Temporary Staff at Cheltenham Gold Cup

Temporary Staff at Cheltenham Gold Cup

Temporary Staff at Cheltenham Gold Cup

As we hit 2024, there is nothing bigger in Gloucestershire than race week. It is great for Cheltenham and the surrounding areas. As people flood in from around the country, there is a huge need for temporary staff across various services and hospitality roles. This year, RE recruitment is proud to offer several roles with our partners for candidates who are looking to make some money without having to bet on a horse. 

What roles are there at the Gold Cup? 

With the huge influx of people, there are many roles, from front of house to support roles and much more. So, no matter your experience, there is an opportunity for you. We are currently placing roles in the following: 

  • Bar staff
  • Waiting staff
  • Porters
  • Kitchen Porter
  • Cleaners
  • Litter pickers 
  • Housekeeping team
  • Toilet attendants

Who can apply? 

With the short amount of training time and the level of service expected at such a prestigious event, we are asking for those with relevant experience in serving and handling food for our bar and waiting staff roles. 

For our porter and cleaner roles, we are open to those without experience but are looking for reliable people who can work as an individual and as part of a larger team. 

How long is the contract?

The races are on for four days (Tuesday 12th March – Friday 15th March) and whilst we would love everyone to commit to all four days, we understand that some may only be able to do a few. If you are not able to commit to the whole festival, we would still love to hear from you. 

Shift times will vary by the role; most of our roles take part during the festival and require our staff to work 8am – 6pm. A few of our roles require staff to work outside of these hours to help Cheltenham Racecourse for the next day. 

What is the pay?

All of our roles range from £10.42 – £13.26 per hour and will be discussed with you on a role basis. Depending on your role it is common for happy customers to give you tips, these are yours to keep or can be split with your colleagues, but this is solely your own responsibility.

Working beyond race week

At Re Recruitment, we help place hospitality staff all year long at a number of exciting events. If you are successful in being placed during the Gold Cup festival, we can help place you at a number of events throughout the year, meaning that you always have the opportunity for work. 

How to apply 

If you feel you are right for any of our roles, there are two ways you can apply TEXT – ‘RACES + YOUR NAME’ to 07384118438 for immediate registration or use this form to express your interest.
