Job Description
Event Set up crew are required to work setting up & packing up all types of events. As part of a Pinnacle Crew you get an insider’s view of some amazing venues. The work of our crew is varied. One day you will be unloading a truck outside a hotel, the next building a structure and laying covering at Farnborough Air Show, or helping the lighting, sound or set departments set up for a show or possibly being at an F1 event or at a movie premier assisting with the big screen installations.

You will initially start on a probationary period and upon successful completion of your probation, you will be promoted to general crew. A range of options will become available to you, including attending skills courses from operating forklifts, driving 7.5 ton vehicles, rigging, first aid, health & safety, show calls to follow spot operators.

Pinnacle has a policy of promoting from within. All the crew chiefs and crew managers started as general crew and have worked their way up through the ranks. Vacancies in the office are always open to the crew first. The majority of the senior management started as crew. The crew chiefs and crew are the face of the company. You play a key role in ensuring that the first impression is always a good one.

Pay and Benefits
All our crew are PAYE temporary workers. This means that you are paid for the number of hours that you are booked for. During your probationary period you will start on £8.00 per hour and if you have relevant experience you may start at a higher rate. In addition you will receive an out of town supplement if you are working outside of the main cities where we have our bases which are London, Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds with more to follow. As your skills and confidence grow and you show us your willingness to achieve and ability to lead, you will be given the opportunity to progress to Crew Chief and can expect to earn up to £14.50 per hour.
