Why should I work for Pirate Crew?
Because we love what we do, we do it extremely well, and you will become part of a unique team of crew who are respected for their technical skills and reliability. That is something to be very proud of!
How do I start working for Pirate Crew?
Please click here and complete the form. If we think you have what it takes to become a Pirate we’ll give you a call!
Do I need to be registered as self-employed?
You will be working as a self-employed person so please provide us with your NI to begin with. You then have a 3 month grace period where you will need to be registered self-employed with HMRC, then let us know your Unique Tax Reference when you are provided with it. We will provide you with advice on how to do all this – just ask!
Will I get to meet the other Pirates before a job?
That is up to you. We have a Crew Hub area available on www.piratecrew.co.uk where you can network with other Pirates. We will provide you with a Password when we book you for your first job. You can also become friends with us on Facebook which is a great way to introduce yourself to your fellow Pirates!
Do I need a car?
No, but let us know if you do own one as we may ask you to use this for certain jobs, we will of course reimburse the relevant petrol costs.
How and when do I get paid?
We strive to pay our crew weekly, but you will certainly get paid within 2 weeks of a job. You will be sent a remittance by email when you have been paid.
How can I guarantee regular work?
We cannot guarantee you regular work due to the nature of the business. By being on time, hard-working, a team player and good fun we are much more likely to ring you first when work is available.
How can I improve my skills and gain qualifications?
By always listening and working as a team your skills will naturally improve. If you don’t know something – ASK! If you would like to gain certain qualifications e.g. Forklift licence, Rigging, Carpentry, we can aid you with finding the right course.
How do I travel to the job?
For jobs that are a distance from your home location, Pirate Crew will either organise transportation or reimburse your expenses. If a job is quite close to you, we will expect you to make your own travel arrangements but this will be made clear when you are booked for a job.
