Managing Director’s Welcome

yv

Welcome to this month’s newsletter. The football season has now come to an end and what a great season it has been. I have been completing my annual client season review meetings over the past and upcoming weeks and the general feedback has been positive. I would personally like to thank all of our staff that have been deployed over the past couple of extremely busy weekends.

During the close season the Group continues to be busy with upcoming events and festivals, with the HQ Group also being extremely busy organising the operational needs in preparation for the next football season already.

It is now public knowledge that Wembley National Stadium will host Tottenham Hotspur’s next season, this is great news for the Group and expands our operational event days massively. Jim has been work relentlessly behind the scenes with our recruitment, you may see many new faces out on the ground, so please ensure that you remain as professional as always and welcome our new staff members into the Group.

The summer season is a very busy time for the Group and as always I look forward to seeing you all out on the ground, make sure you continue to check PARiM for the latest available shifts.

Yvonne Bryce
Managing Director

To all the staff that went out and completed a shift prior to this fixture, I would like to thank you. It’s times like these where all our staff really live up to the name – “Knights Group Gladiators”.
