Awesome Reasons to Start a Career as an Event Crew Member

Do you love all things event-related? Have you always been fascinated by the behind-the-scenes work that goes into bringing some of the UK’s biggest events to life? 

If so, a career as an event crew member might be the perfect fit for you!

From the chance to work on exciting projects, to meeting new people, there are so many great benefits to working in this field. So, let’s dive in!

1. Exciting Projects

As an event crew member, you’ll get to be a vital player in bringing exciting and one-of-a-kind projects to life! You’ll work on a diverse range of events, from concerts and festivals to corporate ceremonies, film and TV productions, and experiential marketing campaigns. The chance to travel to unique locations and impressive venues such as Wembley Stadium, Manchester Central and the NEC Birmingham, is just one more perk of this dynamic role.

2. Team Environment 

Here at Silverback, teamwork and communication are essential skills to master for success. Working under a regional manager alongside a dedicated team of professionals, your job is to ensure events run smoothly and that everything goes according to plan. By building positive relationships with your team members, delegating tasks effectively and supporting one another, you will develop valuable skills that will benefit you in any future career, while creating unforgettable experiences! 

3. Scheduled Flexibility 

Many people choose the event industry because of the flexible scheduling. Event crew members work on a 24hr clock, meaning some of the hours can be unsociable. However, we’ve found this allows our team to live a much more flexible life, giving you time to pursue other interests or commitments – perfect for students, parents, or individuals looking for a side gig. 

4. Career Growth 

Finally, one of the best reasons to start a career as an event crew member is the career development opportunities. Our organisation provides expert guidance and support to both senior and junior members. With the right training plan and experience, you can move up the ladder and take on more complex roles within the industry. From project management to event planning and beyond, there are many different career paths available to motivated and diligent individuals.
