Event Site Operations
Being a part of our event operations team is an exciting challenge and we are looking for detail-oriented individuals eager to show pride in their work. Your primary responsibility will be ensuring the event site is clean, and organized and that infrastructure is not damaged or has been moved. It is a requirement that our paid guests have the opportunity to enjoy a clean environment with minimal discrepancies. Our mission is to keep this beautiful location as clean, safe and organized as possible and return it back to the general public in the same shape we received it from.
Parking is the first and last thing in each of our guests’ trips when they attend Wings Over Windsor Beach Edition and we must ensure that it runs smoothly and efficiently. Parking lots will be available around the Municipality of Leamington for guests to Park N’ Ride at the event site. We will require Parking teams to be available at each of those lots to assist in smooth operations, excellent customer service and ensure our transportation system is as efficient as possible. If you are interested in logistics and providing excellent guest services, you will love the chance to be on our parking operations squad.
It’s no secret that large-scale events are highly complex and require significant presence to ensure crowd control plus safe and secure operations. Our Public Safety responsibilities will include ensuring our guests have a safe environment and are not infringing on the safety of our show, other guests and the aircrew visiting. You will ensure that people do not enter the show site without authorization or tickets. Additional duties will be ensuring that when (not if), people exit the designated primary guest area, we communicate to the proper channels to reach a solution.
Think of this role as the face-to-face responsibility of making sure our guests feel welcomed, listened to and appreciated. You will be available on the event site checking in on our guests, answering questions, providing accommodations and handing out giveaway items and representing our brand with excellent customer service qualities.
Event Setup & Teardown
Our primary goal is to return our event’s primary site area to the Municipality of Leamington the same way we received it. Our event setup and tear-down team will be on-site, helping assemble infrastructure, securing our show site, helping coordinate logistics and assisting our contractors in their deliveries. You will work with the Director of Guest Experience to ensure all vendors, infrastructure and temporary structures are assembled properly and according to maps. You will also help with the teardown after the event and the exodus of infrastructure, vendors and other temporary structures.
