Who are we?
We are Xtras, a mobile platform connecting between employers in the events industry and temporary workers and job-seekers. We give temporary works and job-seekers flexible work options. They have the ability to choose when, when and for how much to work, with no obligation to a certain amount of shifts.
We want to be the world’s largest platform enabling millions of people earn some extra money, whenever they can and want.
What are we looking for?
We are looking for amazing people to join our platform as workers.
An event is like a show, unique and different every day, and we are looking for people who want to take part in that show. People who love people, people which come to work with a smile, with the right attitude, who want to take part in making someone’s dream a reality and understand the responsibility that comes with it, people with that Xtra something ;)
Our success depends on everyone accepting personal responsibility for doing the right thing, so we have some expectations from workers using the platform.
As a worker you are not obliged to undertake any work or assignment via the Xtras App, however if you do accept any work or assignment via Xtras you will be obliged by the following:
At point of accepting an offer from the Client via the Xtra App, you agree that you expect to be of able mind and body to carry out the responsibilities of the job offer.

Arriving to Work on Time
Not arriving on time as agreed in a booking will not be tolerated. Consistent lateness will result in your expulsion from the Xtras App. You must arrive at each venue 15 minutes before the starting time in order to have time to change into your uniform if required and report to a manager/supervisor. If you are late the client may send you home and you will not be paid for the event. If you are going to be late please contact Xtras, even if it is outside of office hours, so that Xtras can notify the Client.
If you accept a job from a Client via the Xtras App please attend. If you accept a job from a Client and you are not able to attend work, you should notify Xtras straight away by cancelling your booked job via the Xtras App. You will have until 24 hours before the start of shift to cancel via the Xtras App. If you fail to contact Xtras within this time period or do not show up for the start of your shift you will excluded on the Xtras App. Two exclusions will result in expulsion from the Xtras App.
