Creating a hassle-free experience, worldwide.
Why Join Us?
We’re an ever-growing, collaborative & inclusive company based in the heart of Chester whose goals is to save groups time whilst they’re creating memories.
Our Apprenticeship Program
One area of the business that we’re extremely proud of is our apprenticeships! 85% of the staff working at Funktion Events today came through as apprentices, learning and earning on the job.
To show off just how successful our apprenticeships have been, have a peek at our apprenticeship videos to get a better idea of how apprentices work for us & our staff.
We make a huge effort to constantly fill the team with aspiring young people who are eager to learn on the job through apprenticeships. In this video, you can see just a handful of our newest colleagues who are at different stages of their course in different departments of Funktion HQ. We’ve had staff complete Level 2, 3 & 4 apprenticeships over the course of 4 years with us and stay on after for a full time position. Alongside college work, a selection of our staff have completed other online and e-courses to aid in their job roles and personal development.
Senior Staff Journeys
As they say, the proof is in the pudding and staff staying on and climbing the business ladder is the best evidence that apprenticeships can be successful with hard work and support! Aside from the MD Jay, all the senior staff currently within the company came on to initially complete an apprenticeship of their own.
This has proved invaluable for the work they do on a daily basis, but also in supporting other staff as they work their way through their courses – because everyone has been in the same shoes. The attitude to learning that comes from completing an apprenticeship has also followed our senior staff as they complete courses in management and other key responsibilities.

We stick to a couple of key factors for employees when hiring, all to keep the workplace culture we love in the business. Personality-wise, we’re always on the look-out for keen, enthusiastic people who enjoy a great work-life balance but are always gearing to grow.
