DC Site Services was established in 1993 by Dick and Janet Collins. Originally, this was to supply staff for various aspects of Greenfield Event Management and included site management, the provision of site crew, stewards for crowd control at both pedestrian and vehicle entrances and controlled parking of vehicles. DC Site Services was also the first company to offer a service to supervise, control and ensure public safety for campsite facilities provided by the promoters. The removal of litter and waste from events has also long been a part of the Events & Festivals services package offered.
Dick and Janet CollinsDick and Janet Collins have been involved with UK Events & Festivals since the late 60s when they started by supporting the local Samaritans fundraising team involved with the West Wycombe steam rally, an annual event of county show standing. The steam rally was the first to combine a rally during the day and a 'pop' show at night with Neil Sedaka and Roy Wood & Wizard topping the bill!
Additional support was provided to the steam rally by the promoters of the Reading Festival and this led to Dick and Janet joining the Reading Festival event team or as it was seen at the time 'training school' for outdoor event staff. This is the way that hands-on training was achieved as there were no colleges or universities offering courses at the time.
Dick and Janet worked at weekends on various shows over the following four years organised by the Reading Festival promoters. Following this, Dick worked on the Reading Festival show full time for a number of years before taking this experience to form DC Site Services Ltd.
The DC Site Services staff database ranges from students looking for extra money to help them through their studies, to professionals wanting an escape from the 9-5 and to those who work at Events & Festivals year-round. No matter the reason for applying to work with DC Site Services, our staff are well-known for being fully committed and usually enjoy the experience so much they return year after year.
