How do we fill positions?

Positions are allocated by the Operations and Management team.

Generally, the first positions to be filled are the Job Lead and Team Leader roles as these positions hold responsibility and will lead the rest of the crew onsite. Teams perform at their best when there is crew with experience amongst those who are new, and as such, we will look at applicants who have worked with DC Site Services previously before then allocating positions to crew who are new. This ensures that those who dedicate their entire summer to the Company are kept in work, while also integrating new crew with little to no experience. If there are positions available and only new applicants who have applied, in this aspect only will we allocate positions on a first-come, first-served basis. This will ultimately come down to who has completed their profile first.

We only refuse applications for one of the following reasons:

  1. There are more applicants than positions available.
  2. The applicant does not fulfil the criteria for the specific job role they have applied to.
  3. If it is ascertained the applicant has previously been unapproved from working by DCSS or another festival organisation which recruits and/or manages staff and/or volunteers.
  4. The applicant fails a PNC check.
