We recruit each year for Marquee Erectors to join our team for the peak season. The full Marquee season is April to October, but we have shorter term roles according to availability. We start actively recruiting in March until we fill all vacancies.
Our seasonal marquee erectors work with and support the permanent team to build marquees for weddings, parties and corporate events. The role is physically demanding and involves being outside in all weathers, but as our team will tell you it is a rewarding and a very varied job. We have university students who will join us for several seasons on temporary contracts.
We work Sunday to Monday each week, with everyone taking turns to work on Sundays. We recruit for full time roles (5 day weeks) and also part time (3 or 4 days), as we can easily work 12+ hour days many of our seasonal staff choose to work 3 or 4 days a week. We start each day at 7am (7.30am in non-peak season) and work until the job is finished and ready loaded for the next build.
The main role includes building marquees, laying flooring, setting up furniture and installing electrics/lighting. Other aspects of the job include driving vans and trailers (depending on licenses) loading vehicles, picking orders and cleaning and maintenance of the equipment.
