Build a team of professionals

We advise thinking carefully about the type of event staff you hire and the skills you want from them. By deciding if you need bar staff, caterers or a host to welcome guests, your staffing supplier can create a team that ticks all the boxes.

Hire a crew that’s bang on brand

If you’re hosting a corporate event, you'll want to hire staff that represent your brand and connect with guests. Consider the demographics of the guest list and hire staff that will make them tick by giving an engaging and memorable service.

Catering staff

Give staff a thorough briefing

Briefing staff before your event will help minimise the number of questions they might have and give them a good overview of their full responsibilities.

For a bigger event, it's worth investing in a supervisor to act as a single point of contact for staffing questions. They can also handle any issues, freeing you up to work on the rest of your to-do list!

Event Staff

Consider hiring a Master of Ceremonies

If no one's stepping forward to host your corporate event, or you don't want the responsibility of keeping time at your wedding, consider hiring an MC to keep everything on track.

They'll make sure the event runs like clockwork by announcing key moments like speeches and, most importantly, they'll encourage everyone onto the dancefloor!
