Work is year round however it’s generally quieter over January and early February, the Easter holiday period and from the end of July through August – as is the nature of the events world within this sector.  These quieter times usually tie in well with travel plans (European Ski and winter trips over the January/February period, European travel and festivals/sail Croatia etc. over summer).

There is still work over this time, however hours are part time. If you are wanting full time work over these holiday periods, we have alternate jobs on UK Live, Work & Play that can help fill these gaps. Ask us for more info.
