the perception of staffing agencies on the whole within the areas which we have worked. This is all down to our incredible team! We’ve gained many new clients over the past 12 months, thanks to our Go-Getters who are in and out of different venues, week in, week out – as well as our Business Development Director, Junior who came on board in July.

 

Our 2018 in numbers, we have promoted:

3 Event Managers to Senior Event Managers

4 Trainee Events Managers to Event Managers

11 Go Getters to Trainee Event Managers

We have brought on 3 new roles:

Business Development Manager, Junior Beckett

Events & Logistics Coordinator, Amie Birkett

Training Manager, Chloe Brookes

and our Social Media & Marketing Manager Georgie, has come on board full time

 

At GetStaffedUK, we are aiming to revolutionise the hospitality industry. We are aiming to improve staff reliability, retention and quality. Each of our new roles is helping us towards our mission and it’s so exciting to see the business develop so quickly.

In order to achieve our goals, we knew we needed to do more than show that we could staff events – so we developed GetTrainedUK, and GetGroupUK was born! What a whirlwind of a year it’s been. We appointed Chloe to manage our training as we grew rapidly over the summer… and our office team grew and grew until we could no longer stay in our little cosy office.

We moved into our new office which could just about accommodate 5 of us, and then moved again, and now we have the entire basement at Cotton Court. We are so proud of how far we have come. This environment has really made a different to our work and productivity, not only do we have more space for ourselves, but we have meeting space, a cosy area and ping pong – all of which is very beneficial for when our team want to pop in and see us. It’s great to have our open door policy and for our team to know that they can pay us a visit whenever they need to!

Massive shout out to our Senior Event Manager Sean who helped us fill our rotas and complete our day to day tasks over the summer; from Lytham Festival to Creamfields and everything in between – Sean you were brilliant!

We have grown more than 350% on year 1, servicing over 150,000 hours of work and working with over 70 clients.

We are over the moon with the new clients who we have supported (and who have supported us) over the past 12 months (nearly doubling on last year!). This is including 5 new sport stadiums, huge concert venues which have moved the company further into Leeds, Stockport, York and Liverpool allowing us to create a stable base of GetStaffedUK family across the North West, all of who are creating a fabulous impression on us on and our clients. We can’t wait to see what 2019 brings!

We have trained 3000 Go-Getters in Hospitality Skills, inclusive of our bar training, cocktail tending and food service academies. These are having a massively positive impact on our employees and the feedback we have received from employees over the past few months just shows how far we have come along.

We’ve been working on our employee engagement, streamlining our processes and ensuring that all of our team enjoy their experience at GetStaffedUK.

Some of our 2018 highlights include:

  • Staffing the VIP terrace & bars at Lytham Festival
  • Working at huge concerts including Florence & the Machine, Mumford & Sons and You Me At Six.
  • Amazing dance events in Liverpool, including festivals and special events such as Circus, Steelyard and Cream Classical
  • Our Summer, festival themed, staff do
  • Watching our office team grow and seeing our managers learn about different sides of the business and develop their skillset
  • Being sole suppliers to various events and venues, starting from helping with kiosk bars to running hospitality sections!
  • The list goes on and on…. but we like to keep it short and sweet.

See you in 2019!!!!

Suppose we best complete our Red Rose Award applications and show off what we’ve done 😉
