“My job varies from event to event, every shift is different. The best part of the job for me is the other people that I get to work with, everyone is cool. We get to mix with other employees from other offices and of course the customers. You get to chat to lots of people and it is a constant learning curve for me as I’m constantly learning new things from the interaction with different people from different countries and cultures.” Aydarous
Our staff provide a visible reminder that safety is our number one priority for visitors and staff at an event.
The Ideal Candidate:
You must be at least 18 years old and ideally you will have previous stewarding or customer care experience, however this is not essential as training will be provided.

An aptitude to working with the public, a friendly, approachable and professional manner are all important but, above all, flexibility is key.
“The flexibility is what attracted me to the role, and I enjoy dealing and assisting the public, my efforts for this have also enabled me to achieve employee of the month recently which shows the company takes a keen interest in my contributions.” Joshua
