Could you be the assistant manager of Rock City?
Rock City is looking for night owls with a passion for music, a great work ethic and a desire for a stellar event career to join the team at the legendary Nottingham venue.
It’s a rare chance to play a key role in the venue that has hosted landmark shows over its illustrious 40-year history, from Nirvana, Run-DMC, Rage Against the Machine, Daft Punk and Motorhead to Yungblud, Garbage, Queens of the Stone Age, Skunk Anansie, Placebo, Public Enemy and De La Soul.
The Assistant Manager role will strengthen the existing tight-knit team as they prepare for a busy year with a busy schedule of live events, rescheduled shows and popular club nights Tuned, Get Lucky and Rebel Rebel.
The right person will be part of a team working to deliver an exceptional experience to sold-out parties week after week with progressive production and an eclectic mix of DJs along with world-class live events.
Will Richardson, General Manager of Rock City, said, “If you have a passion for music, a great work ethic, and a feverish desire to pursue a career in venue management, we’d love to hear from you. The role is not your ordinary nine-to-five, it will be a mix of late and even later nights in a demanding industry. If you’re not a morning person and your friends and family constantly describe you as a night owl, this job will fit you like a glove.
A key part of the job will be liaising with bands, artists and tour operators to ensure everyone is having a good time, as well as acting as a duty manager for live events and club nights.
The role could start as early as next month and is open to those with industry experience looking to move up the ranks, as well as those already in a similar role and looking for a new challenge.
Despite the challenges of the past two years, the team at the Talbot Street site have kept the flame burning with an ever-evolving response to restrictions to enable it to remain open as much as possible.
Adam Wood, Senior Director of Promotions, DHP Family, said: “We came up with lots of live club night ideas for people to enjoy at home, turn the parking lot into an outdoor bar and even fill the famous dancefloor with tables and chairs so we could offer seated sessions.
“Anything we could do to continue to welcome people through our doors, we did and it’s thanks to our amazing team working together to bring these ideas to fruition. It’s a great place to work, so contact us if you share the same passion and drive to get things done, no matter the challenges.”
The successful candidate can expect to work on an exciting diary with upcoming shows from The Libertines, Tom Odell, Professor Green, Angels & Airwaves, I Prevail, Jake Bugg, The Fratellis, Ferocious Dog, Enter Shikari and Charli XCX for quote only a few.
