Who we are
Stage Engage provide professional sound, lighting, staging and audio/visual equipment hire and technical services for events. Based in Brentford in London and Exeter in Devon, we specialise in conferences, corporate and live events.
We are an established business with a reputation for bringing precise, professional and creative solutions to our strong following of clients. We are also well known for providing an extremely knowledgeable service with a notably friendly, can-do attitude, which is a major reason our clients repeatedly come back to us.
We provide a service that we are very proud of and this is delivered by a growing team, consisting of 8 employees and a vast network of freelancers and sub-contractors. The events we produce often bring new and exciting challenges, so we are regularly stretched to find unique solutions.
Who we need
An exceptional Audio-Visual Technician that plays a key role in taking the ideas and briefs of our clients and using your creativity and technical knowledge to create spectacular events. This position is based at our London office in Brentford, but you will be working closely with our Exeter branch and travelling throughout the country and potentially beyond. It’s important that you’re a team player with a passion for what you do with the ability to see the bigger picture, while also having an eye for detail, which is so intrinsic to the Stage Engage culture. You must be able to effectively self-manage your own time, use your own initiative and prioritise tasks. You’ll be a flexible problem solver that’s quick to learn and is easily adaptable to managing the fresh challenges of the day.
You’ll have experience of working in events and, more specifically, with AV, lighting, sound, staging and other areas of the technology involved in events. Most importantly, you are an enthusiastic person that is looking to make the most of the fun challenges involved in the events industry and wanting to be a part of the Stage Engage family.
