Where our story started, Clownfish Events has transformed from its 2009 ‘shed’ roots to a client list that includes BAFTA, Apple, Virgin, Lloyds, and YouTube (sorry, let’s pick up the names we just dropped!)
Jaw-dropping events and flawless audio-visual are guaranteed thanks to more than £1m worth of stocked staging, audio, lighting, and video gear – and London’s best-in-class event management and technical production team.
Matt Turner runs Clownfish Events and is looking for keen-to-progress Junior Technicians to join his team.
About the Role:
Stocked with d&b audiotechnik, Clay Paky moving lighting, and Blackmagic Design cameras; our cutting-edge production equipment requires cutting-edge live technicians.
You’ll need to be happy working irregular hours and days (it’s the 24/7 nature of event production bookings). You’ll need to be flexible and bend-over-backwards for our brilliant clients. In return, you get the support (and adoration) of our Clownfish crew.
A true specialist in one technical field? A technical whizz that covers them all? Got solid knowledge and experience of temporary installation and operation as an audio, lighting, video or power engineer? This role sounds like it’s made for you.
We believe in letting you flourish – it’s the Clownfish way.
What a Day might look like:
Working alongside our existing team
Setting up temporary installation for live events
Operating audio, lighting, video and other tech
Engaging well with clients where necessary
Adapting and problem-solving on site
JOB TYPE: Freelance
KEY SKILLS: Solid understanding of Avolites consoles, moving lighting and rigging. Practical experience of d&b audio systems, including d&b Soundscape.
SCHEDULE: Event days are variable and hours are often irregular.
LOCATION: On site at venues across London and Surrey.
LICENSE/CERTIFICATION: A minimum of 3 year industry experience, in a specialist field and total competence of said specialist field.
SALARY: £175-£300 per day, subject to experience.
Good to know before you apply.
We know it can be daunting to apply for a job without knowing what it’s actually like to work there. So here it is, straight from the fish’s mouth.
What to expect at Clownfish
We believe everybody deserves the opportunity to grow; to thrive; to prosper. Especially at work.
After all, that is where we spend the greatest chunk of our week. We call it ‘flourishing’. And it’s what we’re all about.
Rigging events. Live-streaming from the studio. Delivering entertainment. Creating stories. When work ‘works’, it puts a spring in our step (or a swish in our swim).
We also believe our team should be free to be themselves. In fact, it’s what we want. It’s our differences that make us unique, interesting and creative. We may all be different fish but, in this school, we always swim together – we’re diverse and inclusive. It makes for a fun workplace where self-worth, genuine friendships and opportunities flourish.
The really exciting thing is we’ve only just dipped our toes in the water. We still have huge ambitions. We’re ready to show the world that a successful business cares about people and the planet more than profits.
We’re looking for outstanding people who share these ambitions. Big fish who are ready to dive in the deep end and swim against the tide.
After all, only dead fish go with the flow.
