How We Recruit & Train

We use a robust and thorough applicant tracking system (ATS) and have worked with the developer to create a bespoke onboarding process. 

Vacancy

We can place vacancies on our website which links to Indeed and other job boards. These can be targeted to various geographies. Vacancies meet all legal requirements including job roles and rates of pay.

Application

There are two routes to apply for Arc, the first is by applying online before being invited to an assessment session. The second allows candidates to submit a video application, should their geographic location or circumstances mean they cannot attend in person.

Assessment Session

Our assessment sessions cover all things Arc, from our story, vision, type of clients and code of conduct to practical training for various positions. We look for individuals who are friendly, engaged and confident in interacting with others. 

Training 

All candidates are given training on COSHH, Manual Handling, Food Safety & Allergens. Hospitality skills are assessed from induction level (3 plate service/5 plate clear, tray service etc) and additional skills are noted (e.g. Barista)

Our On-Site Management Team

For larger events, we have an on-site management team to assist with all aspects of the operation including:

  • Accreditation
  • Signing-in/Signing-out
  • Management of Staff Breaks
  • Welfare Issues
  • Team Member Performance
  • Team Member Presentation

We come fully equipped with our own infrastructure and resources including branded gazebos, flags and telescopic flag poles. This makes it really easy for the staff to see where they are going, what area they need to be in and helps us to manoeuvre large groups of people around efficiently and effectively.

Our on-site managers can be present throughout the entirety of the shift to manage any welfare issues and assist with check out. It also helps us with quality assurance as we can see team members in action for ourselves

This system reinforces our vision and commitment to being a sustainable business, legally accountable for creating triple-bottom-line value: people, profit and planet.
