On-site duties will include the set-up, monitoring and removal of temporary power systems for concerts, festivals, sporting and special events. Pre- and post-production work will include equipment repair and maintenance, manufacturing cable & equipment for our growing inventory, equipment preparation, and client communications during the planning phases of upcoming events.
ESSENTIAL DUTIES AND RESONSIBILITIES: (other duties may be assigned as required)
- Set up, monitor and remove portable power equipment for events throughout the Lower Mainland.
- Maintain and repair all rental cables, distribution, and equipment (excluding generators).
- Assist in planning projects by gathering scheduling, site planning, and electrical requirement information from clients. Ideally this position will evolve to include designing temporary power set-ups for upcoming projects.
