Mike Neretrieks - Technician
Mike is an experienced technician and has worked on shows all over Europe; he has recently relocated from Colorado to Bristol (I know, why ?). After that sudden change of scene, Mike is keen to develop and improve on his technical skills on the wide range of event productions that Corporate Events roll out.
Jake Rundle – Trainee Warehouse/AV Tech
Jake, (or Jen’s Jake as he is known in the office) will be joining as a trainee technician. He is a fully qualified electrician having served an apprenticeship.
Part of the underlying Corporate Events HR ethos is to try and provide an engaging and exciting programme for young talent to develop and emerge. Corporate Events HR manager Jed Bowers comments: “Young people get a rough ride these days – if you don’t have the experience you can’t get a job, which is a bit harsh. Corporate Events like to try and give something back and people like Jake just need the chance to prove that they’ve got what it takes to do the job.”
Ruan Ellis – Warehouse Technician
Ruan joined Corporate Events on the 20thAugust to work alongside our resident experts, Gary and Greg. He has come from Production AV where he was testing and turning around kit in their warehouse.
All of the above new recruits are only part of the continuing Corporate Events expansion story – over the coming weeks and months, we will be recruiting for a further three full time roles due to business expansion.
Corporate Events Managing Director concludes: “We are adopting a very aggressive approach to recruitment just now – it’s too easy to get sucked into the media hype of gloom and doom, but Corporate Events is a fast growing business that needs great people on board to deliver this vision. That’s why it’s important to us to recruit the right people at the right time. And the right time for anyone to join Corporate Events is now.”
