    That seems like a great job! Does the uni let you take exam season off as well? Where do you get to travel, is it just wherever the uni is marketing itself?
    It's all casual work so I just sign up to work as and when I can =) but i usually sign up to alot =)

    It's across the whole UK and Isle of Man =) They've done a couple of European events but the work for those goes so fast =P
