Summer 2021 is coming! Are you ready?

Posted on Friday, January 29, 2021

If you have festival withdrawals like the rest of us, something you can do to prepare for this year is to check that the information you have listed on your DCSS PAAM profile is still relevant to you. What’s the use of applying to work at a festival if we can’t pay you because your account details are out of date?

Here’s a quick list of things to check:

  • Contact information! (Can we still reach you on the number and email address listed?)
  • Bank details
  • Tax declaration (make sure the correct statement is selected to avoid being overtaxed)
  • Entitlement to work in the UK documents (these MUST be in date)
  • Your photo (recently shaved your head? Be recognisable when you walk onsite and upload a current passport-quality photo)

The above listed are the essentials, however we recommend checking your entire profile while logged in. This is our first post-Brexit festival season, so each profile will need approving upon application, regardless of whether you were approved last season. If everything is still current and in date, then you won’t need to do anything!

Contact the office anytime (we recommend by email) should you have any problems with the above. Let’s start this festival season off on the right foot!

I just wanted to send out a big thank you to you and your team for all the work you and the team put into helping make the traffic and transport operation work so well this year.

As it was a pleasure having DC site services as part of our team. I think the GFEL team of contractors is the envy of a lot of events in the way we all support each other and it was noted by some observers that stated the following :- 

"simply put, GFEL’s off-site traffic management plan was delivered and managed in a totally consistent and defensible manner that sought to promote good practice, collaboration and road safety to the benefit of all road users."

The DC are big part of that delivery and should take some of the credit for that delivery.
