Why do I need to pay a deposit to work at events?

Many event organisers insist that all temporary staff suppliers have a refundable deposit system in place. The deposit payment is to stop staff applying, then either not turning up, or turning up, taking their staff pass and running off into the event.

We'd prefer not to have to ask for deposits but it's cut the problem from around 40% to 3%.

Temporary staff are part of the event's staff schedule thus event licence; if 40% of the event's staff weren't available the event would be in breach of its licence.

When a deposit is withheld this is withheld by the event not DC Site Services Ltd.
