Let's Get Started

Penguin Positions

Banquet Servers

Our banquet servers work for big catering events to small home gatherings. Our team will serve every table at the same time, from tens to hundreds of people. You can obtain banquet staffing from our hospitality staffing agency for either a single event or as a regular occurrence. Well-trained, checked and assessed, we can provide anything from a worker or two through to an entire event staffing team.

Bartenders

Regardless of someone's experience, all of our staff must go through our extensive HTI training program. All bartenders are required to be TIPS certified, which is a four-hour class on alcohol intervention procedures. Our bartending services are suitable for both long- and short-term positions. You can also hire a bartender for a party or some other special occasion. Even if you've been let down at short notice, we've normally got a high-grade bartender on hand to save the day!

House keeping

Flexible housekeeping staff is essential so that you have the right coverage for busy periods without being overstaffed during the quieter times. Our agency can ensure you have the correct staffing balance to meet your requirements. We’re proud to note our room attendants are consistently listed at the top of posted room inspection scores.

Food Service

Catering staff is always in demand! From food preparation to service, we provide food service staff for every level of establishment. We only allow suitably trained and checked individuals onto our books, ensuring that employers are picking from a high-caliber pool of talent when they turn to us for catering workers.

Laundry

Whether you need someone to cover during the sickness of another staff member or simply need additional help on a temporary basis, we have suitably experienced workers ready to start on your job, often at very short notice. Our employees follow your procedures so your linens are handled properly.

Grounds keeping

We understand that many groundskeeping tasks are seasonal ones, which is why temporary workers can be such an advantage. Our associates have experience in golf courses, ground cover, weed control, edging, and mowing. If you wish, we can also complete all the payroll and related admin when it comes to your short-term groundskeeping employees.

Stewarding

Dishwashing is a key part of any hospitality venture! We can provide a few dishwashers or an entire department, covering your stewarding needs across Washington DC, Alexandria, Richmond and Arlington, VA and Baltimore, MD.
