Event Site Staff / Riggers / Warehouse - Temporary Structures / Marquees
Saturday 31 August, 2019
Locations: Bristol - South England
Field & Lawn is one of the UK’s largest marquee hire companies, operating from four depots across the country. We are an energetic and forward thinking company looking for like-minded individuals to join our business.
We provide our structures for a huge range of uses including marathons, music and food festivals, sporting events, corporate hospitality and long terms storage.
We are also heavily involved in the supply and installation of Christmas lighting and city dressing, which includes many of London’s best known displays along with a further 50 or so installations to towns and cities across the UK.
As the summer season approaches we are looking for event site staff/riggers to boost our teams, working with our full time teams to install our structures.
This position is based from our yard in Brislington, Bristol and would suit fit and energetic individuals who are striving for that little bit extra. Some of the work will require staying away from home – accommodation and meals are arranged by the company.
Starting pay rate for candidates with a full car licence is £9.20 per hour rising to £9.60 after 100 hours and to £10.00 after a further 200 hours. Starting pay rate for non-drivers is £9.00 per hour rising to £9.40 after 100 hours and to £9.75 after a further 200 hours. Higher rates of pay would apply for those with previous experience of marquee installations and ability to drive other vehicles or forklifts.
You do not need any previous experience but would look for the following attributes:
- Ability to learn new skills
- To be a team player (which could be in a squad of up to 20 people)
- Enjoyment of physical work and the outdoors (whatever the weather)
- Reliability, good humour and flexibility.
- Category B (car licence) not necessary but may be advantageous
We are recruiting for both temporary summer roles and full time positions, including those looking to start a career in the events industry. We have multiple positions available immediately and we will continue to recruit as we build our team of site staff. We can accommodate immediate start dates as well as varied notice periods depending on individual circumstances.
Field & Lawn are an equal opportunities employer.
