5 Reasons You’ll Want to Work Peak

As you can imagine, November and December are typically HUGE months for hospitality and retail businesses. At Catapult, this year’s busy festive season (we call it ‘Peak’!) is no different. Well, actually, it is different – it’s our busiest yet!

The great thing about all this? It’s an excellent time for you guys to cash in and take advantage of all the shifts with exciting new employers that we have on at the moment! Need more reasons why working during Peak is a good idea? We’ve got plenty!

Shifts are in the bag!

It’s all hands on deck for venues needing staff! If you apply to work (particularly if you apply to multiple shifts with the same employer) you’re almost guaranteed to snag the ones you want. We’re expecting you’ll have hundreds to choose from so make sure you’re checking the app regularly to score the shifts that really interest you!



We always have a wide range of employers posting shifts but Peak is where things really heat up. Not only do we have our regulars posting jobs, we’ve got a whole bunch of new companies looking for staff too!

It’s a great chance to try out a new role or work somewhere you’ve never been before. Think of it as dipping your toe in and testing the waters in a new environment!


Preparing for January

On the flipside of Peak, January and February tend to slow down a lot, with many employers reducing the number of shifts they’re post quite dramatically. Unfortunately, as much as we’d like to, it means we can’t offer as many shifts as usual.

For this reason, we recommend you take advantage of peak in order to squirrel away some extra nuts ahead of the quiet winter months.


Get more WorkMates!

More people working means more chances to meet new WorkMates. Say ‘hi’ to a fellow Catapult staff member to make a new connection. Add them to your WorkMates in the app and, hey presto, you’ve got another friendly face at your future shifts.


The Christmas Parties

Peak coincides with Christmas, and for a lot of people, that means parties! Lots of our venues will be hosting these events and, we have it on good authority, they’re some of the funnest shifts to work! You’ll get to see firsthand how the lavish hotels decorate the place, how stadiums celebrate the festive season (some employers even offer tips too!).
