The Other Side of the Gig

As well as working as an audio technician on many gigs, I have also spent a significant amount of my time working on the Operations team as an assistant to the Operations Managers at Britannia Row Productions.

My role ranged from sourcing and allocating equipment to booking and packing trucks, putting together carnets and manifests for tours and liaising with clients and suppliers.

Although Operations is not my chosen career path, I feel that having the experience has given me a much broader view on how tours and shows are put together and with that a greater understanding of how and why things work the way they do in our industry. I see this experience as invaluable and have been lucky enough to see jobs go from a quote from the sales team to the show itself.
