Summer Recap: Join Us As We Wave Goodbye To Another Glorious Season

It’s hard to believe that another summer has been and gone. Here at hap, it’s one of our busiest seasons, and as it draws to a close we wanted to take a moment to look back on everything we’ve achieved so far this year – from the new connections we’ve built, the amazing opportunities we’ve created, and the dynamic experiences we’ve helped to design. Join us as we relive our best moments…

Summer by numbers 

If we were to list every single festival, match day, concert, and company event that we’ve made possible with our flexible staffing solutions this summer, we’d have enough to fill a short book. So, let’s simplify things instead.

In total, our team has taken hundreds of thousands of calls, onboarded tens of thousands of personnel, ran thousands of hospitality events shifts, and staffed more than 225 festivals – as well as tons of events – throughout the UK and Ireland. We’ve also welcomed more than 20 new members of temp staff to our growing office team, and (humble brag) amassed more than 1,000 new TikTok followers – find us at @hapstaff. 

Here, there and everywhere 

Like we mentioned above, hap’s people are experienced in staffing all kinds of events. So if you’ve had the chance to cheer on your favourite team, seen one of your music idols in the flesh, indulged in a spot of wine or cheese tasting at a local food festival, or even brushed shoulders with valuable connections at an industry networking event this summer, it’s more than likely that a member our team pulled you a pint, poured you a mixer, offered their advice on portaloos, or just served you with a smile.

Here’s what our amazing team had to say…

“I’ve loved keeping up with our staff over the summer, and receiving some great snapshots. My highlights have been visiting Leeds Festival and Creamfields where I got  the chance to see how the on-site team runs the bars.” – Millie, Social Media Executive

“This was my very first summer as a staffing manager, and it was definitely one of my most exciting ones to date. It’s truly a great feeling to say I’ve contributed to the smooth running of some of the biggest festivals in the UK.” – Aiden, Staffing Manager

“It’s amazing receiving a bar spec and turning it into the real thing – you feel a great sense of achievement. My favourite event was Secret Garden Party – which was a 24-hour festival. Logistically it was challenging, but the event itself was amazing! I also got the opportunity to work on site at British Summer Time and see my favourite artist Sam Fender, alongside The Rolling Stones. I’m now looking forward to planning and organising for the hospitality sector as we enter a new season.” – Kieran, Operations Director 

What’s next?

Though we may be waving goodbye to muddy fields and wellies until next year, our work is far from over. What began as a seasonal venture is now a dedicated year-round staffing hub – not to mention a vital support network for the hospitality and events industry. 

Football season is officially in full swing, and we’re now looking ahead to a few months of festive cheer. We’ve got staffing plans in place for Oktoberfest celebrations up and down the country, spooky solutions for Halloween events, and novelty jumpers at the ready for all those Christmas parties – they’ll come around quicker than you think!
