What makes a career in sales at Hire Space unique?


I’ve spent the whole of my career to date in various account management and relationship management roles and can honestly say working as a RM for Hire Space is the best! Firstly the nature of the work is SO varied, I look after all of my accounts enquiries, this could be hugely complex events for 1000s of people, over multiple days or a simple private event for 10 guests. This enables me to work with event spaces of all sizes and styles not just in London but across the UK and Internationally. One day I could be looking for a private members club in Miami, the next moment for a conference room in Leeds!

How does Hire Space support your mental and physical health?


Hire Space does a great job of supporting the team's health and specifically have implemented a lot of structure and provide a lot of support around mental health. The company made a decision a few years ago to recognise mental health sickness the same as physical health sickness, and is open about taking mental health sick days. We have fully paid access to a coach & physchotherapist, whenever we want or need. There is a mental health first aider, and it's just definitely a very open company regarding mental health. Recently the company has announced more investment in the team's health, by provided a wellbeing budget to spend on whatever we like, be it gym membership, subscription to a wellbeing app, childcare, healthy eating... We're also doing a group 5k run in a couple of weeks. To top all this off, there is a lot of recognition at Hire Space to make sure everyone is aware of the great work being done around the company. Sales gongs and marketing enquiry results are lauded, yes, but there are awards given out across the company to recognise achievements in line with our company values.

Do you feel like your opinion matters at Hire Space?


Since the moment I started, I felt the company culture, and the attitude of those around me, meant I felt immediately included and valued. I have found that if I have an idea or disagree with a point made, I have free rain to share my opinion. Everyone has equal opportunity to have their voices heard and celebrated.

What aspect of Hire Space’s culture keeps you at the company?


One aspect of the culture that keeps me at the company is how well everyone gets on as one big team. I really like that at Hire Space we call the whole company a ‘team’ not just individual teams, it really highlights how everyone works together in the business. I really enjoy our breakout out rooms twice a week on our morning meeting which gives us a chance to catch up with each other, particularly those we don’t get to work with on a day to day basis.When the whole team does meet up in person everyone gets on really well and there is no divide at all!

What’s your best experience you’ve had with Hire Space?


I’ve had a lot of amazing experiences since I started working with Hire Space 8 months ago. From visiting quirky new venues on FAM trips, working at our annual trade show Event Lab to speaking with my brilliant clients about their exciting upcoming events. My top experience would definitely be attending the National Television Awards at the O2 last September! Being hosted in a corporate box and being surrounded by famous faces is definitely something I'll never forget.

What makes the company culture unique?


The Hire Space team cultivates such a “family” vibe! I’ve never worked within such a supportive team before and the collaboration between everyone is truly special! Everyone and anyone will go out of their way to help you work wise if they can... and they’re also on hand to help you sink a few drinks at the end of the day!

How do you feel Hire Space supports you as a parent?


They don’t stand in the way of good team members that want to be even better parents. An incredible paternity leave, flexibility in where and when I work, and their genuine eagerness and enthusiasm to grant me time away from the desk with reasons like “to take Lucas swimming for the first time” has meant I haven’t missed a single significant moment in my son's life.

One thing I’ve always noticed about Hire Space, is how from Day 1, everyone has a voice. It doesn’t matter what your role is or how long you’ve been with the company, everyone is able to bring ideas to the table. The mantra is, “if you think there’s a better way of doing something, let’s hear it!” and I love that!

What traits are necessary for someone to thrive at Hire Space?


To thrive at Hire Space you have to have a real can -do attitude and a glass half full resolve. The teams positivity is infectious and so it’s not hard to feel the same way. That said, you do have to be willing to work hard and get stuck in! We are a fairly small team and so you have to be happy to jump in and help where you can.

What makes the company culture unique?


Hire Space has a generous, fun-loving and youthful culture. Whilst rare, that’s far from unique, but we have the benefit of in-house events experts and tonnes of collaborators in the venues and events industry that are always looking to improve their relationships with us as a market leader, which means our culture is supplemented by far greater access to incredible and varied experience than I can imagine any other company has.
