Head of Production

Central London | Global Events Agency | circa £60,000 - £60,000 per annum

Our client is a brilliant global events agency who are looking for an experienced events professional to lead their production department.

The role:

Following tremendous growth, this will be the agency's first permanent Head of Production appointment. It represents a shift in their strategy from dedicated freelance support to a bigger picture hire.

You:

Whilst you do not have to currently be a 'Head of Production' before (you may well be a Senior Production Manager looking for that next step), you'll certainly be comfortable with the following:

  • Understanding of lighting, sound, rigging, h&s, venue permits/approvals etc
  • Working effectively with other people in the agency (creative, client teams etc) and external suppliers - you probably have a pretty good black book of suppliers with whom you have worked with previously and who you trust to deliver
  • Preparing full production plans and also site plans - you'll certainly need to know CAD
  • Team management and operations - you're happy running the show from production meetings through to on-site delivery.
  • Good on the commercials - budgets range from £50k to £1m+

Structure & reporting lines:

The Production team will be under your wing. Ultimately you'll report to the MD.

Salary:

In the region of £60,000 - £65,000 but we are open to discussion on this point. Our client's focus is appointing the right individual.
