We have teamed up with a number of hospitality industry figureheads who will add invaluable experience and know-how to our efforts to revive the hospitality sector.


With many lifetimes of experience across the industry between them, the cohort’s belief in Stint only serves to underline our credentials as a game changer for hospitality businesses of all kinds.

Notable figures joining our advisory board include Brigid Simmonds, the current Chair of the Betting & Gaming Council and ex-CEO of the British Beer and Pub Association, Andy Holness, former Ei Group HR Director, Fiona Ryland, Chief Operating Officer at University College London and ex-HR Director of Compass Group UK & Ireland, former Chief Executive Officer of WH Smith Stephen Clarke and Dino Rocos, ex-John Lewis Partnership Operations Director.

Brigid Simmonds, who is also Vice President and previous Chair of the Sport and Recreation Alliance, said: “Stint is a wonderful, entrepreneurial young company, whose drive and enthusiasm is second to none.

“They have real expertise in matching students to operators, understanding the needs of both and have the solution to enable businesses to staff perfectly on an hour-by-hour basis whilst making a difference to the bottom line.

“At a time when young students need all the help we can give, Stint is offering them and the businesses they serve real and sustainable opportunities.”

Andy Holness added: “I was first introduced to Sam and Sol [Stint co-founders] during my time at Ei Group and I was immediately impressed by their drive, determination and transparency to help hospitality businesses, no matter how big or small, to operate more efficiently and give students a smarter way to make money.

“Providing exceptional customer experiences is the sole driver behind any business and more so than ever in the post-pandemic world; having Stint at your fingertips gives companies an additional tool to utilise when operating at peak while maintaining the lowest labour costs possible.”

Stephen Clarke said: “When I first heard about Stint, I thought the concept was brilliant. It was clear to me that this is going to be a gamechanger for the high-street and allow businesses to operate much more efficiently. I’m pleased to be providing a helping-hand to the team as they expand across the UK.”

Our co-founder Sam Schlagman is excited to be tapping into the wealth of knowledge that Stint can now draw upon.

He said: “It is an absolute privilege to be working with some of the most well-respected individuals in their respective sectors and their strategic counsel has already proved invaluable as we start to engage with more and more businesses ahead of reopening.

“We strongly believe that Stint will revolutionise the way operators cater for busy periods post lockdown, and in the process giving them a fighting chance of survival.”
