Our work 2021-02-09T11:32:48+00:00

We work with spaces and studios, project managers and producers, providing strong and smart support staff to get events, projects and productions up-and-running:

stages and sets

Stage construction, ground rigging, set building… this has always been our bread and butter. So we’re familiar with the quirks and challenges that come with different systems and installation techniques – we know how to get it built quickly and efficiently.

Setting up PA systems and lighting

Our specialist crew members have worked with PA and lighting systems for years, whether for conference venues or outdoor concerts. And our crew understand basic system installations, from a mic on a stick to a line array, from LED PAR cans to moving heads.

Specialist Operators
and tickets

Our drivers can operate forklifts on or off road, MEWP machinery, tele-handlers and cherry pickers. If you’re using a tower, our PASMA qualified team can ensure access is safe and easy. If you have a van up to 3.5 tonnes, we can provide a driver for that too.

Organising crew
and logistics

We use bespoke software to manage multiple crews and vehicles across our entire operation, to make sure our crews are always on-site, on time. And if you need vehicles for your job, we can provide those for you too.

Set savvy staff for film + TV

We provide production, electrical and art departments in film, TV and advertising with labour support services such as location or studio set-up and de-rig, skilled manual handling​ and specialist operators.

Skilled manual handling + porterage​

Our support staff are multi-skilled, so whether you need general handy man services or manual handlers and porters – we can help. We provide support staff to the facilities management industry, working with in-house managers and agencies alike.

Moves, re-fits and relocation

We work with property stylists, workspace managers and office managers to take on their labour support needs. Our teams can help with furniture moves, assembly and builds – and whether you need help with a re-fit, or relocation, we can provide a smart solution, fast.

Project management and team leaders

Our senior crew members act as a single point of contact for clients on site – leading our teams, so you don’t have to. And if you have a large project coming up, our project managers can support you from the planning phase through to delivery.

We enjoy working with Connection Crew; they’re really easy to work with. The crew are always friendly and reliable and they have a versatile skill set – which is important as they can be called upon to fulfil some unusual tasks in helping to bring together a production as varied as the One Show.

Senior Live Studio Co-ordinator,

We do good work in more
ways than one

We work with people who have been homeless in the past, training them up and helping them build a career in crewing. Many have become valued members of our team. This is good for our clients too. They receive our award winning services and build their Corporate Social Responsibility credits all at the same time.

Connection Crew CSR Account

We take regulated data to measure clients’ individual contributions toward the employment of ex-homeless people so that they can in turn use the endorsement to win business.

We launched the Connection CSR Account back in 2012 when social impact started to creep on to the corporate and public sector procurement agenda and we’re proud to be the first social enterprise to ‘payback’ our social impact to clients in this way.

It’s already helped over a third of our surveyed clients win business.
