About Connection Crew
Connection Crew is a forward-thinking, London-based crewing and logistics business. We provide skilled, committed, bright and responsible crew members for the corporate and events market - or any job that requires a crew. Our crew have a far broader skill set than the industry standard, an exceptional level of motivation and a hunger to excel; crewing is more than just a job to the Connection team. Our crew members are supported by an experienced and friendly management team, meaning that their expertise is backed up with equal efficiency.
We are proud to be a social business; in fact, we’re the only one in our industry. Our profit goes to a charity and 25% of our crew are ‘work ready’ ex-homeless people. This makes us even stronger. The whole team is highly motivated with an exceptional level of dedication and professionalism that sets us apart in everything that we do.
Description of services provided:
At the heart of our operations is our crew. So, whether you want 2 people for 2 hours or 20 people for 20 days, we’re here to help. We pride ourselves on delivering a service on site that is dependable and professional, giving our clients the confidence to develop a lasting relationship. All of our clients return to us for repeat business.
On a practical level we offer :
- Call outs for as little as 2 hours
Unlike a lot of companies in our industry, we do not operate a minimum one day call out. This means that if you have a small job for a small crew, you will only be charged for the work done.
- 24 hour service:
Our crew are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and when we can, we’ll supply you with a crew last minute at any time. Our 24 hour booking number is 0844 822 1515.
- Stage construction:
Connection Crew was founded on stage building. From day one, we have been an industry leader in the construction of a variety of staging systems and are familiar with each of the systems’ quirks and challenges. This ensures a fast and efficient build time.
- Set builders:
Our crew are experienced in set building and are familiar with a variety of techniques. We come with our own tools should you require and we have crew with a clear understanding of technical drawings.
- Audio visual support and technicians:
We provide a skilled crew who are AV literate and able to slot into any production alongside your technicians with great ease.
- Knowledge of sound:
We have technical crew members with great experience and knowledge of PA systems and backline. A lot of our crew are experienced sound technicians and engineers, meaning that they are capable of taking care of these areas with very little supervision. We understand the set-up of PA systems - from small conference venues to large outdoor concerts and have crew that are familiar with the live music environment.
- Knowledge of lighting:
Up lighters, moving heads, power and distribution are all included in our basic light training programme. Between us we have over a century of experience working with lighting under our belts. Remember to let us know if you need experienced lighting crew and we will include them at no additional cost.
- Health and Safety assessments:
All of our crew members are issued with a Safety Passport - a nationally recognised, industry standard certificate. This is not mandatory, so not every crewing company will issue these as standard to their crew. In 2010 Director Warren Rogers completed a NEBOSH in Occupational Health and Safety; enabling us to assess event sites and make recommendations required for the safety of the site.
We have our own vehicles to ensure the punctual arrival of our crews. Should you have larger transport requirements, we can quickly mobilise a solution.
Mobilising multiple teams of crew and vehicles London-wide, nationally and internationally requires a robust in-house system. We have this at the heart of all our operations and it consistently delivers our service with success. We use our bespoke, cloud-based software, METIS to book crew and keep a record of upcoming, current and completed jobs.
- Plant Operators:
We can provide drivers and qualified operatives for: Fork lifts, Scissor lifts, Tele-handlers, Boom Lifts, 7.5 Tonne Drivers - only available with hire of 7.5 Tonne Truck.
