Licensed private security provider 1 Plus Security has announced a partnership with gig economy platform Gigable to deliver a team of flexible workers for concerts, festivals and events this summer. The collaboration will support event planners in tackling the increased demand for security at events.
1 Plus and Gigable have partnered up to relieve event planners' and entertainment firms' concerns around sourcing a dependable security crew to service the large number of summer concerts in Malahide Castle and Marley Park as well as other camping weekend festivals and events.
With this partnership, Gigable is making further inroads into other industries such as events and ultra-fast grocery delivery markets.

Statement By Gigable CEO
John Ryan, CEO of Gigable, stated, "This partnership with 1 Plus Security and Gigable hopes to restore and reshape the event industry by creating a seamless experience for organisers, contractors and workers. Following the initial 3-month trial with 1 Plus Security, the Gigable platform quickly became integral to connecting flexible workers for busy events and is becoming the preferred staffing solution to ensure a safe and fun summer. With this partnership, 1 Plus Security can continuously promote available security shifts on the Gigable platform, as they continue to innovate to provide work for security and stewards at summer events."
Statements By 1 Plus Security CEO
CEO of 1 Plus Security Alan Crowley stated, "There has been difficulty sourcing temporary security this year with staff shortages across all sectors resulting in a challenge which Gigable along with our experienced Human Relations team has now successfully contributed to solving. As we adapt to the flexible working model that has arisen post-pandemic, not only do Gigable provide pre-vetted security staff but it ensures that all staff are paid in excess of the minimum wage and are protected with added benefits."
Crowley added, "At 1 Plus Security we believe in innovation and technology to provide integrated security solutions while maximising our employee experience. Gigable is a fitting partner as they have an exciting staffing platform which has streamlined communication with potential staff and our scheduling systems while providing an accurate audit trail through a user-friendly dashboard."
