At Fake Festivals, we believe our team of staff play a big part in creating a great atmosphere and helping the festival goers get the most out of the experience.
To share our journey and work in the staff team you will need to register a profile with us. If approved, you then tell us which festival location/dates you are available and with a bit of luck you could receive a job offer.
The job roles of staff can include bar work, litter clearance, door check-in and looking after the festival goers. You do not need experience to be part of the team, but it can help with your registration. Jobs are allocated during the event and you may change job roles as the need arrises.
We will ask for ID when you arrive at the festival, to verify your age and confirm your identity.
We pay you to work the full duration of the event, which can be up to 12 hours depending on which event you are working. During your working time there will be an initial staff briefing and rest/food breaks will be given (you can buy your food/drink from the traders, or bring your own). Pay is £100.00 gross - you will receive £80.00 cash on completion of your shift. Tax and National Insurance contributions are paid at source and you will receive appropriate payslips and paperwork which you can use to claim these deductions back from HMRC if applicable.
The registration process is undertaken in Facebook Messenger and handled by Fakebot, our friendly Fake Festivals robot 🤖. During the process you will be asked for contact details, then personal profile information and finally which job roles are suitable for you.
We use Messenger for ease of communication with the staff team, so we can send job offers and employment notifications. The use of Messenger is a requirement of our system. You do not need a Facebook account to use Messenger, you can use the Messenger App on your mobile and simply register your mobile number to gain access.
If your profile is suitable we will send you an approval notification through Messenger and you can then tell us which festival location/dates you would like to work.
To start the registration process, enter the system via the 'Staff Management' button.
If you need to make changes to applications, accept/decline job offers or tell us you can/cannot attend jobs, you should re-enter 'Staff Management' via the button and Fakebot will take it from there.
