Over the past year, working for FGH Security’s Events Division has been very enjoyable. Every event has had differences but working with the other members of the friendly and reliable events team has always made going to work the same fantastic experience.
My favorite event that I’ve worked at was likely Kendal Calling. Being able to enjoy the atmosphere of a festival but working to ensure that this friendly, safe atmosphere is preserved really gave me a sense of satisfaction.
FGH have enabled me to focus on my personal development, offering me multiple additional training courses and also testing me out as a supervisor for a night. This has shown me that FGH have been very willing to invest and support in my professional development and the events manager, Alex Redman, is supportive and easy to communicate with.
FGH really challenge industry stereotypes in the sense that all the staff are friendly and mainly customer service orientated. This translates to an enjoyable work environment, and one I hope to enjoy for the foreseeable future!
I’ve been doing event and festival work for FGH Security for around three years, primarily alongside my University studies and now alongside my full time job. I’ve worked a range of festivals and one off events for FGH and I can honestly say no two are the same. Though the days can be long they’re more often than not great fun due to both the guys and girls you’re working next to and the people you’re working for.
The best event work I’ve done so far was Manchester Pride of 2013. I was expecting it to be a bit rough as we were in the centre of Manchester working, however I couldn’t have been more wrong. The Pride goers were the happiest and friendliest bunch I’ve had the pleasure of working for. The whole place was electric with one of the best atmospheres I’ve been involved with. It was a weekend of long days accompanied by constant laughing.
On a serious note, all of the events and festivals couldn’t be this stress free and enjoyable to work with out all of the prior preparation undertaken behind the scenes at FGH HQ. I’ve been involved with small sections of the build up stages of these events and I know how hard the office team work to ensure nothing on the day or weekend is left to chance.
Alex the Events Opperations Manager is constantly working, both for the clients of FGH and for the FGH staff and he’s never to busy to crack a smile or a joke!
