We are now taking applications for Summer Staff 2024

Are you studying on a technical or events related course and looking to gain some practical experience working on festival and event sites all over the UK this summer? Our summer staff scheme is an opportunity to work alongside the IPS team and earn money whilst learning the ropes. Most of the summer work is Staging & Structures based (almost all our projects have a bit of LiteDeck on them somewhere!) although our work also regularly includes Rigging, Lighting, Sound, Video and Power Generation & Distribution.

- Gain Experience

- Develop Your Skills

- Make Connections

- Earn Money

The summer staff works as a paid fixed term contract typically running between May and October, although we can vary exact dates to suit individual applicants. Based in Milton Keynes, this role would involve working in our warehouse and on a range of event sites all over the UK. A lot of physical work is required within this role, so you would need to be prepared for an amount of manual tasks including regularly working outside. It is a great way to gain practical experience to support skills being learnt and find out how things really work onsite.

If this sounds like something that would suit you, please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with the subject line 'Summer Staff 2024' and include your contact details, a current CV and a brief explanation of why you would like to work with IPS. 

There is also scope for warehouse only based roles if you are less keen to get onsite, and we are also happy to discuss other placement or work experience based options if you are excited to work with us but the summer staff position doesn't quite work for you - please get in touch to discuss further.
