Summer Staffing Recruitment 2017

Loowatt Team at port eliot Festival 2015 united kingdom

Loowatt is hiring for its summer Outdoor Events season. Come join us!

Loowatt is pioneering innovation in sustainable sanitation. Our toilets are odourless, chemical-free, and energy-generating thanks to patented technology we’ve developed right here in the UK.  A biodegradable polymer film ‘flushes’ through the toilet, providing a fresh, clean toilet bowl for every use.  We also use the same core technology to build toilets in Madagascar for communities that need sanitation.

Our London-based startup has been featured in a variety of news publications, including the BBC, Wired, The New York Times, and The Guardian.


Summer Hiring Needs!

For another summer season, Loowatt is heading to music and wellness festivals (think: Wilderness, Port Eliot, Noisily, and many others) and other outdoor events across the UK, including the Royal Windsor Horse Show. Loowatt provides Wristband and Pay As You Go access to our high quality, sustainable loos and hair and makeup tents, significantly upgrading the event experience for our customers.

We need events staff to help make this season a success!
