With the appointment of a new chairman, hires and partnerships, we are preparing for a year of huge transformation in 2022.

The last 18 - 24 months has been a challenging period for our industry, but it has also been a year that has provided some opportunities which have seen the business grow.

Last December, Seat Unique was named ‘Disruptor of the Year’ at The Ticketing Business Awards 2021. Winning an award in recognition of the technology we have created and how it’s transforming the marketplace is an incredible achievement and is something we are extremely proud of.  

In January 2022 we welcomed former Sky Bet CEO Richard Flint as our new Chairman. He will bring invaluable support and guidance to the business as we step up our efforts to achieve the new phase of growth.

Over the past 12 months, we have continued to achieve success by building on our partnerships with clubs and venues. We create value by digitally transforming their hospitality booking systems with our innovative technology, which has subsequently increased our partners online hospitality sales. Not only has this led to a strong partnership renewal rate, but a flurry of new partnership deals with prestigious clubs and venues.

As a result, the business is entering a significant period of growth and we are continuing to target further expansion as we build on our success. In the last 4 months, the Seat Unique team has grown to over 20 employees, based in London, UK and Wrocław, Poland. New hires have been taken on across all areas of the business including marketing, sales and tech.

We are currently on a recruitment drive to assist our growth. In order to support our rapid expansion, we are looking to hire employees across 8 new roles within the next 4 weeks. Read on to find out what we've been up to and how you could be a part of our exciting journey!
