We are always looking to add freelance contractors to our list to fulfill roles within our large-scale events. We fill all of our logistics/planning & creative needs with our internal full-time staff, however we will reach out to our contractors for onsite assistance. Our needs are sporadic and depend on our booked events, so please note that this is completely a side job with an average of 4-5 working opportunities per year (can vary greatly depending on our needs and your availability). At this time, we are only looking for candidates in Austin, TX. 

 

As a freelance contractor for Red Velvet Events, you are essentially representing us and/or our Client when onsite, so the following attributes are crucial:

 

  • Professional
  • Responsive & Communicative
  • Fast-paced
  • Responsible
  • Able to problem solve with little to no direction
  • Positive Attitude 
  • Independent
