What’s been one of the highlights over the past year?
I don’t know if there’s a single highlight but the Gran National is definitely up there. It's been a solid year and it's been fun; we’re building a strong reputation in the hospitality sector and our growing relationships with large-scale sporting events has been fantastic. There’s definitely been ups and downs and stressful periods but the team has always delivered, especially with the support of my dear Mylo, our morale boosting office canine.
...We’re now staffing events such as The Stirling Marathon, Scottish Premier league football games, The Six Nations rugby finals and music events such as Rolling Stones, TRNSMT, Spice Girls, Pink and more!...
What do you think has challenged you and the team the most?
A think a big challenge, as with any expanding business, has been building presence and reputation in the region. When we first started, we were introducing a brand new concept of staffing to a region stuck in a traditional recruitment mindset. But even with the expected quiet periods that hospitality provides, we’ve grown and grown throughout the country.
We’re now staffing some of the biggest hotel chains in Glasgow and Edinburgh, as well as events such as The Stirling Marathon, Scottish Premier league football games, The Six Nations rugby finals and music events such as Rolling Stones, TRNSMT, Spice Girls, Pink and more! It’s a real mix of work but it just shows that more businesses are opening their doors to on-demand, flexible work, and our GIG Seekers are more than happy to work at all sorts of venues and events as it keeps it exciting!
