Manchester Academy

Manchester Academy is an award winning, iconic music venue that is a part of Manchester Students’ Union, the largest SU in the country! The Academy has hosted some epic gigs, from Pink Floyd and Billie Eilish to intimate gigs by emerging local artists. We host hundreds of gigs a year, with over 300’000 fans coming through the doors. You can’t put on a great show without mind-blowing sound and lighting, so we are looking for a talented Assistant Technical Manager to oversee the technical aspects of a production, including engineering lighting and sound to a high standard. You’ll be working within the small, close-knit technical and operational team.

A typical day in the life of an Assistant Technical Manager could look like this…arriving at work 30-60 minutes before production load in time to ensure venue is ready to go. You’ll set up venue consoles and assist touring Crew throughout the day as well as liaising with Promoters, Reps and Operations Managers to ensure the smooth running of a production. During the show, you’ll be in charge of operating the lighting and sound, all whilst getting to watch some great bands perform. In between setting up for shows, you’ll be keeping up with admin tasks such as generating invoices for freelancers and show advances.

We offer a great range of benefits too! You’ll get 30 days of annual leave, an employer pension contribution up to 8%, enhanced sick/maternity/paternity/adoption pay, needs-based compassionate leave, travel loan scheme, staff discounts, free tickets to Manchester Academy gigs, access to an Employee Assistance Programme and access to our learning platform!
