This is an exciting opportunity for individuals wishing to develop their skills and further their career in the production and technical sector of the live events industry. 

Integral to the building is the Production and Technical department who are responsible for the preparation, set-up, and operational requirements of every event across the Hall from the Main Auditorium, to Beyond the Main Stage areas including the Elgar Room and other spaces within the building.


The Production and Technical department are recruiting a technical supervisor.  We are seeking to make contact with suitably experienced technicians. We particularly welcome applications from those who are currently under-represented in our workforce.

We are seeking to recruit enthusiastic people with good knowledge and experience of all live-event related technical aspects including rigging, lighting, audio, AV and staging to work across all areas of the Hall to help deliver a busy and varied programme of events. Ensuring that events are exceptionally well planned and working closely with the Event Management team, the technical supervisors are responsible for the technical delivery of events and productions to the highest possible standard. Playing an active role on load-ins and load-outs as well as during rehearsals and the event itself, the technical supervisors have an overview of all technical activity taking place and are fully aware of the wider implications this can have on others.
