You’re hired! (maybe) Internship at GP Manchester

Fancy being part of this?

We’re looking for an intern for our Manchester arm of Guilty Pleasures to assist with the promotion of the night, build new contacts and spread the gospel of Guilty Pleasures to the good people of the North West.

The placement is for one day a week until December 2012. It’s the perfect opportunity for those wanting to gain experience and understanding of the marketing and promotions world with the bonus of working for a major club brand. (That’s us by the way).

We’re not after an expert, we don’t expect you to know it all from day one. We want to help you gain valuable experience as well as assist in making the brand a bigger success that way we all benefit. Maybe you’re looking to change careers or are just starting out in the world of work but need to get a better understanding of it all first, then this is the ideal opportunity.

Working alongside the Manchester team, responsibilities will include:

* Generating awareness of the brand and the parties
* Targeting potential marketing and promotional opportunities with local businesses
* Speaking to customers and clients and creating new networks
* Building the social media profile of the brand

Requirements for the role:

* Pro-active and able to work alone
* A good telephone manner
* Creatively minded, flexible and an enthusiasm for learning
* A love of music and some knowledge of Manchester’s club world

Travel expenses and lunch will be covered and it is an office based position in the city centre.

If this sounds like the position for you or someone you know then please email with a covering letter explaining a little about yourself and a CV and hopefully we will be working together very soon.

Good luck!

Manchester – have you got the GP Factor?

Are you a triple threat like Andrew Stone? Well who is frankly…

The GP Factor, have you got it? What the heck is it? Well, it’s a bit like the X Factor, just with less Adele covers and tantrums from disillusioned parents and more being very good at (or getting away with) being entertaining, silly and really rather brilliant fun all at the same time. Bit like this:

We’re after Manchester acts, be they dancers, or singers, cabaret performers, hula hoopers, roller skaters, or anything in between to come and be part of our night. If you’ve been to Guilty Pleasures you know we like to make it a bit of a show so any eye catching routine or performance needs to have a bit of the old razzle dazzle, so don’t hold back!

Get in touch at with a little bit about yourself, picture and a showreel or link so we can see just what it is that will knock our socks off and if all goes well, you could be performing on the Guilty Pleasures stage very soon!

Manchester Wigs on parade

Hot Gusset: Wigs on their heads and between their legs

Saturday’s party pictures from our new home of the Ruby Lounge are up and in your hair in the gallery now.

Some people didn’t wear a wig, but they did their hair nice, so that’s good. You can go and look if you like. It’s better than doing work.
