Jobs At Maka Tipi

Current Vacancies

Seasonal Crew - Starting in April 2018

Maka Tipi is a boutique tipi and stretch tent company based in London and Kent, providing amazing and beautiful event structures for weddings, corporate events, festivals and parties around the UK and some parts of Europe.  As a boutique supplier of Tipis & Stretch Tents, Maka Tipi prides itself on our attention to detail, exceptional customer service and being one of the leading innovators within the marquee and event industry in the UK.

We are proud to be the first company to provide our customers with stunning white giant hat tipis for their events, which is why we are The Original White Kata Tipi Company.  

We currently have vacancies for seasonal crew who would like to work with us for the 2018 season. As part of our team, you would be setting up and building our fantastic structures, working on interior set ups, dismantling the tipis or tents and cleaning down our kit after the events. You would also be involved in loading and unloading our vehicles and other various tasks at our warehouse.

The job entails working some long hours and the occasional weekend and Bank Holiday during our peak season, which runs from May until September, but we do get to work outdoors, see some amazing places and visit some great parts of the UK and sometimes Europe too! It isn't your normal 9 - 5 job, but we have a lot of fun and get a huge amount of satisfaction from putting up our tipis and tents and then hearing all about the fantastic events they get used for and how greatful our lovely clients are for our hard work.

As a crew member, you should be:

Enthusiastic, motivated and hard working

Love and enjoy working in the outdoors

Punctual and reliable

Have experience of working in a fast paced environment and be a team player

Physically fit and strong, as the role can be demanding

Courteous and honest

Prepared to stay away from home overnight

Eligible to work in the UK

Be over 18 years

Have your own transport

Desireable but not essential:

Experience of working for a tipi/marquee provider - Full training will be provided should you not have any experience in this area

Full clean driving licence

Hours of work:

When leaving for jobs, we usually meet around 6am, so living within 1 hour of our warehouse in Tunbridge Wells would be helpful. On some of our larger jobs, we can work 12 hours, so you must be aware and be prepared for this.


We offer competative rates of pay for our crew and the opportunity for career progression for the right candidates.

To apply for one of our crew roles, please send a covering letter and CV to or call our London office on 0207 4503917.

Alternatively, you can apply by sending your letter and CV to Recruitment, Maka Tipi Ltd, 58 Gowrie Road, Battersea, SW11 5NR.

Closing date for applications is the 1st April, 2018.
