Role in Company: Area Manager
My role involves managing the day-to-day operations of our Liverpool branch. This involves organising our recruitment and staffing output, managing our team of Staffing & Recruitment Coordinators, and liaising with our clients to ensure we provide and maintain a quality service.
When did you start working with the company?
I started working as a temporary member of staff in July 2013, when I came back from University in Sheffield. I worked many different venues including Chester Racecourse, Liverpool Football Club and Knowsley Hall. During December I was invited in to the office to assist with their Christmas operations and I started full time in February 2014.
What is it that you love about Arc?
We’ve all said it but it’s true, the variation of the roles – each day is different. My role has changed over the years and I’ve worked with a lot of clients across the country which keeps it interesting, you have to adapt to new situations every day. Some of the events you get to work alongside are brilliant - I’ve worked with Champions League Finals, Rugby World Cup Finals, Commonwealth Games to name a few!
Working alongside clients to deliver a successful event is always a great feeling. Seeing a project through from start to finish, and seeing the end result on site and a happy client is what we’re in it for!
As well as this, seeing staff grow and develop from maybe not having much experience/confidence in hospitality to becoming comfortable in all roles and even supervisors!
Finally –I’ve seen the company grow tremendously since I started which is great to see and be a part of.
What do you see in the future for Arc:
We’re well on the way to becoming the biggest company of our type in a lot of areas of the UK we have only recently started out in. It’s great to be a part of an ever-expanding company.
2018 is already shaping up to be our biggest year yet. I’ve seen Arc grow at an incredible rate in the 4 years I’ve been here, so who knows where we’ll be in another 4 years!
