    Additional Skills

    Additional Information

    In my previous posts I have had to technically manage events both indoors and out, buildings and staff, making sure we were complying with all relevant legislation whilst appreciating the needs of a diverse range of users and event formats in an ever changing environment that is live performance.

    My duties have included drawing up rotas of staff and equipment, managing of budgets and capital expenditures within the department, and liaising with contractors over plant and other major equipment maintenance.

    I have experience of producing risk assessments both for events and buildings, portable appliance testing of theatre equipment and technical theatre equipment maintenance including moving lights, and many years as the production manager on events organising equipment, staff, and facilities. I have experience of lighting and sound design, set design and construction, scenic painting and prop making, hemp and counterweight flying and am no stranger to loading a truck at 3am and unloading another at 9am.

    I hold various industry relevant certificates such as IPAF, health and safety level 2, pyrotechnics safety awareness, first aid, MAC moving light servicing, temporary staging erection, and the basic three day rigging for the entertainment industry.

    I am used to setting work schedules both for myself and others, motivating and working within a team as well as being able to work on my own initiative and self motivate.

    I enjoy working both backstage and front of house as required, and am happy multi tasking, selling tickets, dealing with customer enquiries, liaising with agents and producers, serving on the bar or stage managing the show, all the time striving to build the venue’s reputation and maintain the highest standards of quality and customer care.
