About Us

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.

"Rosterfy was crucial for us as a Workforce team as a measure of success"

"On a side note, I wanted to thank both of you for the past 12 months. You have been outstanding in your support of RLWC2017.
From a system perspective, Rosterfy was crucial for us as a Workforce team as a measure of success. On the back of the Tournament, I can confidently say it was a saving grace for us to utilise the system from an application, training, communications, reporting & rostering perspective.
I have strongly recommended to the 2021 World Cup team that they get in touch with you for their Workforce System requirements and have forwarded your details."

"A unique combination of knowledge and experience with a world leading platform"

"This year we have set a new bar for the NFL and successfully delivered the largest ever volunteer workforce for a Super Bowl with over 10,000 volunteers. Rosterfy has been at the core of every single touch point. From initial registration, screening, training, interviewing, assigning roles and shifts, through to game time check in and post event thankyou’s. The platform offers a true end-2- end solution to managing a complex, large scale program. I'm delighted that the success of this program has resulted in Minneapolis for SB LII, partnering with Rosterfy. With the team at Rosterfy being experienced event practitioners they offer a unique combination of knowledge and experience with a world leading platform."

In automating several of the key registration elements, the team can now focus on customer service and onsite welfare, delivery and recognition programs.
