We need someone with good general DIY experience who can use a hammer, a glue gun, sander, pair of plyers and above all their brain to diagnose the issues and fix the problem at hand.

As well as actually driving the guests you will need to organise the guests in a nice but efficient manner so that the service runs as smoothly as possible.
