About Us

What can Viking Staffing and Events Offer?

We specialise in event bar management and event staffing, however we can also provide a range of other services including specialist bar supervisor and management teams, event bar consultancy (inc licensing and health & safety advice), single bar activation build and break – providing consistency for the brand and bar and general event bar staffing.

Founded in 2021 by managing directors Matt and Jess, Viking Staffing and Events is an exciting new player within the event and hospitality industry. Drawing on Matt and Jess’ combined 25+ years experience in the events and hospitality sector, we are able to ensure the highest quality of staffing and service whilst ensuring we are maximising all potential revenue making opportunities and fulfilling all customer satisfaction ambitions your brand has.

All of our senior staff hold valid personal licences, current full DBS’s and have additional responsible alcohol sales training (BIIAB level 3). Our staff are all experienced and have been interviewed personally by Matt and/or Jess. Many of our staff have worked with us multiple times and we have a core group of staff who work exclusively for us and attend all the events we are part of. All our staff are brilliant team players who support each other and can cope easily with the potential demands of a high volume festival or event bar. We only employ staff of the highest quality and this, combined with our extensive focus on staff welfare, makes us truly unique and puts us at the forefront of quality staffing provision within the events industry.

No project is too complex for us, we are happy to discuss any and all requirements you and your brand may have. We have a special passion for working with smaller, unique festivals and events, where customers really get a personalised experience.

Our Previous Work

We have been lucky enough to work on an exciting plethora of events across England and Wales. In the 2 years since the business was formed, we have had the pleasure of working on some big festivals such as Rebellion, Fusion Festival, Slam Dunk, Torchlight and Pub In The Park. We have also worked on smaller and bespoke events such as Christmas In The Park and Cornwell Manor, as well as private weddings and parties at a range of stunning venues. We have an ever more exciting and packed calendar for the upcoming season, and we cannot wait to see what else we will have the privilege of working on soon! If you would like to know more about any of our previous or upcoming work, or get involved in working for us yourself, please do not hesitate to get in touch, using our ‘contact’ page.

The Team

Having started out in hospitality aged 17, I quickly realised it was a loveable beast that would become a great passion of mine. I gained my personal licence just 3 days after my 18th birthday and have sought as many different opportunities as possible in the sector since then. I have been lucky enough to work on some of the UKs biggest festivals and events and manage pubs and bars throughout the West Midlands. I am further privileged to be able to combine my ‘day job’ as a specialist teacher of SEND with the business; thus enjoying both of my passions simultaneously.

Ever since my first job in a local pub 18 years ago I have had a love of licensed trade and bar management. In that time I have been fortunate enough to run bars at some of the country’s best stadiums, sporting events and festivals. I’ve also had the privilege of looking after several bars in Cardiff. Throughout this time I’ve met many fantastic people and look forward to continuing to do so with Viking Staffing and Events. Matt the Viking.
