Elite Tents Ltd. Vacancies – Senior Crew member
Start date: April/May 2020
Do you love the outdoors?
Are you strong?
Do you enjoy working in a team?
Elite Tents are currently recruiting for senior team members to join our successful tipi building teams. Elite Tents is one of the leading tipi hire companies in the UK and is based in the Midlands. We hire out large linkable tipi structures and clear sided sailcloth tents, mainly for weddings and private parties, but also for some festivals and corporate events. Most of our events are in the Midlands area, though we do at times travel further afield.
You would be working on rental jobs, both erecting and dismantling our Tipi and Sailcloth tents and as senior crew would need to take initiative and to help with shaping and leading the team. You would also be involved in the loading of vehicles, travelling to site, erecting, and then later dismantling our amazing tents, furnishing them and finally carrying out cleaning and maintenance tasks at the warehouse.
We have built up an excellent reputation for customer care and all crew are expected to work hard and take a pride in what they do. That said, while the work is hard, it is very satisfying as we are outside, in the fresh air and very often in some beautiful areas of the countryside.

However if you’re willing to work the hours we will reward you with a satisfying job working as part of a close knit, fun team of people.
