Job Description

The Junior Technician position is fixed term, usually around four months, to suit the needs of the business and the applicant.  It is an excellent first step into the events industry for students and school leavers.

Each summer EPS contracts two or three Junior Technicians to provide extra capacity during our busy outdoor events season.  With a huge mix of work from festival to corporate, the ideal candidate will be knowledgeable, presentable, flexible, and enthusiastic.

This is an entry level role and while experience in events is desirable, it is not essential.  The majority of our work favours technicians who are multiskilled, working across sound, lighting and AV.  However, on occasion we have larger scale projects for which a preferred discipline can be utilised.  As a company with several audio technicians, a slight bias towards lighting would be preferred but not essential.

As a small multi-discipline company, you would be expected to lend a hand to other departments as needed.

Recent events have included music festivals, streamed conferences, theatre shows.  We have a wide range of work, which is fed into by our other departments.
