The fields are calling us here at hap, as we look forward to another year supporting some of the UK’s biggest festivals. But we know as well as you that planning comes first, excitement second. And a massive part of that is securing the staff you need to make your event run smoothly.
hap supports festivals up and down the country with our flexible staffing solution, and has been for a number of years. We’ll take care of the planning and acquisition side of your workforce, as well as the on-the-day organisation of the team across multiple roles – from behind the bar to behind the scenes. Here’s how you can benefit too.
We recognise the vital importance of proper planning for our clients – not only to ensure nothing goes wrong, but to give you peace of mind and the freedom to amplify the main event for your paying customers.
We start by finding the right people. By screening all potential staff, you’re provided with capable workers you can rely on. We even deliver pre-training so that each team member is brought up to speed for your specific event.
After we’ve locked in your workforce, we’ll take care of payroll, logistics (including transport and deployment), and all other elements of staff management to save you the precious time of organising this yourself.
Here’s the kind of roles you can expect us to cover for your event:
Bar staff, including managers and supervisors
Event and wristbanding staff
Hawking staff and customer service reps
And much more
Throughout the planning process, we’ll keep you right up to date with real-time numbers to prevent overbooking. And, of course, each staff member will be well-versed on general COVID-19 safety protocol, including any additional measures for your event.
On the day
hap’s support doesn’t end there. In fact, the preparation side only reflects half of our service, as we hand over the reins to our logistics and on-site teams. From the moment our staff get off the coach to the moment they get back on it, hap takes care of everything.
Workers are never left to fend for themselves, and neither are they lumped on you to manage. Once they’ve arrived, our on-site structure ensures that everyone knows what they’re doing, where they need to be, and when they need to be there. The hierarchy of support we lay on ensures everyone has someone to report to or seek out for help.
Whether it’s our on-the-ground staffing team or our office-based organisers, every area runs like a well-oiled machine. From bar managers to operations, it’s all accounted for so you can focus on what really matters: running the spectacular event your crowds came for.
