Summer Crew Member in Theale

A fantastic opportunity to work outdoors all over the UK.

What are you going to do

Crew for Stunning Tents, Ten by Fifteen Structures & The Sail Tent Company 2018 and beyond!

Theale, Reading RG7 4PD

Rate of Pay: £8.00 - £10.00

The season is from Now until the end of September 2018. With work continuing for some throughout the winter and beyond (90% of our full time team have been recruited in this way). Hours and days of work vary as required by the business (including some weekends) and you can expect most days to start at 6:15am at the warehouse. This job offers the opportunity for plenty of work over a fairly short period of time, the days are often long and the season is for people who want to work outside, using their hands as well as their minds and manners. It is only suitable for people with circumstances that make this desirable.

Anyone after a "normal" or "9-5" job should not apply.

Inspired by the desire to be different, we hire a range of unusual tents and furnishings, working for some of the UK's biggest events companies and most exclusive private parties. We are recruiting warehouse operatives and crew members to support the operations team to carry out our rental jobs. Working on site in the spring/summer this will involve: travel to site, build and dismantle our stunning tents and interiors then returning to the warehouse to prepare for the following day.

Further opportunities for the right candidates will become available within the operations department.

This is an unusual, physical and inspiring job - setting up, dismantling, and maintaining our Tents at festivals, weddings, private parties and corporate events. We work hard, take great pride in what we achieve and have an excellent reputation for customer service. Most of the time we work in beautiful parts of the countryside, and there's great job satisfaction to be had creating a stunning structure on a bare patch of lawn.
