We want to enable anyone, anywhere, to organise incredible events with ease.

We’re building the only platform you’ll need for all of the important celebrations in your life; from your 18th birthday to your ruby wedding anniversary. At the same time, we’re helping small events businesses to thrive by providing an affordable and regular stream of local business.

How to apply...

Full managed

 

We take care of the entire process for you so we can manage and remove poor experiences like ghosting, no feedback, no updates and so on  🙌

 

All you have to do is let your Relationship Manager know you’re interested, ask them any questions you have and they will take care of the rest.

Straight to the front

From there, what’s next is super simple  😇

If you like the initial sound of the company/ role. We then act as your “in” with them and set up an initial phone chat with you and the Hiring Manager there. 

 

The chat will be pretty informal and should only last 10-15 minutes - It's a fact find for both of you. 

 

More than prepared 

 

Before the call we will send you EVERYTHING you'll need to know about the company / who they are looking for / format of the call and so on. 

 

You will be fully prepared and know what to expect at every stage 😀
