Jaimee was a great waitress for my daughters 21st. Jaimee very personable and engaged well with the guests as she served food. She prepared and served the food and helped with drink service during the speeeches. She worked well unsupervised , but was quick to seek help if she needed clarification. Thanks Jaimee for making Tash’s 21st a success!

We can't thank you enough to Matt for his amazing assistance on the night and things wouldn't have gone so well if he wasn't there. All the guests were amazed with his work and his ability to be everywhere at once! We can't thank you enough for accepting the job at such late notice. I would highly recommend Matt to anyone!

Top Event Staff related questions

The easiest answer to this is to have a professional event planner handle this. However, if you’re managing an event on your own, the answer here depends on two things. First is the scale of the event, especially for the number of waiting staff and ushers. The second is how complicated it is to run the event. You might need specialists for this, especially for basic functionalities and technical aspects.

Taskers on the Airtasker platform vary from independent contractors to crewing companies who can do the hiring for you. There’s no correct answer between the two, as this would depend on how you’d want to approach hiring staff for your event. If you have many required staff, it could be best to go for a bulk posting and have an agency take on your task. If you only need a few, having individual postings might be manageable.

That depends on your arrangement with the Taskers you hired. If they require an initial deposit before the event, some of them might impose a no-refund clause. However, if the staff did not and would only require payment after the event, the booking would get straight-up cancelled. It would be best to discuss with Taskers on their cancellation policies before you book their services.  

As with any event, preparing ahead is key to ensure that yours would run as smoothly as can be. We recommend starting to look for event staff around three to six months in advance and reserve the dates when you need the staffing. That way, it’s only a matter of execution come the day of the event. It would also make it easier to prepare for the event, requiring permits and other applications.

That depends on what kind of staff you’re looking for. For instance, there’s no technical skillset needed for waiting staff and ushers to fulfil their roles in an event, making the hiring process for these Taskers easier. For those who require technical qualifications like lights and sounds staff, you need to do due diligence to hire people who are fit for the job.

It would depend on how much you can allocate for the people that would run the show for you. Feel free to discuss and negotiate with your Tasker on a rate and payment terms agreeable to both parties to ensure smooth sailing and properly manage expectations. 

What do event staff services include?

If your event requires plenty of staff to run it, make things simpler by sourcing an event crew for hire through Airtasker. Be it needing a technical crew or just wanting to make a celebration special by hiring party staff near you, Taskers can readily make your event a success.

If your image as a host is on the line, one should prioritise ensuring that guests are happy from the moment they engage with you until after the event, where they can potentially rave about the excellent time they had. Here are just some of the kinds of event staff that you can book via Airtasker: 

Manpower-dependent staff

If you need the numbers to match up an equally impressive number of guests for your event, then booking event staffing should be easy on Airtasker. Handling events planning in a large venue? You can hire ushers to guide your guests. What about a large reception or a banquet? Plenty of waiting staff can help make your event a success.

Behind-the-scenes staff

From event managers down to what powers your kitchen, there is no shortage of skilled Taskers you can hire via Airtasker. If you need to feed a horde of guests, add buffet caterers to your capable crew team or have a music producer on board to spice up the party! Need to manage what goes on the stage? Have an experienced production crew handle it and see your event come to life and unfold from start to finish. You can also hire a videographer or photographer to capture memories that your guests will indeed look back on for years to come. 

Front-facing staff

To make sure that your guests are welcomed and that the mood of your event doesn’t go sour at any given moment, you have to make sure you have the right people to face and entertain an audience. From bar staff and live entertainment to event hosts, you can get various professionals to ensure that your guests are engaged and interested throughout the event or even a private party. When it comes to receptions and banquets, the front of the house and customer service and hospitality staff should handle orders and serve guests with a smile.
