Work For Us


Big Chief Tipis is a Bolton based tipi-hire company specialising in large event tipis for weddings, parties, festivals and corporate events.

We are recruiting Tipi Fitters to join our expanding team based at our headquarters. These will be full time roles with variable unsocial hours including early mornings and late finishes to coincide with the schedule of the Tipi hire business.

We promise to provide you with the ultimate outdoor job erecting Tipis in unique locations across the North-West and around the UK. Full training will be provided along with a starting wage of £8.50/hr, which will be reviewed following successful completion of a probation period.

In return we require hard workers with proactive minds and can do attitudes who can work flexible hours with early starts and late finishes during our peak season from May til October.

Basic joinery and woodwork skills would be advantageous as the role will involve a variety of tasks related to the building of tipis, plus the upkeep and repair of stock.

There will also be an element of driving within the role with priority given to applicants who possess B+E, C1 and C1+E licenses (including Tacho cards).

Please note; this is a labour intensive job and involves working at heights, heavy lifting and continuous working outdoors in challenging circumstances with some overnight stays and short periods of working away from our base in Bolton.

Apply with your CV and Cover Letter stating experience gained, current qualifications and supporting statements plus references which will be requested prior to appointment.

Please do not apply if you are currently unable to drive!
