Pirate Pro technical events recruitment



What is Pirate Pro?

Pro is a specialist recruitment service for technical & production in Arts, Events and Entertainment. We collect comprehensive information from potential candidates about their skills, experience and motivations, and match them to industry job vacancies with specific requirements.
With decades of recruitment knowledge and working alongside some of our industry partners, we have created a database with proper & thorough information about jobs and candidates, which will save time and hassle for all. We bring this new service to the market, free for candidates and clients alike.

Why introduce this service?

Industry recovery will be difficult, with the effects of the last year expected to be long lasting. We don’t fully know the final impact yet. But we do know that we’re at a critical juncture. We ALL need as much help as possible to get back up and running.
Pirate is a people company, therefore we are acutely aware that workforce numbers have dwindled considerably over the past year. Many treasured talents have left the industry, never to return. Consequently, there will be a shortage of staff and a free-for-all-fight by companies trying to secure the right people to build and run their shows.
Pirate, as ever, is here to help. Using existing resources and some new systems, our aim is to get the right technical & production people into the right jobs and help get this industry moving smoothly once again.

What vacancies can be submitted?

Any industry job in the UK, over 6 weeks in duration with definite work and proper pay, can be submitted to us and matched to available candidates.

Posting a vacancy – how does it work?

Simply provide us with information and then we’ll get to straight work. You’ll need to give us as much detail about the vacancy as possible, right down to specific skills. The more info the better to get that match.
As soon as we receive your vacancy submission, we’ll then start to skills-match your job with talented job seekers. However, we may ask you for even more information to get it right first time!
We’ll compare your wish list against skills, knowledge and experience of our applicants. Once we determine the people who are a good fit for your show or organisation, we’ll contact you with a validated list of available options. At which time you can freely follow your own hiring process.
Pirate Pro Technical Recruitment service is free, but we will ask you for some feedback on candidates interviews, successful applicants and your opinion of our service.

Why Use Pirate Pro?

Save money, time and effort by using a comprehensive service from a trusted company. We’ve designed PRO to be as tailored as possible to the events / theatre industries and all of it’s technical disciplines.
Rather than look only at CV’s, we deep dive into each candidate’s specific skills and knowledge. Our aim to pre-check professional references means that we can be more confident of our recommendations. We hope therefore that this is a huge time saver for you.
You won’t receive hundreds of unqualified CVs without relevance to the available position. We absolutely intend to send you a validated shortlist of best-matched candidates based on the information you and they provide. If we can’t find an immediate match from our available list, then we’ll either admit defeat, advertise the role (with your permission) or present you with viable alternative options.
In any event, we will stay in contact and keep you updated on progress, just like you’d expect from a paid service. The use of automated processes and reliance on computers is kept to a minimum. This is a personal service just for you and the candidates so let’s work together to find the right solutions.
And if you’re not sure how to write the person spec or what to include in your job description? We’re here to help – contact us for some advice.
