Crewing company recruits ahead of Commonwealth Games partnership

Published on Monday, 13 September 2021

Local crewing company, Crewsaders Ltd, have partnered with the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games on the delivery of key events and media production. 

Crewsaders Ltd are an event focused crewing company with their flagship office anchored in Hampton-in-Arden, Solihull.

Despite the strain and uncertainty placed upon event companies and the entire entertainment industry throughout the pandemic, work has been taking place behind the scenes in the planning, procurement and partnership stages for the upcoming Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

At the forefront of this planning is the objective of championing West Midlands talent by appointing as many local suppliers as possible in hope of boosting the regional economy and leaving a lasting legacy in doing so. 

As a leading regional crewing company, Crewsaders has proved to be a natural fit for opportunities surrounding the Games and in particular with regards to strategic partnerships surrounding the delivery of event stadiums, opening and closing ceremonies and media production support. 

Calum McConnachie, operations director at Crewsaders said: “The Games is a great opportunity to harness new event talent within the locality of Solihull and beyond. It’s not every day that such a huge sporting event lands on your doorstep and whilst such huge investment is being tunneled into our event spaces we should look forward with optimism knowing that a great event legacy will emerge from the world watching what happens in Birmingham 2022.” 

In light of this new opportunity, Crewsaders are expanding their recruitment remit and are actively looking to take on immediate large numbers of self-employed workers on a project led basis surrounding The Games 2022.

Consequently, all work will be temporary but full-time within durations of 2-8 week blocks over the next year, making this an ideal opportunity for those who are self-employed within a wide number of entertainment, construction and hospitality sectors as well as for students or those currently in-between roles.

No previous crewing experience is necessary as training will be provided. Work will likely commence within key regional venues spanning Solihull, Coventry, Royal Leamington Spa, Cannock Chase Forest, Royal Sutton Coldfield and Wolverhampton.
