London 2012 is fast approaching, and Londoners have been putting the finishing touches on the plans. For most people, getting ready for the Olympics has been a matter of buying an extra cooler for beer, booking a few days off work, or maybe, if they were lucky, splurging on a few tickets. But for others, job seekers and employers included, these Olympics could be more than that.
Most casual observers know about the high profile Olympic gigs: athletes, torchbearers, organising committees. What they don’t stop to think about are the thousands of support staff that it takes to make an event of this magnitude run smoothly. There will be people cleaning the Olympic Village, handing out information to tourists, and guarding empty venues at night. This isn’t just a world class event, it’s also a world class opportunity. And London, being the massive city that it is, is always hosting massive opportunities.
If you’re a job seeker, keep an eye out for chances like these. They could be the foot in the door that you need. Speak to David Alan if you want to know about any available opportunities. And if you’re looking to hire for an event of any size, remember your friendly neighbourhood recruiter. If you want extra bang for your buck, keep an eye out for one that deals with the type of staff you need. For example, in addition to a wide variety of office roles, David Alan also has a security branch and will happily take on anything from parties to Olympic-sized events.
