I have been with BK Events for 3 months now, and have been asked to write a short piece on what my experience has been like so far.
I started early June and took on the role of Business Admin Apprentice, my role includes taking booking over the phone, through e-mail and answering queries. I am also responsible for a lot of the general admin for the office, as time goes on I am taking on more responsibilities and enjoying the challenge.
Working at BK events does have some perks, we are often receiving deliveries of brand new castles, I normally get the chance to test them out. The Red Party Giant Slide came in last week, which was great fun, the castle really stands with yellow and red as the colour. Another castles that came was the Party Themed Slide Combo, this I belive is great for kids under the age of 12, it has plenty of space to bounce as well as a slide. I am really looking forward to some of the new castles which are coming one in particular is the Rush Slide, this castles has a vertical drop at the top, unlike any inflatable slide in the UK.
In addition to the new castles arriving, I do like the office in which Bouncy kings is based. It is situated in Green acres, Birstall, Leicester within a long line of offices, with plenty of green and a great view . There is also a caffe across from us which I have to try and resist, one because of my waistline and two because of my bank balance. The office itself has glass windows on one wall so even on those sunny days you do get to enjoy some of the sun. The atmosphere is friendly, relaxed and amusing and hardworking all qualities which I think are important for any office. The Managers Ant and Louise are also very kind to us the other week they arranged a BBQ at lunch, we were also taken out for lunch the week before, so there has been no complaints from me.
I have managed to get myself out of the office, some weekends I offer to work out on an event, which involves manning a castles. The last event I took part in was at De Montfort Hall, there was a christian event called Follow 2016, it was a family day with speeches, stalls and a couple of Bouncy Kings castles a 20x20 Fete Castle, which is great for large events and Jungle Party Slide Combo, it was quite a relaxed day all the people who attended were very friendly. Another event I went to was at University of Leicester, for an end of term party. The Dash And Grab as well as the Last Man Sweeper were there two of my favourite inflatables, they are great for large events and can really get people involved.
That concludes my 3 months at Bouncy Kings, a small in sight of my experiences so far I am sure I will be back with more to tell you once I hit 6 months.
