Get The Shifts To Create 700 Casual Jobs In Hospitality Sector

Shannon-based recruitment company Get The Shifts has announced it will provide a further 700 casual roles in hospitality and events over the next 12 months, bringing the total number of roles it has provided to over 1,200, since it was founded in 2016.

The 700 new roles will be available to bar staff, wait staff, event staff, promo staff, baristas, mixologists and kitchen porters, and the recruitment company will offer full training to successful applicants.

A Need For "Reliable, Trained Staff"

Get The Shifts founder Hannah Wrixon commented, “Get The Shifts is on track to secure 60% of the casual hospitality market by the end of the year, and [this] announcement detailing our plans to provide another 700 roles comes as a result. From trying to forecast the right number of staff on any given day, to combating no-show employees, and from talent shortages to the fluid nature of labour in the industry, effective staffing is a historic problem for hospitality businesses. The reality is that businesses are in constant need of reliable, trained staff.”
