Summer With hap: Flexible Roles That Work For You

Apply Now

The weather is finally hotting up – along with the festival line-ups and other exciting events taking place this summer. 

Now that the holidays are here and you’ve got some extra free time, finding a flexible part-time role makes the perfect supplement to your student loan. Plus, you might learn something new along the way.

At hap, we help students secure casual work to suit – and fund – their jam-packed summer schedules. Here’s what you can expect when you choose us.

Something for everyone

With a complete range of hospitality roles in locations throughout the UK – from bar and waiting staff to kitchen porters and front-of-house attendants – hap has something for everyone. 

And the best part? Along with getting to experience what goes on behind the scenes at some of the liveliest venues in your local area, you’ll have the opportunity to work at events that you would’ve bought a ticket for otherwise. The races? Staffed by hap. City stadium gigs? Staffed by hap. Festivals? You guessed it – staffed by hap.

Get paid to attend festivals

Speaking of festivals, hap also recruits for some of the biggest and best that the UK has to offer – giving you the opportunity to travel to stunning coastal locations and vibrant cities. What’s more – when you’re not on shift, you’re free to join in the festivities. It’s not very often you get to say you got paid to see some of your favourite music artists! 

In terms of food, accommodation and travel, we tend to provide two meals each day at camping festivals – usually in the form of a packed lunch and a meal voucher. You’ll be pitching your tent up in our exclusive free staff campsite, and we also provide free return transport from major cities depending on the festival.

Heading home for the summer?

If you’re at university in a different city to your hometown, we’re guessing you might be looking forward to going home and having someone else tidy your room for the next couple of months. The good news is that you can work for hap from two locations. 

All you need to do is send an email including your secondary address to our team at, and you’ll have the option to pick up shifts at home too.

hap trains you for free
