Region: Auckland Experience: Limited Experience Necessary

In this role, you will be setting up and packing down the Wildernest Glamping Tents for large festivals over the key dates in summer.  This is an event-by-event role, working for roughly 1-2 weeks at a time for each of the three festivals over the summer.   If you have had a Marquee rigging experience this would advantageous. 

Setting up the Glamping village entails long days in all weather conditions; be it sun or rain, so maintaining a positive attitude is key and working together as a team.

This role is usually tailored more towards the strong guys and girls who are fit and able-bodied in lifting heavy weights, ie: 40kg Tents  Having a positive can-do attitude no matter what the weather, and being able to take instruction from your team leader is key.   

You will be working with like-minded individuals, travelling for part of the summer and of course, being a part of the festival.

Must be flexible and happy to stay overnight on-site for up to a week at a time, while we set up and break down, have access to your own tent or van, and be capable of cooking for yourself while away.   We provide the facilities to cook with and you provide your own food. 

If you feel you meet the above expectations and are committed to being able to work on each event, please apply here.  Please send your CV with your photo including an email telling us a little about yourselves and any relevant experience you have.  

You must be fully vaccinated to apply.

Here are the dates you would need to be available for, or if you are only free for one, please indicate on your email application.  Thanks.
