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:

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.
