Working for SEP isn’t your average job!

The times you work will vary depending on the event. Events take place all around the country, so you will need a driving licence and be prepared to travel. The main SEP team stay on site at each event and you would need to do the same. The hours are often long and it can be hard work but there is plenty of work.
