Is there a way to be notified on start of a Bamboo job?

We have HipChat notifications set up but none of the events available (e.g. "All Jobs Completed", "All Builds Completed" etc) meet our requirement. We would like to be notified only when a particular job (e.g. a "deploy" job) is started (not on completion).

I considered a custom solution but could not find a relevant class to code against e.g. if I were to write a plugin for this. The closest is com.atlassian.bamboo.event.JobCompletedEvent, but what I was looking for was something like "JobStartedEvent."

Is there any plan for support of such an event either through the API or the UI? Are there any current workarounds to satisfy this requirement?

Look at ChainStartedEvent, you can check if plan has the job you're interested in

 * Published when jobs from chain are added to queue.
 * It includes normal build, rerun and starting manual stage.
public class ChainStartedEvent extends ChainEvent

Or you can react on BuildQueuedEvent, it's triggered when job is added to queue

public class BuildQueuedEvent extends BuildContextEvent
