Co-owners, Shannan Gove and Bennett Merriman, were Sports Management university students struggling to find work experience in the Events, Sport and Entertainment industry – much like their fellow students. With no guidance or anyone to turn to, they decided to create their own company solely dedicated to connecting motivated university students with Event organisations - offering students work experience opportunities.
With thousands of students signing up for a chance to work with some of the largest event and sporting names, they needed a more efficient way to manage their growing database – alleviate the frustration of using complex spreadsheets and hours on the phone, a time consuming and labour intensive task. Chris Grant (now co-owner) built an online platform that easily allowed the team to manage their database.
In the coming months, friends in the industry were knocking on the door, excited to know more about the ground breaking software platform that was shaking up workforce management. With immediate demand amongst friends, they knew this platform had the potential to help the wider event industry community. This gave birth to Rosterfy. A cloud based, highly secure software platform enabling organisations to manage their own on-demand event workforce of volunteers.
Since this time, the team has significantly grown, spanning across three continents.
The team at Rosterfy are not your typical software team, we are a team of staffing experts who knew there was a better way to schedule, communicate and train a mobile event workforce.
