Crew Chief and Summer Seasonal Crew

As we continually evolve and grow due to our dedication to deliver our stunning structures, our company is inspired by the desire to be different and we are always looking for exceptional people to join our team.

We are currently recruiting for a Crew Chief to work within our successful team leading on some of our rental jobs. You will load vehicles, travel to site, build and dismantle our Stunning Tents and interiors, and carry out cleaning and maintenance tasks at the warehouse, as well as other duties.

Crew Chief for the Stunning Tents Company and Ten by Fifteen Structures 2017 and Beyond! Inspired by the desire to be different, we hire and sell a range of unusual tents and furnishings, working for some of the UK’s biggest events companies and most exclusive private parties.

We are currently looking for Crew Chiefs to lead our core crew team in delivering events to clients across the country.

You will be required to:

  • Load vehicles

  • Receive and organise external vendors.
  • Manage, train and inspire our seasonal crew members.
  • Build and dismantle our stunning tents and interiors.
  • Carry out cleaning and maintenance tasks at the warehouse.

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.

You must:

  • Be reliable, courteous and honest with a professional attitude to your work.
  • Relish physically demanding work in an outdoors environment.
  • Be naturally enthusiastic with a positive attitude.

As a full-time employee you will be contracted to work 1700 hrs with the majority of these hours completed in the summer season, March until the end of September 2017 with work throughout the winter and beyond. 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 hours work over a fairly short period of time, the days are often long and the season is for people who want to earn allot of hours, outside, using their hands as well as their minds and manners.
