The Role

Based in North London, this is a very exciting opportunity to work with a highly motivated team of managers helping our clients bring their events to life using sound, lighting and AV technologies. The primary function of the Production Manager role is to quote, build, deliver and manage productions at some of London’s leading venues

This is an important role that provides the connection between our client’s requirements and our technical team with responsibility for the planning and on-site delivery of a variety of events to ensure the smooth delivery of projects.

The role requires an equal measure of production and technical knowledge along with sales and client management. You may currently be working as a sound, lighting or AV project manager in live events or as a senior technician looking to make the next move in your career. This role requires a technical background, with an all-round knowledge of using AV equipment in a wide range of environments, including corporate events, live music and large-scale productions. Experience of working within event and exhibition venues is essential.

  • Previous extensive experience as an event sound, lighting or AV technician is essential. This might be as an employee of an events AV company within a venue or as a freelance technician

  • Very good IT skills including being competent with Microsoft Office (Word, Excel and PowerPoint)
