So, what exactly is an ‘upskilling session’?

An upskilling session is designed to boost your skills and give you new ones. These particular events are specifically for Flexers working in the hospitality sector.  They take place over two  hours and will teach you certain things which  are essential to being successful in a waiting staff role. You’ll be assessed on the day, and provided you pass that assessment, your new skill (Academy Events Waiter) will be added to your profile, making you stand out to prospective employers.

What’s in it for me: why should I do this?

There are a whole host of reasons you should look to undertake one of our upskilling sessions:

– They’re 100% free – no charge whatsoever
– They’ll allow you to gain a new skill as an ‘Academy Events Waiter’
– This verification will see you added to employer talent pools
– You’ll therefore see more jobs on the app, and more high-end ones
– You’ll learn brand new skills, or refresh existing ones
– You stand to boost your confidence, in offering 5-star service.

The sessions will cover a number of things in relation to offering high-quality service as waiting staff, but will mainly focus on:

– Table setting standards
– Wine service
– Event Team/Snake service

One last thing: what should you wear?

What our Flexers say about Indeed Flex

It took one day for me to be able to find work! I’ve had a great experience. That’s why I’ve stayed with Indeed Flex for three years.



Having lost my job, I sought something flexible to allow me to pursue my university studies and second career while earning money at the same time. As much as you want to work, you can do.



What brought me to Indeed Flex was the flexibility to work in different places as it gives you the opportunity and freedom to be creative as a chef.



Indeed Flex gives me the opportunity to feel financially stable. I was amazed at the control of how many hours I wanted to do, where I wanted to work; the location, the client, and the type of shift.
