Work

with us

We’re always looking for dedicated, determined individuals to join our event crew. And we want to work with more charities, to help people with a history of homelessness find work, security and independence.

Event crewing is a unique job.

Every day is different.

One day you might be rigging at a theatrical festival. The next you could be loading and setting up AV at a corporate conference.

Getting to see amazing venues and events from the other side, working with some of the best talent in the industry; it can be incredibly rewarding – it’s also very demanding. But, we know that for the right crew member, the challenge is what makes it so satisfying.

And whether you’re new to event crewing or experienced, we can find your personal strengths and give you the right support or training so that you can thrive.

Our recruitment process has been designed to ensure a positive experience all round:

Lukasz Mart, Head of Crew at Connection Crew

‘It’s a feeling of satisfaction you can’t buy.’

Lukasz Mart, Head of Crew

Lukasz understands that a career with us offers amazing opportunities. He was new to crewing when he joined us in 2007 – and now he’s our Head of Crew.

‘As long as they’re passionate, people can learn here,’ he says. ‘The training starts on day one, right after the interview. And on site, people learn through experience. We have regular reviews – so, if someone wants to learn a skill, then they can tell us and we’ll try to find jobs for them where they can develop that skill. And we run advanced training for things like carpentry, rigging and truss.’

Now, as a senior member of the team, Lukasz has all kinds of responsibilities. ‘No day is the same,’ he says. ‘In the morning I might be doing a site visit, making sure everyone is on time and meeting the client’s expectations. I have tickets to operate machinery, so I can oversee that work on site, maybe on the cherry picker or the telescopic forklift. And in the afternoon I might be back in the office, writing reports, doing interviews, or running training. It’s never boring!’

Lukasz knows he’s exactly where he wants to be. And he believes Connection Crew is a great place for young people to build a career: ‘You see these amazing venues – museums, stadiums. And you work with the people who create these amazing events. Doing the build, and hours later seeing so many people enjoying it – it’s a feeling of satisfaction you can’t buy.’

Are you a charity interested in working with us?

Do you work with people who have been homeless but are ready to find work? If so, get in touch. They may be right for Connection Crew Academy: a 10 week training course that will teach them the basics of crewing, and hopefully lead to a job at the end.

Trainees learn everything from staging and infrastructure to health and safety, from audio and AV to carpentry. At the same time, our Impact & Personnel Officer helps them develop important soft-skills. And a mentor supports them day-to-day, helping them grow in confidence and independence.

This is a carefully-planned course that has been successful for many recruits. Lots of them have become much-valued members of our team. Others, with our help, have found roles in other companies.

The Academy runs three times a year. We’re now looking for recruits to start training. Email academy@connectioncrew.co.uk to find out more.
