Venue Technician – Aberdeen Performing Arts

We have an exciting opportunity for experienced and motivated individuals to join our technical team based at the Music Hall and the Lemon Tree in Aberdeen. Our hard-working and dedicated team make the magic happen as they support artists and their teams to bring live performances to the stage.

You will be responsible for delivering all technical and production elements of performance, conference, events and meetings taking place in our iconic city-centre venues.

The ideal candidate will have good experience of working in technical roles in the performing arts. Our technicians need to turn their hand to a variety of tasks across a range of genres from theatre to music, comedy to events, so you will be required to be a multi-skilled technician, although you may have a particular specialism. For this role we are looking for at least one successful candidate with a background in sound primarily as well as lighting and AV. Skills in other practical areas such as carpentry or electrics would be helpful, but not essential. We provide regular training and upskilling opportunities too. Most important of all is a positive and flexible approach to work.

Our team has really high standards and will rely on you to ensure first class production standards at all events, that health and safety is maintained at all times, that excellent customer service is provided to anyone we encounter, and that our venues and equipment are maintained and always ship-shape and show ready.
