About Us

Raising the bar in hospitality
starts by beginning within

Enabling amazing experiences is our passion.


As the UK and Ireland's premier hospitality recruitment, staffing, training and consultancy company, we have sourced the finest talent for the most prestigious hospitality companies and events in the UK, Ireland and beyond since 2000. 

We have raised the bar in service standards by thinking differently and challenging perceptions of how casual staffing, recruitment and venue management should be practised.

We help our teams grow their experience with us so their careers can flourish, because creating success for our clients begins with enabling success within. This includes helping the less fortunate through our services, time and charitable contributions.

In doing so, we aim to improve the reputation of service within the UK and Ireland hospitality industry and around the world.


Vibrant, social, fun, diverse and emotive. Hospitality provides a backdrop for many major events in our lives. 


Our focus is on delivering consistent magic moments. We treat each client with the same consideration no matter how small or large their requirements are. Equally we support our candidates and team with care and consideration. A coffee served with a smile can bring as much enjoyment as a bottle of vintage champagne.

Off to Work founded the EPAs to champion the importance of photography to the events industry.

Managing Director, Philip Atkins wanted to build a platform for event photographers of all levels to be recognised for their contribution to the industries they so creatively capture.

The 2018 awards marked the EPA's 5th anniversary and was held in the British Museum's state-of-the-art theatre. A portion of the proceeds benefitted two charities. Have a look at the 2018 winners!
