    "Event Workforce is much more than just a recruiting agency. For any event organiser Event Workforce has the ability to make your life much easier and less stressful both pre event and on event day.
    Not only were Event Workforce able to provide me with over 100 young and enthusiastic event staff and volunteers but they also were able to handled the check in and check out of their staff and ensure each individual was where they needed to be on event day. The ability of Bennett and Shannan to come in and understand the needs of our event from day one was outstanding and the quality of the staff they were able to provide was of the highest level."

    2011 Southern University Games - 65 Volunteers

    "From the onset, Event Workforce showed innovative ideas in recruiting volunteers and an understanding of our event and volunteer number requirements. Not only did they fulfil the recruitment quota the Games required, they also provided additional support throughout the Games delivery period.
    The ability of Event Workforce to relate to its student volunteers and also attract volunteers from outside the student network is its strength. Having been volunteers, the managers of the company understand their clients, both volunteers and event organisers.
    AUS is extending its relationship with Event Workforce into 2012 and I would certainly recommend Event Workforce to assist with your volunteer recruitment strategies."

    2011 BUPA 'Around the Bay' Cycling &minus 80 Promotional Staff.

    "Working with Event Workforce at the 2011 Bupa Around the Bay was a truly enjoyable experience. Our client required a very specific type of person to represent their brand, carrying a combination of both knowledge and enthusiasm that most talent agencies would find impossible to provide. We provided a very specific brief to Shannan and the team and they delivered 80 people to us who were from universities, studying in the areas relating to our clients’ needs. Because it was so aligned with their areas of interest, they approached our promotion as more than a job. The result was fantastic and positive feedback was provided by the event organisers and especially the client. "

The challenge we found in previous years was finding quality, punctual hospitality staff with relevant event experience. Event Workforce provided us with 120 excellent young, efficient bar and food staff. Not only were their staff exactly what we were looking for, the administration and recruitment time Event Workforce saved us was pivotal to us running a successful event. Thanks guys! "
