To ensure that your event is well-staffed and runs smoothly, you need careful planning around how to find, manage, and pay events and security staff. If you're looking to find flexible security and event staff, there are a few different options to consider. One is to use an online platform or app that connects event organisers with gig workers in your area ready to work temp jobs or shifts.

Using this option, you’ll find a large pool of gig workers available for various event types—making it easy to find event staff quickly and efficiently. You can post jobs, receive applications from potential event staff, and view profiles and ratings for different applicants, which helps you make a more informed decision so you can find the right person for the job. You can also manage your staff and pay event staff or freelancers through the platform, which speeds up the process and makes it more convenient for everyone involved. The licensed private security provider, 1PlusSecurity chose this route.
