The charitable social enterprise, EventWell, has announced a 150 per cent growth in its latest recruitment wave.

To support a 400% growth in business and event bookings throughout 2023, EventWell has recruited 13 new EventWell Hosts.

The team has been divided into two groups; one for the South and London, and the other for the North. Each team member is currently receiving safeguarding, neurodiversity, first aid, and mental health training, enabling them to supervise Eventwell Quiet Rooms at events and offer appropriate support as needed.

Helen Moon, founder and chief executive of EventWell, explained, “We are excited to welcome our newest hosts to the team. The increasing interest in our resilience hubs and quiet rooms highlights a greater understanding of the need for good accessibility and inclusion solutions at conferences and events. It is important for us to grow with the industry so we can continue providing support to event professionals and attendees.”

This expansion in the workforce builds on a previous wave of appointments from January 2023, when EventWell recruited eight new hosts to support multiple strategic partnerships.

Sanna Aab, the North host, explained why she chose to join EventWell, “Working in the creative industries, I’ve seen so many people struggling with terrible mental health, extreme stress, and burnout. It’s great to be part of an organisation breaking the stigmas and cultivating healthier lifestyles within our industry.”

Aab added, “Having worked on my first few events with EventWell, it’s been fantastic to witness the difference these spaces make for attendees.”

Moon concluded, “When reflecting on our growth since we first founded EventWell in 2017, I’m immensely proud of the passionate team we have built. Each of our new host members has shown a great commitment to mental health and neurodiversity in the industry, and I am excited to see the positive impact they will have.”
