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 😉
