Gallowglass are an event crew company who supply manpower to all manner of events taking place across the UK.

They seek to open career paths for those who are from diverse and underrepresented backgrounds by providing job opportunities, regardless of industry experience. 

Keen to expand their operations in Scotland, our Employer Support Team provided them with valuable advice on the Glasgow labour market including financial incentives, and created a bespoke recruitment service to link them to local candidates.

One such example tells the story of Ciaran, who came to Jobs & Business Glasgow having been out of work for many years, caring for his parents. Ciaran had previously worked as a set painter for the TV and film industry and the Gallowglass opportunities appealed to him greatly. 

Assisted by our staff, he prepared a successful application, and was selected for the Gallowglass employment programme, providing training, work experience, and mentoring. On completion, he joined the event crew team in his new role. 

Ciaran has continued his professional development with the successful completion of further industry training courses, including Working at Heights, and Harness Inspection.

With good work ethic, he has already received promotion in his role and prepares to complete advanced industry training which will also see him certified with his Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) card, opening doors to further career opportunities which will return greater salary prospects.

This partnership between Jobs & Business Glasgow and Gallowglass is helping to link Glasgow residents into new and exciting career opportunities. 

Gallowglass Human Resources confirmed, “we have a good working relationship with JBG and we hope that this will continue to remain ongoing.”
