Job Description

About the Job

We build stages and sets for exciting, unusual and innovative events for music, theatre, pop up festivals, TV, brand launches and all kinds of bespoke and intricate events. We have a social conscience too.....

We are looking for organised, reliable, motivated, and physically fit team players to build events in London’s most exciting venues. One day our crew members might be building stages and sets for a theatrical festival or rigging at a corporate concert. The next, setting up PA systems and lighting at a sporting event, or loading and unloading for a PR stunt or experience for a leading brand.

**We are hiring at all levels of experience**   **No experience needed**

We provide talented and enthusiastic crew members to support major event industry players – they are the best in the business so we have to be too. When we say it takes a special kind of person, we mean it.

We can do this because our team members have the right mix of skills. Some are strong, determined, and can take care of the heavy lifting. Others have technical expertise, and an eye for detail. We don’t do ‘crewing by numbers’. So we don’t hire by numbers either. We find each individual’s personal strengths: physical, intellectual, organisational, technical. Then we give you tailor-made training so you can thrive.

Essential Criteria:

  • Positive attitude and willingness to work hard
  • Physically fit
  • No nonsense approach to time keeping
  • Able to communicate effectively and work well in a team
 

Desirable Criteria:

  • Experience of working with AV companies or as an AV technician, or in the events industry in general
  • Manual handling experience of any kind, preferably heavy lifting
  • Driving license and experience of driving commercial vehicles
  • Warehouse work
  • Operators of telehandlers, Fork Lifts, Cherry Pickers or Scissor Lifts
 

Even if you have no experience, as long as you're up for it, we'd like to hear from you. To apply please send a CV if you have one, or just drop us a line detailing why you'd like to join the team - what interests you about event work and any relevant experience to  jobs@connectioncrew.co.uk

We started out in 2005 as part of the homelessness charity The Connection at St Martin’s. We employed people who had been homeless in the past, giving them a place in our crew and helping them develop purpose, confidence and independence. Social enterprises were fairly new at the time. But we thought: if we can do great work for great clients and support those people who need it – why wouldn’t we?
