If you are organising
you must feel a lot of pressure to get the right level of service and deliver a memorable occasion.
Many of our clients are a bit stressed about this task and if you are one of them let me let you to a secret: since 2009 we have worked on over 18,776 corporate events so we won’t let you down!
We can provide you with experienced & hard working waiting staff, bartenders, host & hostesses, cloakroom staff & more. In a nutshell we can source any staff for your event so that aspect of your event you have covered.
LOOKING FOR EXPERIENCED STAFF FOR YOUR EVENT?
HERE FOR YOU
We can also advise you on any additional suppliers – whether florists, caterers, equipment hire companies or AV professionals – we have worked in events for over 10 years so we know which companies to recommend (and no, we do not take a cut here, we just want you to have a great event so that you are entrusted with holding another one where you would come back to Metro).
If you prefer to have an experienced event manager on site to look after the staff we can help you out with that too. In fact we recommend you have one if you need 5 staff or more – it just makes it so much easier for you! Last thing you want at your party is to be thinking how to arrange a bar, how many people to allocate to each task and when to give staff their breaks… Just get the manager to run it for you and you can just enjoy the event YOU organised.
We will be happy to advise, provide more information or a competitive quote, just contact us!
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
—Berwin Leighton Paisner
I did the dinner last night and they were a great team. Metro is by far the best agency for good quality butlers we have used in my 3 years at BLP – long may it continue!
Answers to questions you may find helpful.
Why should I choose Metro?
We have been running events since 2009 and up till February 2017 we have worked on over 18,776 events. We have worked on events big and small and you can see the list of our clients here – if the above doesn’t convince you to give us a try I am not sure what would…
How to book staff?
Just get in touch with us however you like- by email, phone or online form. You can even post us your order – whatever works for you! What do you need from me? All we need is the date of your event and your requirements. As mentioned earlier we can advise you on timings, order of service and numbers of staff required.
How quickly can you provide me with a quote?
We should be able to give you a ball park figure over the phone instantly but if you prefer to get a formal quote it will take no longer than 24 hours.
Will I be able to see the pictures of the staff beforehand?
Yes we can arrange it for you. Should you decide to book Model Waiters we will actually send you a portfolio of available staff a week before your party and you will be able to pick exactly the people you want.
What are the charges?
We only charge you a flat hourly rate for each member of staff. This rate includes all wages & fees and there are no other charges on top (as long as your event is within London Zones 1-3). If your event is further afield you will be charged one way travel time and return travel fare (by public transport) from Central London to your venue. We will be happy to provide you with the exact cost once you request a quote. -
What uniform do your waiters wear?
All staff come in the uniform of your choice. They all have smart black trousers, smart black leather shoes, black socks, smart white or black shirt (your choice) and you can also add a black tie and waistcoat. Butlers wear a formal black jacket, waistcoat & tie, white shirt and morning trousers (or black trousers if you prefer)
How many staff do I need for my event?
It is very hard to answer this one as it all comes down to the type of service you want. Standard practice is to have a ratio of 1 waiter to 10 guests for a sit down dinner and 1 waiter to 20 guests for a canapé reception. On top of these numbers you can add bartenders, cloakroom staff and managers if required. For more detailed advice please contact us and we will be happy to give it to you.
