what it takes

A Silverback is a reliable, committed and driven individual who enjoys working as a member of the team in challenging environments with excellent communication skills. A crewman’s job is sometimes physically demanding and therefore candidates are required to possess a good level of fitness. You may also be expected to work long, unsociable hours and travel in and around major UK cities, however this allows our team to live a flexible, balanced life.

Whether unloading and loading trucks, setting up stages, working on audio visual equipment or operating plant machinery, we always invest and reward our crew who are willing to put in the work, empower each other, and do their very best.
