London-based event marketing specialists, Live Innovations have a unique approach to recruitment. Rather than judging applicants on their education or experience prior to an interview, the firm insist on looking beyond a person’s resume. The company chose to assess an individual’s ability in person, remaining open minded at all times and firmly maintaining a mantra of “No experience? No problem!”
“The majority of our staff and contractors joined us with little to no experience in this industry. We believe as long as someone possesses a strong work ethic and desire to succeed, a keen student mentality and is committed to going above and beyond in the name of success, we can provide them with the relevant knowledge and experience required to become a key player,” expressed Tom Harris, Live Innovations Managing Director.
When it comes to talent acquisition, Live Innovations do not specifically look for a particular skill set or education, instead simply interested in finding new recruits who continuously o always strives to do their best, who is ready to grow with a company and has a friendly and professional manner. All new starts undergo full training, regardless of experience, as the firm invests time into ongoing education through client and in-house workshops and regular conferences and seminars.

Sometimes people with previous experience in a similar role will have developed bad habits that can be difficult to override. However, if someone comes in with an entirely clean slate they can quickly be taught the correct strategies and methods applied by the company. “Someone with no experience is like a blank piece of paper and allows us to teach them exactly how we do it at Live Innovations,” said Mr Harris.
Live innovations believe one of their biggest strengths is their diverse workforce made up of individuals from a variety of backgrounds including communications, hospitality, catering, retail, sports and fitness and events. Mr Harris believes in hiring individuals for all walks of life and insists that Live Innovations open minded approach to recruitment, welcoming professionals from various different occupational backgrounds, has given them a competitive edge.
