    I have been working at High Society full-time

    Pros

    Working for High Society offers flexible work which is easy to work around studies or any schedules. There is a huge range of events around London from working in a sports events at Twickenham Stadium to private backstage events at some of the most exclusive venues! They offer lots of progression within the company and constantly opportunities to develop new skills! The best aspect about working for High Society is all the friendly staff you get to meet. I would highly recommend to anybody looking for exiting part time work!

    Cons

    None! High Society provides the flexibility to adapt work around your life.

    Advice to Management

    None, they are always so polite and bubbly to every member of staff!

    Pros

    Not only does High Society offer great events in and out of London, it gives you the flexibility to pick and choose what suits you. This is great as you don't need to commit too much and work you studies / seeing friends and family around work.
    It is really easy to book onto shifts. With such a great range of shifts available it is easy to pick what is most suitable time / location. Also, everyone at the office is really friendly and helpful.
    Finally, you get to work with different people on shifts and can be a great way to meet new people and make friends.

    Cons

    None! You get to make your own decisions which is really useful when you've got a busy schedule.
