Technical Engineer

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.

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.
