We build stages and sets for exciting, unusual and innovative events and so we are looking for organised, reliable, motivated, and physically fit team players. We build events for concerts, theatre and television, conferences, sporting events, and pop up festivals 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, from beginners to Crew Chiefs**
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 have a social conscience too.....we run an Academy to help people making their way out of being homeless.
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.
• 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
• Experience of working with AV companies or as an AV technician, or in the Events industry in general

Even if you have no experience, as long as you're up for it, we'd like to hear from you. If you'd like more information you can call us on 0207 231 8117.

Take a look on our website:
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?
