Responsibilities include - - Loading and offloading of our vehicles. - Working outside, on our marquee sites, with our current team, building our structures safely and in a timely manner. - Often we work in close proximity to our clients so we would like our staff to maintain a chatty and positive demeanour, showing professionalism and a good attitude. You do not need to have worked in the industry before, as training will be provided on site, but previous experience in marquees or event work would be advantageous. Ideally candidates will be available to start within a week. If you are hardworking, physically fit and work well as part of a team this is an excellent way to earn good money over the summer.
