Event Staff - Everything You Need To Know

Looking for staff for your next event? Look no further. 

 

The Hospitality Company has been providing hospitality staff to some of London’s most exclusive events since 2013. We’ve established ourselves as the preferred choice of event planners and decision-makers alike, thanks to our highly-trained, vibrant staff and our reputation for excellence.

 

We take hospitality seriously, which is why we developed our own in-house training program to ensure all our event staff meet our exacting standards. Whether you’re a professional event planner who regularly needs event staff, or are planning a one-off event, you’re in safe hands with The Hospitality Company. 

Event Staff Options

We broadly offer two categories of event staff here at The Hospitality Company, wait staff and bar staff. Depending on your event, you may require one or both categories, we’ll speak with you as part of our consultation process to ensure you’re needs are met.

 

Wait staff are trained in every aspect of hospitality, from full table service (snake and team methods) to canape and tray service. Event staff will arrive well presented and in uniform, ready to seamlessly wait your event. 

 

Bar staff are important members of The Hospitality Company team. Whether you’re hosting a promotional event or want to offer a full cocktail service to your guests, our bar staff can deliver. From correct setup and glass usage to mixology, our event staff will ensure your guests are well taken care of.

 

With all hospitality elements of your event taken care of, from aperitifs to table clearance, let The Hospitality Company’s professional event staff free up your time to focus on the bigger picture.

The Importance Of Good Event Staff

The quality of the staff you have working at your event can make or break the occasion - it’s as simple as that. We’ve all been to an event with staff that were sorely lacking, whether it was misplaced meals, slow service or bad attitudes, the level of professionalism by hospitality staff directly reflects on your event. 

 

Knowing how to pull a pint or clear a table simply isn’t enough when it comes to event staff. The high-pressure, fast-paced environment isn’t suited to everyone, which is why so many event planners and decision-makers opt to outsource their staffing instead of simply hoping for the best.

 

We work with clients that expect nothing but the highest standards, from royalty and celebrities to multi billion-pound corporate events. Big or small, we give the same level of professionalism to every event, ensuring our clients come back to us time and time again. 

Why Choose The Hospitality Company?

With so many providers of event staff in London, what sets The Hospitality Company apart from the rest? Well, we like to think that its our attention to detail and more importantly, the quality of the event staff we provide. 

 

Unlike other event staff providers, we do much more than just recruit and deploy staff. Our training courses have been designed to bring our event staff up to our high hospitality standards, regardless of whether they come from a hospitality background or not. This ensures that we can fix any bad habits of those who have previously worked in hospitality elsewhere, and instil the right values and skills in those new to the industry.

 

Our training program allows us to handpick those most suited to the busy, demanding task of outsourced event staffing. When you book your event staff through The Hospitality Company, you can be sure that you’ll only receive the best standard of service from our pool of well-presented, punctual and reliable team.
