Company looks to town for recruits
Berwickers are being offered the chance to work in the capital through global events supply specialist Gallowglass.
The London-based company recently visited the town in the hope of recruiting young people to work for them on some of the most notable events in the country.
Gallowglass are involved in more than 7,000 events per year including festivals, opening and closing ceremonies and government summits.
The company is also involved in building many of the most well-known television programmes such as The Voice, X Factor and Strictly Come Dancing.
Gallowglass chairman Paul Grecian is keen to open up job opportunities for people in Berwick.
“I spent my youth in Berwick and I know the value of getting experience in other parts of the world,” said Paul.
“We want to give people the chance to learn new skills and work on exciting events. Returning to the town with this valuable experience will also increase their chances of gaining further employment.”
Executives intend to return to the town before the end of the month to sign up locals to work out of their London office.
Coun Georgina Hill, member for Berwick East on Northumberland County Council, thinks the recruitment drive is a positive step for the town.
“While we try to maximise employment opportunities in Berwick itself, it is important to help our residents find employment elsewhere, as it is often necessary,” she said. “Young people, especially, can be keen and benefit from, at least a spell, of living and working elsewhere and there are obvious attractions to a city like London.”

Although based out of London, you may easily find yourself working out in one of their bases including Barcelona, Dubai or supporting Dec (without Ant this year) on a Mediterranean cruise whilst an episode of their series is filmed.
Gallowglass is involved in many major sporting events with teams managing key aspects of the Olympic Games in Rio 2016 and Pyeongchang earlier this year. They had a presence at the last two Champions League Finals in Cardiff and Kiev as well as the 2015 Rugby World Cup, all British Gymnastics, Netball and Hockey tournaments and loads more.
