Working Festivals

The summer festival season is almost upon us and actually for some it has already started! This is a great time of year to get a foot in the door work-wise.
As the weekends fill up, and crew get harder and harder to find, it is a good time to start re-visiting any contacts you have. The company that thought you were “ok” a few months ago “but maybe not just yet…” may well be up to their eyeballs in work with nobody to do it. This is a great opportunity to remind people you are out there and willing to work. Stress you are available and willing to drop everything to get out and work. Yes, you have your bags packed, wellies on and sporting the latest in designer rainwear! Festival work can be the best, and the worst, but it is always memorable. So get those emails going, chase up every contact you have made and get yourself a bit of summer work. The pay will be dreadful, the food even worse, but if you work hard, keep cheerful, your name will be closer to the top of the list when the proper work comes in! You never know, it might be sunny!!!
