This is an opportunity for a person in their late teens to early twenties to assist and learn the craft of a professional Wedding D.J. I am aware that the phrase wedding D.J. may carry a stigma to some, those people need not apply!
The service I provide is, in my opinion, the very best in Essex, Suffolk, London and beyond it has been a financially lucrative business for over 25 years and the name ‘The Wedding Party’ is synonymous with attention to detail, quality and reliability.
The person I’m looking for will need the following:
Ø Be available most Saturdays and Sundays during summer also some Fridays and Bank Holiday Mondays.
Ø Smart appearance, during a function I am usually in evening ware, I do not expect the same of you but jeans and a tee shirt is NOT acceptable.
Ø Physically fit, there is a lot of equipment to carry in and out again, I don’t care if you are male or female as long as you can carry weights of 25KG up three flights of stairs and then back down again (as I had to do when engaged for a function in the ballroom of the London Savoy!)
Ø NO Smoking, NO Vaping.
Ø Preferably able to drive with a clean license.
As things progress you would be expected to:
Ø Learn my music catalogue, I use mainly C.D’s but also USB Sticks, you will need to find songs as I call them and replace them in their correct place once played.
Ø Take control of the system; I learned my craft by playing the ‘warm up hour’ and I still think it is the best way to get started
Ø Engage with the crowd; from taking requests (and learning how to say ‘no’ in the right way to the requests that are just not suitable) to, after some basic microphone training, making announcements.
Ø Accompany me to wedding exhibitions (flat fee plus commission)
In return you will receive a negotiable cash in hand flat fee that will increase as you take on more duties. I will be retiring in the next two to four years if you have reached or surpassed my standard and you want to take the venture forward you will inherit all of the equipment (and I’m always updating it). Plus I will sign over the name ‘The Wedding Party’ so you have a recognised brand moving forward
