From Starting Up To Acquisition

Get the Shifts is a multi-award-winning temp staffing agency for the hospitality sector and was acquired in mid-2021. With a background in hospitality and as a member of several family businesses, Hannah Wrixon spotted an opportunity when it came to running events back in 2019. 

From humble beginnings supplying the staff to a local festival, Get the Shifts now provides fully trained hospitality staff on a temporary basis to some of the most prominent festivals and venues in Ireland. As our hospitality sector sees continual growth and combined with the emergence of the ‘gig economy’.

Critically all the staff employed by the company are trained, interviewed and are part of a team – the team ‘Superstars’. Working closely with the founder and CEO, Hannah Wrixon, our team helped the firm get her new business venture firmly off the ground.
