Whether you’re fairly new to the business or a seasoned professional, if you work hard and can have a laugh then you’ll find plenty of reasons to work with Pirate:
Jamie Mustow – Freelance Carpenter & Pirate
Working for Pirate Crew has allowed me to gain further experience within theatre and events. It has furthered my career and enabled me to work alongside other talented individuals. Some of the jobs have been tremendously challenging but the people you work with can get you through anything.
Simon Crowley – Automation Technician & Pirate
As a theatre technician I would never have dreamt of working for a crewing company before I heard of Pirate.
Jonathan Goldstone – Freelance Technician and Pirate
What I like about Pirate Crew is that you’ll be working with experienced technicians, not just people who are good at lifting. Every theatre technician has to crew sometimes, but Pirate makes sure their clients know what your skills are so they can use you to the best of your abilities. That way you gain experience, rather than lose skills because they aren’t being used. You’re paid on time, the work is varied and if Pirate likes what you do its regular as well.
Rob Smith – Freelance Carpenter & Pirate
Working for Pirate seems to be the best way of being freelance with the security of not always having to find your own work. And we get treated like equals.
Jim Compston – Freelance Technician & Pirate
After 13 hours of repetitive work the boys are still laughing and joking. Even if the work is horrendously hard the rest of the boys get you through the job. We laugh a lot, what other job can give you that? I can definitely see myself doing this for a long time.
Kyle Anderson – Freelance Technician & Pirate
I’ve been offered full time venue work recently and I wouldn’t even dream of it at the moment. This seems to be the only way to kick-start my career. I learn things from everyone I work with, work all over the UK and meet all the contacts that will make me a success in the future.
Gilles Pink – Deputy Head Of Stage & Pirate
Every day is different and we work in a variety of venues. People always seem happy and relieved to see us!
Martin Thompson – Head Of Stage & Pirate
As the Head of Stage at a production house I love getting out and doing extra work for Pirate Crew. The guys are great and all skilled. Everyone seems to have the same positive attitude to get the job done. I would highly recommend working with Pirate to any technical professional.
Chris Gibbs – Sound Designer & Pirate
I have been able to work throughout Europe for Pirate crew, working for huge clients. They always pay very promptly and without fuss.
Gary Pell – Technical Manager & Pirate
Working for Pirate is a great way of making the step between technician and production staff. You get to work on loads of new productions, meet other professionals and you get to use your brain.
