1.     Know what staff you need

There are various types of staff that you can hire for the event including waiters and food runners. Before contacting the agency, think about what tasks the staff will be carrying out and what types of skills are needed. Informing the agency with this information means they will be able to find individuals that are best suited to your requirements.

2.     You can be really specific if needed

Some people shy away from asking for specifics, including hair colour etc as they feel it is an odd requirement to ask for, however the staffing provider will be more than happy to take on whatever you ask. Click here.

3.     Your event staff will ask questions

Events and operations vary from one another, meaning staff members may need a little bit of guidance when it comes to your event in particular and what you expect from them. The staff chosen will want to complete their tasks to the highest standard possible, so we suggest hiring supervisors to be the main point of contact for any advice.
