Peterborough event assistant vacancies

Can you help get the party started?

Love parties? Interested in earning some extra cash? Want to get experience in the events industry? Then read on. Red is always on the look out for talented individuals or couples to join us and help with our fun casino and photo booth parties.

The work is freelance or on a casual basis. In the summer, and December, there will be the possibility to work most Friday and Saturday evenings. For photo booth hires, you’ll be assisting more experienced colleagues in setting up the equipment, showing guests how to use the photo booths, keep the area safe and tidy and packing up at the end of the night. Some heavy lifting is involved.

On casino nights, you will again be helping to set up our tables. You’ll also help the games run smoothly by assisting the croupiers. We’ll ask you to shuffle the cards, sort chips and manage the distribution of fun money. You’ll also learn how to deal some of the less complicated games, such as the Money Wheel and blackjack. As you gain experience there will be an opportunity to take on more responsibility and learn new skills.

Applicants should be personable and presentable. We work at people’s parties and need to bring positive energy, discretion and a good work ethic. Reliability is a must. Many of the parties we attend are themed (1920s, James Bond, Las Vegas etc.) and require us to dress up appropriately. Uniforms will be provided and we ask that applicants take pride in their appearance.

Because of the late finishes, we require applicants to be over 18 years old. Being a driver is advantageous, but we can provide transportation to and from our base in the Fengate area of Peterborough. Starting pay rate is £10 per hour during training, but this will be increased with experience and we will offer a large premium for any working on Christmas Eve or New Year’s Eve. We’re also happy to hear from couples or friends looking to work together, as well as experienced dealers. Do note, however, that this is not a full time position, rather a fun way to earn some additional money.

If this sounds like a position for you, please send your CV and a short letter of application to
