All the Recruitment!

Posted on 19 Feb 2020

Preparing for a new festival season takes a lot more than making sure we have enough glowsticks and litter picking bags in stock (unfortunately). Hundreds of hours of logistical planning go into preparing to service any event or festival, and a large part of that preparation includes how we intend to provide staff for that event. This is where the office team cracks their knuckles and gets to work. You’ll have seen our adverts for Team Leaders & a Store Co-ordinator & LVG driver already read more...

Nearly 500 applications & still time to win a £25 Amazon voucher!

Posted on 05 Feb 2020

Six days after opening up applications and we’re happy to see that nearly 500 applications have come through already! As mentioned in Friday’s post, we’ve globally unapproved all DCSS PAAM profiles to ensure that everyone is starting this festival season with an up to date application form (your profile). This helps us in the long run with regards to accreditation and payroll purposes, but also cuts down the admin time spent chasing these details during peak-periods. As such, you’ll possibly re read more...

Goodbye to Deposits!

Posted on 21 Jan 2020

DC has always implemented a deposit system, acting as a security bond and returned to you once your assignments are completed (standard practice for most Event & Festival Contractors). We’re continuously looking at how it is we operate as a company, and how it is we can improve upon our methods with one ultimate goal in mind: making Events & Festivals accessible to all. We believe that these deposits, particularly the smaller ones, have become a stumbling block when it comes to applying read more...
