Event Support Staff

Part time, Temporary
Posted 1 year ago

OLGA (that’s us), a Hackney-based brand and events agency and North London Waste Authority (Wise up to Waste), will be hosting a busy programme of Swish and Style events this winter. The aim is to encourage people who live, work or study in the north London boroughs (Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Hackney, Haringey, Islington and Waltham Forest) to adopt more sustainable approaches to fashion.

Events will be accompanied by workshops where participants can learn skills to take home and use on their clothes again. These include upcycling, screen printing, repair, fabric dyeing, and Japanese techniques such as boro and sashiko.

Sound interesting? Well, we’re recruiting a team of event staff to assist us in running these events.

The Role

We’re recruiting a pool of people who will be able to support us in setup and takedown, clothes sorting, workshop support, gathering feedback and helping the lovely people who come to our events.

You’ll need to be hands-on and keen to support where needed. The events will be busy, so you’ll need to be clear and happy about what you’re doing and willing to switch tasks as and when needed.

Ideally, we will need each person to commit to 3 events across the programme. Please note that we would look to schedule people at events in neighbouring boroughs for convenience, and this will be discussed and agreed as a team.

We will need some people to be listed as backup staff in the event of sickness of other team members also to be agreed in advance.

The Events

  • 2 per borough – Venues tbc
  • 2 elements – Clothes swap and workshops
  • December to March
  • Saturdays between 1-6 (There may be some weekday evening events to be agreed in advance)
  • Each event runs for 3 hours with an hour either side for setup and takedown

Wage: £10.55 p/h

How to Apply: Please send a CV and covering letter by 9am 1st November to info@olgaagency.com with Swish and Style in the subject line.
