Peterborough Events Assistant job vacancies


As a rapidly growing business, Red Event Photography is always on the lookout for outgoing and talented individuals looking to join us on a casual basis as event hosts.

We are based in Peterborough in Cambridgeshire and cater for a wide range of events including weddings, birthdays, corporate events and private parties. Our offerings include a variety of fun to use photo booths and a fun casino service with blackjack, roulette and poker tables.

As a business we are available 24/7, however the majority of our events take place at weekends and evenings, so being able to work at these times is a prerequisite. Don’t worry if you can’t work every week, we’ll do our best to give you the shifts that best meet your lifestyle, however reliability is an absolute must. You’ll be working at our clients’ once in a lifetime events. We don’t let them down.

What we are looking for

  • Outgoing and professional individuals
  • Speak fluent English
  • Tech savvy
  • Physically fit
  • Live in, or close to, our Peterborough base

Ideally you will also be a driver, with use of your own car, but this is not essential. You must be over 18 though, as the majority of our events take place in licenced premises.

The role

As an Events Assistant you will work as part of a team to unload, assemble and set-up our fun casino and photo booth equipment. While you don’t need to be a superhero, you do need to be relatively fit, as the assembly process involves an element of lifting and stretching.

During the event you will support the croupiers, shuffling the black jack cards and mucking the roulette chips to ensure the games run as quickly and smoothly as easily. You’ll also be showing guests how to use the photo booth, keeping an eye on the ink and paper and changing it when required. As you gain experience, you’ll be able to show guests how to play the games, help them learn in the practice area and stand in for the croupiers when required.

As a Red host, you’ll be on show during the event. We’ll provide you with a dapper uniform to be worn with a smile while working. You’ll need to be confident speaking to people from all backgrounds and you’ll radiate fun. Our guests are invariably out to have a good time and our job is to help them get the maximum enjoyment from their night out.


A typical event is between six to nine hours, including travel, set up and hosting. Our starting rate is £8 per hour, plus expenses and a mileage rate for staff using their own vehicles.

The position is initially on a zero hours/casual basis, but opportunities to work on a permanent basis may become available at a later time. Where possible, we will arrange rotas two to three weeks in advance.

Still interested?

Our staff really are our most valuable assets, without them we cannot deliver outstanding customer service. That’s why we want to look after you.

It goes without saying that reliability is of the absolute utmost importance. We also value a professional and positive attitude and immaculate grooming. If you think you’ve got what it takes then we’d love to hear from you.

We look forward to hearing from you.
