What is DJ KitKat?

We’re one of Sydney’s leading kids DJs & children’s entertainers specialising in birthday parties, school discos, and public DJ performances for family audiences. (Kids, Tweens & Teens: 5-12 yrs old).

About the Role:

This part-time position requires mostly Friday afternoon/evening and weekend work driving to various party locations including private homes, community halls, schools, and public events. You feel confident working solo or with other entertainers. Most discos go for 2-3 hours and trained entertainers would have up to 1 – 4 parties per weekend depending on availability.

Responsibilities:

The primary purpose is to conduct children’s discos utilising music, games, choreographed dance routines, and a happy energetic disposition.
The scope of work involves preparing playlists, driving to & from parties, set-up & pack-down of equipment, performance of gig, and promoting DJ KitKat discos at the end of each event.

To be successful in this role you will have:

Essential Criteria:
  1. Eligible to work in Australia, exceptional English-speaking skills required
  2. Have your ‘Working with Children’s Check’ (WWCC) Clearance Certificate
  3. Motivated and committed to work weekends including Friday afternoons, nearly every Saturday
    or Sundays for 3 – 4 hour blocks of time
  4. Have own reliable car, current driver’s licence and be willing to drive to gigs around Sydney (predominantly north side with occasional Sydney metro work)
  5. Have excellent time management skills
  6. Dance skills to teach kids simple dance moves
  7. Have performance showmanship, stamina & boundless energy
  8. Must LOVE interacting with kids
Desirables:
  1. Confident enough to lead a party room (usually up to 20-30 kids)
  2. Ideally, be based within 30 mins drive from the North Shore or the Northern Beaches (all training and most parties will be in these areas).
  3. Has a desire to help grow our business & brand
Our Values:

Drive: We value people who are hungry for and not afraid of hard work, ie. available, reliable and committed to work and going above & beyond when it’s required.

Humility: We are interested in true ‘Team Players’ who can work together and have each other’s backs,
ie. they share credit and emphasise team over self. Humility = “Thinking less of yourself, not thinking of yourself less”.

Authenticity: The key to our success is authentic connection & engagement with kids and family audiences resulting in memorable experiences. We strive for two-way connection or energy exchange with our audiences, rather than a one-way performance showing off one’s skills.

Fun & Openheartedness: This is a job with heart… when we feel it, our audience does too! We care about and have a real love for working with kids, fun & friendliness is a part of who we are. We get a buzz out of empowering children and generally like making people feel happy.

What we offer:
  • An excellent rate of pay dependent on talent and/or experience, between $40 – $50 per hour.
  • A paid comprehensive training program to bring entertainers up to speed with all aspects of the role, including on-line, in studio, and live-gig training.
  • On-going professional development: performance feedback & evaluations, team jam workshops, public performance opportunities to develop performance skills and audience connection.
  • We aim to provide a culture that is collaborative and supportive.
  • We are entering an exciting stage in our business development. We see this is an opportunity for a passionate and committed individual to join us on this journey.

Only applicants with full rights/eligibility to work in Australia will be considered for this opportunity.
