Thank you for visiting our website. If you would like a few more details about what working as part of our team involves read on!
The main part of our business is supplying teams of front and back of house to companies operating in London’s events and hospitality industry. Our main recruitment intake is for waiters and waitresses but we also have regular opportunities for people seeking work as event hosts and hostesses as well as event porters and drivers.
Our client list is an extensive one and this means that our teams work in a huge number venues in and around London, although the majority of events tend to happen at venues within Zone 1. Our teams help out at events ranging from awards ceremonies, to major sporting and music events, to exhibition openings, to private viewings in galleries, to dinners in private houses and that’s just skimming the surface!
The work is flexible in nature in that our team members are not locked into working a set number of hours or assignments per week; this means that it suits people who have other demands on their time, be they personal, professional or academic. However, a point worth noting is that most events are evening ones with start times between 16:00 – 17:30hrs and that most events happen during the week. The minimum shift length is 4 hours and an average one that involves reception and dinner service will last between 5 – 8 hours, although there are often events that will last much longer.
Previous experience is not necessary to work in any of our divisions. As you might expect from a company accredited with the Investor in People award we ensure that everyone is equipped to perform the tasks that are expected of them at entry level. We also offer a comprehensive series of further training and development courses and there are plenty of opportunities for those who wish to make the most of their time with us.
Please note that work with Esprit will involve the service of alcohol and that for certain roles we may require disclosure from the Criminal Records Bureau.
