With Melbourne event season in full swing, we rely on our hardworking team to maintain our (always) high levels of customer service when we go from busy to really busy in October. Our conscientious team includes 15 Complete Function Hire Road Staff. These guys are the glue that holds our operation together over event season with their tireless efforts to ensure our hire products are delivered, bumped in and set up on time, every time. And with a smile! Our Road Staff make sure our furniture and equipment are in top condition and that our busy warehouse is running like clockwork.

How long have you been involved in the events industry?
Just over a year.
What prompted you to start working at Complete Function Hire?
I joined Complete Function Hire because I believed the event industry would be interesting and I could utilise my background in customer service and hospitality.
First Complete Function Hire gig?
My first job was a corporate dinner at Munich Brauhaus.
Most memorable event or wedding you have worked on at Complete Function Hire and why?
We’ve done a few weddings in the Royal Botanic Gardens. I always enjoy delivering and setting up there as there are so many amazing locations throughout the Gardens – it’s hard to top!
What do you enjoy best about working at Complete Function Hire?
The variety of function venues we go to always keeps the job interesting. We are able to go to places that we wouldn’t normally have access to and see amazing spaces and events – there’s never a dull moment.
Favourite hobbies and past times?
I am a huge basketball fan (and horrible basketball player!). I also enjoy drawing and painting and anything creative.
Who do you barrack for in the AFL (or other favourite sport) and why?
The mighty Bombers!! It runs in the family. It’s been great to work so closely with Essendon Football Club this year as we (Complete Function Hire) are event support partners of the club.
