About Arc Recruitment

Recruitment Process



The best way to apply is directly through our website by clicking the apply now button. Alternatively, you may apply for any of our adverts on the various online job sites that we use. Please make sure your CV is up to date and that you complete the application as thoroughly as you can. Our team will help you with any questions you have throughout the process but the more information you can provide, the better. You should highlight any experience you have that is relevant to working in events. Once you have clicked apply, it will take you through to our application process.



Firstly, we would need you to answer some brief questions and then upload your proof of Right to Work documents. Due to the current sittuation with Covid-19, we cannot see this in person and therefore this needs to be verified online. 

After this, it will then be a video introduction! We will ask you to pre-record a 3 minute video telling us about you, your expeirence and why you want to work with Arc. We recruit the right people with the right attitude, and this is your chance to demonstrate this!

Hopsitality is about personality and allows you the opportunity to shine! It’s nothing to be worried about, but remember to give as much information as possible and show your enthusiasm that you have for working with us.

One of the recruitment team will then review your video before moving your application forward. 



If you are successful after the video stage, you will then be asked to read and watch our induction presentation!

Due to Covid-19, we cannot currently hold our group induction sessions so this online induction will run through your expeirence working with arc, expectations of you on shift and lots of other useful information, as well as, some training elements.



Compulsory training with Arc takes place during your online induction, however, we do encourage further training once you have started work with us and we are able to start running our sessions again! Further training happens on site with our clients and in our training rooms. Compulsory training will focus on essential aspects on food and drinks service. This is perfect for newcomers to the industry but also an opportunity for the experienced applicants to demonstrate their knowledge and skills. Further training opportunities include top tier hospitality, team leader, supervisor, barista and betting.

Here's what our staff and customers think of us...

“Since 2010, we have tasked Arc with managing the recruitment for all our seasonal and temporary staff throughout the year. That’s everything from advertising, recruitment, interviews, selection, induction and payroll. They give us a 7-day operation so if we need a member of staff at short notice, they are a phone call away. Arc offer outstanding value for money. They deliver on quality, value and service and we will happily use Arc in the future"

Head of Visitor Services, Knowsley Safari Park

I've great experience working with Arc over the past few months. I can now say I’ve worked at some of the biggest venues in UK, and I am proud of what I have achieved. I recommend working for Arc as it is great flexible work for students and a good way to meet new people.

Sarah, Cardiff

"On my first shift everyone made me feel welcome and I quickly got the hang of what we were doing. The Christmas parties are the best shifts ever because it’s very fun and you get to know everyone and they make you feel welcome. This is now my second year working Arc and I couldn’t thank them enough for everything they do! If it weren’t for Arc I wouldn’t be where I am now with loads of different opportunities!"

Rebecca, Liverpool

We have been working with Arc for a couple of years now and I am pleased to say that our experience has been very positive. We highly rely on Arc for their experienced bar staff and plate waiters. Their staff is of great quality and many have had the chance to progress in their career to team leaders as well as managers. We have such a good relationship because communication flows easily and our expectations are always met if not exceeded. 

Senior Staffing Coordinator, Sodexo

I started working closely with the team at Arc over four years ago, as the allocation of staffing awarded to them for our Christmas sites grew to over 60% across the UK – due to the great work they had done over all the previous years.

We have a great working relationship which we are proud to have developed with not only the company Directors, but their whole hospitality team. We trust everyone at Arc to always be honest with us, and by knowing they will be, it gives us the confidence to reach out to them when we take on new projects.

When we were awarded the contract to provide the hospitality services on the Isle of Man for their world-famous TT races, I didn’t hesitate to contact Paul at Arc immediately for help and advice and to find a way to work together on such an exciting project. We needed to have alongside us a team which we trusted would go the extra mile and ensure we delivered the best service possible,

I knew the team at Arc would go above and beyond … and they didn’t disappoint! We had to move quickly, and they rose to the challenge – flying out to the island to host meetings and interviews, logistics planning, joining us on site for training days and then being at the events with us, from start to finish, to ensure everything came together.

You can plan the best events and organise everything to the finest detail… but it really is about the staff, they may be the only person our customers and client speak to at an event so we need to have the confidence they represent what we believe in and the service standards which want to deliver.. and Arc’s team did just that!

Senior Operations Manager, Best Parties Ever

I have been with Arc for almost 6 months and really love it! I pick and choose my own shifts to work and the variations of roles is great whether you’re in the kitchens, behind the bar or out on the floor. The management team are very understanding yet professional and genuinely appreciate the effort you put in!

Natalie, Yorkshire

As a student in Manchester, I want to work part time to earn some extra pocket money. However, I also want the freedom to choose my shifts as I want to fit my part time work around my busy student schedule. I'm glad I'm able to do this with Arc! The staff at Arc are polite, friendly and extremely professional.

Ryan, Manchester

Working for Arc is always fun - I do casual work for them around my studies at events. The staff are always friendly and the pay is very good. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for flexible work!

Luke, London
