One team. Passionate. Open to all.

The role

We have an exciting opportunity to recruit a Technical Supervisor (Beyond the Main Stage) to join our Production & Technical team. The Technical Supervisor will help facilitate all technical aspects for a whole range of events appearing in our Beyond performance spaces. These include the Elgar room, Verdi restaurant, North Circle Bar and our arena bars such as the Berry Brothers Bar and the Heineken Green Room.

The person
The successful candidate will have extensive experience in all technical aspects of the entertainment industry. Candidates must have an excellent knowledge of sound and lighting, as well as an understanding of AV.

Applicants must demonstrate a team-oriented, enthusiastic and flexible approach and the ability to work well under pressure as events can change on a daily basis.  Integral to the position is an understanding and acceptance of strong Health and Safety practices.

Therefore if you currently work at the Hall and are successful in being recruited for this role, you would be unable to continue working in your existing role.
